Kwon: I’m Ready To Play Now

September 17th, 2017

Update his status

Exhale, Bucs fans, the reigning NFL leader in solo tackles and the heart and soul of the Tampa Bay defense delivered great news in the locker room after today’s pounding of the Bears.

Kwon Alexander and his tender hamstring could have returned to further throttle Chicago, Kwon said in the locker room, per sage columnist Ira Kaufman, Tampa Bay’s only Hall of Fame voter.

Kwon injured his left hamstring in training camp. Exclusive JoeBucsFan video here. After a heady interception of a sad Mike Glennon throw today, Kwon soon after left the game and did not return.

Although Kwon’s postgame words are great news, it’s still lousy that his hamstring acted up.

The Bucs have 15 more games (hopefully a few more than that) without a break in the schedule. Kendell Beckwith is an impressive and versatile rookie, but he’s no Kwon.

Joe just hopes young Kwon, just 23 years old, proves to be an impressive healer. It would be amazing if the Bucs could find him a game off later this season. It’s so damn hard to heal a hammy without rest.

    This is good news/bad news. Great that he could play but hammy’s can linger for an entire season. This could easily become a recurring problem…in fact it already has!!!

  2. Walter Says:

    I ain’t worried, Kwon ain’t the type of man to let a hamstring stop him

    The beauty of having good backups. This is going to be better than 2002!!!!

    Great news, but hope it’s true. As for Glennon, he was his same self. For the second time in his career, he put up 300 passing yards. He also completed about 68% of his passes. Had a TD, great. Two picks, not so great. But he brings no spark, can’t lead his team to raise their level of performance, and I’m thinking Trubisky starts for the Bears hence forth. I was glad he didn’t get put in today as the Bucs have a terrible track record with new QBs, most recently, Paxton Lynch last year.

    Beckwith played well at MLB. Nice to see a rookie step in and play so well in his 1st NFL game. Great pick Jason Licht!

    Hope Kwon is good to go next week and that the hammy gives him no more issues. But if needed, it looks like Beckwith can man that spot pretty well.

    We’ll be ok without Kwon, but we’re better with him.

  7. NOSBOS Says:

    When it’s all said and done this LB corp will be regarded as the best in the nfl.

  8. NOSBOS Says:

    Looking forward to seeing you next week Nightmare.

    Beck was solid, even the announcers on television took notice, how intelligently he was playing.

  10. uckinator Says:

    Walter – You have obviously not played football on any level. Unless Kwon gets rest, this injury will affect his play throughout the season. This is not an injury that you can get through mentally !

    You just made my night, Joe…. Genghis Kwon is my boy, love watching his explosion out there.

    Beckwith looked good out there, but he’s no GK

  12. teacherman777 Says:

    without Beckwith steppin in at MLB, we could have lost!!

    Great pick Licht!

    Glanton and Lynch both looked good too!!!

    Go Bucs!!

    I would rather he take his time. Hamstrings don’t just go away, they take time.
