Four Buccaneers On The Official Injury Report

September 5th, 2018

Things are really looking great for the health of your Buccaneers. 

The first official injury report of the season (it’s not required in preseason) is out and only four Bucs are having issues.

The biggest — literally and figuratively — is rookie defensive tackle Vita Vea, who hasn’t practiced since he walked off the training camp fields in July with a serious calf injury. The first-round pick surely will miss Sunday’s game in New Orleans.

Donovan Smith (knee), Evan Smith (hip) and rookie cornerback M.J. Stewart (foot) all practiced in pads on a limited basis.

In all, this is great news. And you can read more on Smith, and watch video of him practicing, on the home page.

Dirk Koetter noted after practice that this is the healthiest he’s seen his team in a while.

Amen, Coach!

    Bucs chance at victory went up with the addition of Donavan.

  3. mark2001 Says:

    Reolity…can’t be. We won the last showdown, and now we have a psychological advantage…and momentum…Bucs 30- Saints 17. Our first round pick from last year will lead the way to victory.

  4. Lord Cornelius Says:

    We fly in tomorrow for the week long vacation.

    LET’s F*CKING GO!!

    Drafted Peyton Barber in like every league I’m in lol.

  5. Greg Says:

    Hey joe any updates on Bo allen?

  6. NJBucsFan Says:

    Hey Bucs…go claim Boston Scott. Inside info and a good player can’t ask for a better situation. Plus the Saints did this with Brate two years ago. They just weren’t smart enough to keep him.

  7. Darin Says:

    Unrein is the biggest loss. Sucks he’s out for a while. Vea needs to get back soon. The deep Dline is suddenly thin. The addition of Nassib was made to try to replace Unrein, but he isnt nearly as good…yet anyway. I like him over Clarke tho. This team must stop the run first.

    Saints 45 Bucs 12

    I’m feeling a little more optimistic for Sunday.

    Bucs – 101
    Saints – 13

  9. Buchead5588 Says:

    Wow I really liked nassib he has a high motor will give everything he’s got every play great pick up you all will see great rotational piece I hope him an Spence can be a great 2nd unit worthy looked good as well in preseason I think Allen curry an jpp have this DL pumped an Buck will chew there ass out

  10. SOEbuc Says:

    Very nice! I thought like 2/3 of this team was gonna be on injured list. Except for Vea, seems like these guys are almost back to 100% and not taking any chances till sunday. This pleases me.

    Why dont you cheer for another team? Between this and when your name was T-max you always just whine and b*tch. If you hate the bucso much take a hike. You prob complained about the bucks team that won the superbowl.

  12. Neal Says:

    @Reolity-is-a-Beotch. Honest question. As a Panthers fan where do you find the time to stalk every other teams website? And if you are a Bucs fan then why on earth do you let your life be so miserable? You come here every day to complain and troll a bunch of people with obviously dumb statements. If you put this much energy into ANYTHING else you might actually be happy for once.

  13. Bird Says:

    Reolity is a snitch. Aka tmax. Aka thong boy.

    He’s scared. Hiding with new name. Just go back to tmax wears a baby thong. man up to your opinions. Pretty sure the Joe’s know it’s you anyway

  14. Greg Says:

    Any news on Beau Allen Joe? We need DTs bad.

  15. SchwiftyBuc Says:


    If he isn’t on the injury report that means he’s healthy…

  16. Clw JB Says:

    Going to the French Quarter tomorrow, will be in the lower bowl corner on the BUCS sideline watching us start the season right, with a VICTORY!!!!

    LET’S GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. BucEmUp Says:

    Koetter will call plays while Monken picks his nose wondering why he isn’t calling plays. He picked up nose picking from.sittimg next to Smitty in the box.

    Smitty will continue to call soft coverage defense all game…every snap while picking his nose, accepting booger gifts from Monken and eating them both wondering how long he will make it before getting this entire staff fired.

    Koetter will get another jab at head coaching and be the next Great Head Coach after learning that Smitty was his biggest anchor to failure all along.

    Bucs get the crap beat out of them all because Smitty eats boogers.

  18. Chris in WA Says:

    Tmaxipad, er… Reality, will continue to troll this website as long as people take his weak bait and respond to his trolling.

  19. SchwiftyBuc Says:

    I normally disdain your posts BucEmUp, but there’s just something so intrinsically funny about picturing Smith, as you put it, accepting booger gifts from Monken. I laughed pretty damn hard at that.

  20. Buccfan37 Says:

    This will be a close hard fought game with a TD or less difference for the winner. Go Bucs!

  21. Steven007 Says:

    Any regular around here know that Trollmax – AKA: Reality-Is-I-Still-Live-With-My-Mommy, is simply a troll and nothing more. He gets less traction these days with his yawn worthy “takedowns” of Dungy and GMC. He’s a one note troll, which is the least interesting kind anyway. Sits at home and sucks on his mommy’s teat, constantly hitting refresh to see the reactions to his thoughtless bile. Don’t give him the pleasure. It’s a troll’s life.

  22. Reolity-is-a-Beotch Says:

    you guys are hilarious… attacking me personally because you can’t dispute the FACTS….. I am the voice of reality! You know that I am dead right about the pathetic on-field product.

    little Stevie you need some new material

    Chris WA…. Don’t you have some sidewalk poop to pick up in that liberal pool formerly known as the state of Washington

    Bird – I am a commando guy Bonzi is the thong guy

  23. jmarkbuc Says:

    Screw “WREAK HAVOC”

    I’m down with… “Smitty eats boogers”

    You win the day BucEmUp. LMAO

  24. Godeep66 Says:

    @reolity: I got you back. These snowflakes will chill out once the cooler temps arrive, as that always comes with the Bucs having another lost season.

  25. AmericasEnabler Says:

    Just know the Saints had a phenomenal preseason on defense take it with a grain of salt but I think IF the bucs can hang with them then that’s going to go a long way for the season.

    If Smith is out it’s going to be a looooooooong game.

  26. SchwiftyBuc Says:


    just know that Reality, or Tmaxipad, doesn’t have your back. For as much as he seems to hate the Bucs, he loves Jameis. He’s said multiple times that Jameis will go down as the most important player in Bucs history. So you 2 have nothing in common bucko.

  27. Pete Says:

    Bucs 18
    Saints 17
    Catanzaro is 6 for 6

  28. Pete Says:


  29. @SarasotaJay Says:

    Me and my buddy will be in NOLA on Friday. Looking forward to the festivities!

    Bucs win 27-24 in a sloppy game with terrible calls by the ref but the Bucs get most of lucky bounces and calls. Will Lutz last second field goal is blocked by VHIII coming off the edge!

  30. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    Tmaxcon must have gotten booted off the site again. He;s using yet another new username: Reolity-is-a-Beotch.

    At some point, maybe Joe will do a poll asking if he should IP ban him so he can never return.

  31. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Interesting how trolls claim their opinions are facts, but if confronted with real facts, everything they claim falls apart.

    Personally, I’m trying to turn over a new leaf. As tempting as it is, I’m trying to ignore them. Sometimes I succeed in doing so. Sometimes I fail.

    Best way to get rid of them? Completely ignore them.

  32. Dave Says:

    Reality is a little bitch

    ( I may have misspelled that )

    Why are you here? Go watch soccer

  33. unbelievable Says:

    Glad to have D. Smith back.

    Hopefully MJ Stewart can play too.

  34. Howard Cosell Says:

    Howard is afraid that Vea is carrying on the proud tradition of Carl Nicks and JR Sweezy……sure hope not

  35. Steven007 Says:

    TrollMax, my material is obviously just fine. It got you responding didn’t it?

  36. Tampaspicer Says:

    If you ignore the trolls and never respond to them they will go away. That’s how the intronet works.

  37. James Says:

    Hey Bucs…go claim Boston Scott. Inside info and a good player….

    He was released today. Your insider info let you down.

  38. Godeep66 Says:

    @swifty: you of an odd name since you are as SLOW as they get. That’s like calling JW HONESTY. grow a pair snowflake.

  39. Mike Johnson Says:

    I won’t predict a score for Sunday. I will say this though..If this Bucs team can somehow pull out a victory this Sunday…. We will be Ok going forward.
    But they really got to ball out.

  40. SchwiftyBuc Says:


    Haha, that was a garbled mess of an attempt at an insult. Maybe learn to speak English before you come at me again you soyboy.
