Seferian-Jenkins Returns To Practice Field

October 28th, 2015

Seferian Jenkins StockerThe Bucs’ big tight end who doesn’t play very often, second-year man Austin Seferian-Jenkins, returned from his shoulder injury today on the practice fields of One Buc Palace.

The Bucs were in pads banging each other around, but Lovie Smith made it clear Seferian-Jenkins is just getting back on the comeback trail.

Seferian-Jenkins hasn’t played since Week 2 in New Orleans, and he hasn’t practiced.

Joe has a gut feeling Seferian-Jenkins will play Sunday, but not much, possibly only in passing situations.

    Even if he only plays a few downs on Sunday, having ASJ back is still good news with VJax and Murph out, and Shep just coming back from a hamstring injury. I expect the Falcons to score a lot of points against our defense, and we’ll need all the help we can get if we’re going to keep pace scoring.

    Joe, looking at the snap counts from the Redskins game, I’m really confused. Lansanah and Carter together only got 19 defensive snaps. Swearinger and Moore only got 6 snaps total. What’s going on behind our DLine?

    If he plays I will be using him on fantasy football. He’s cheap. Fantasy football keeps me interested in this God forsaken season.

    I was watching “Jalen & Jacoby” over on Grantland. The consensus was that “some players, despite their great talents, are just injury prone”.

    Sadly, ASJ, despite his on-field talent and All Pro potential, is injury prone.
    I’m reminded of the great Derrick Rose. This is a problem for the Bucs.

    In an ideal world ASJ would be able to play in enough games and contribute at a high enough level, like the immortal Chargers TE Kellen Winslow, to offset his inevitable injuries. This has not been the case, not even close.

    Sadly, the Bucs vision of using a legitimate multi-pronged (RB, WR, TE) attack won’t be realized until they can draft or trade for a legitimate 2-way TE that isn’t injury prone.

    The Bears traded All-Pro TE Greg Olsen (DUMB MOVE) and a few years later got lucky and got former NYG/DAL TE Bennett. Bennett was a good TE that blossomed into a really good TE. And, best of all, he’s not injury prone.

    Maybe ASJ’s injury history (college and pros) will level out to him missing, if we’re lucky, only 2-3 games a season. A better solution may be to look at the 2016 draft (trade ASJ for a high draft pick) or FA list for some help.

    With the DL and DB’s being a priority for the 2016 draft, we might have to depend on getting lucky in FA to find a good 2-way TE…who isn’t injury prone.

    Go Bucs…!!!

    Heard an Atlanta media guy on DAE this morning call one of the Falcons receivers Hankerson a “chandelier”. Hilarious and fair to say ASJ falls into chandelier status going forward!

    Wow you guys just hate everyone don’t you. Anyone remember his huge week 1? Fact of the matter is, nobody in he NFL is injury prone. It’s truly a miracle that someone doesn’t go down for the season on every play. You can sit at a bar and drink beer every Sunday and eventually you will break something. Shut up and respect the players who produce when they are out there.
