DeSean Jackson Says “Pray For” Kwon Alexander

October 21st, 2018

Joe already has written about the bad news surrounding Kwon Alexander’s injured knee, but it appears the worst possible football situation has been confirmed.

DeSean Jackson reached out on Twitter minutes ago to say Kwon’s season is over and he should get your prayers tonight.

You can read Joe’s post about the NFL Network reporting on Kwon’s injury here, and Joe’s take on contract ramifications that could end Kwon’s future in Tampa.

The Bucs sure will miss Kwon. He’s not a perfect player, but he had a hell of a first half today and the Bucs don’t have a backup who can step up and fill his shoes. And please don’t tell Joe that Kendall Beckwith will be ready to ball out soon. The guy hasn’t practiced since 2017.

    Unfortunately the next-man-up mentality is only reserved for good things……….we have a difficult enough time getting our starters prepared weekly. I would love to believe that we will see a new form from this team this year but that’s wishful thinking at best.

    You pissed me off a couple times this year Qwon but I’ll still miss ya out there.

  2. JimmyJack Says:

    Teams***” not things

  3. John Says:

    So what’s up on beckwith??

  4. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    What happened to Cichy? Is he done for the year too?

  5. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Really bad break for a good player…..let’s hope he has a successful recovery…..this will cost him some money at the very least….

  6. LakeLand Says:

    It’s a tough break
    But it’s part of the game
    Next man up

  7. LakeLand Says:

    I’m pretty sure he’s mad that the Bucs didn’t extend him before the season

  8. WyomingBucsFan Says:

    Whats a perfect player Joe? Was that really necessary to say? I mean come on Joe’s.

  9. Trench War Says:

    So sad, get well Kwon. Hopefully you’ll be healed, and ready for camp next season. God speed.

    At the rate this defense is losing players to injury, by the end of the season it will be a different team than what we started with. Hopefully Beckwith is ready soon. Any info on Jack Cichy?

  10. Destinjohnny Says:

    This is really sad for Kwon and his people.
    Will say a prayer tonight for you Mr Alexander

  11. Simeon Says:

    Tough break, but good teams play with injuries.

  12. MadMax Says:

    tough break Kwon…damn! Just heal and get back to it slowly.

  13. JimmyJack Says:

    Wyoming is Know above critism?

    The guy has been handed a big role on this team and has been a complete dissapointment this year. If you ask me Joe might have been holding back a bit out of respect……..As was I in my first comment.

  14. Don Perry Says:

    Sign Bowman and convert Spence to LB.

  15. OneBucPerson Says:

    I’m guessing Riley Bullough is gonna get re-signed. Sucks about Kwon but honestly from a business standpoint this is good for us. Now we don’t have to massively overpay an extremely average LB.

  16. Buc4evr Says:

    I’m not a big fan of Kwon, but I never want to see a player injured and lose his job because of an injury. Very sad, hope he heals and plays next year.

  17. Wesley Says:

    What the heck is up with Beckwith? He looked good last year.

  18. Reality-is-a-Beotch Says:

    Sucks for kwon. Good luck to him


    I know Dotson is your boy but how about a post on how pathetic oline is, especially the right side. Dotson is atrocious

  19. MadMax Says:

    ^ you know Beckwith broke his ankle in a car crash earlier this year right?

  20. MadMax Says:


  21. MadMax Says:

    mustve said a trigger word…@Wes, Beckwith broke his ankle earlier this year.

  22. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Have there been any updates on Beckwith lately. Outside of the initial news of the car accident I haven’t much, if anything about Beckwith and a possible return.

  23. Calbucsfan Says:

    Hey Joes JJ, , nobody’s perfect, including you guys. So what’s the point of saying anything in this piece, especially on THIS day of all days, beyond expressing sympathy, sending good wishes, and offering prayers if so inclined?

    Kwon has given his all and has been a warrior for the Bucs, even if he doesn’t wear a cape. God bless you Kwon and may you heal swiftly and completely. You’ve earned huge respect from me and I will always be a fan, regardless of who’s uni you wear and certainly hope it’s pewter and red again someday.

  24. adam from ny Says:

    once kwon got injured the entire defense changed today…he had the middle of the field on lock and cleveland couldn’t do sh*t to us…once he left cleveland had open run to the entire middle of the field…facts!…

    where is riley bullough???

    i know he took an injury settlement…does that mean he’s done for the year?

  25. adam from ny Says:

    get better kwon – i hope they resign you man!…

    yes you looked like a new force now that smitty’s defense has been kinda regulated

  26. NewTampaChris Says:

    Always sorry to see an injury. But this has been a horrible defense WITH Alexander, GMC, David. Hard to believe there is a big drop off from terrible to horrific.

  27. TiredBucFan Says:

    They need to take that money that they’re gonna screw Kwon out of and use it to sign Levon Bell to a long term deal.

  28. EA Says:

    Time to ring up Joe Dirt.

  29. INSPIRED Says:

    Adam from NY, you are Right On The Money buddy!

    No matter what some of these people say the truth is once Kwon left the field, the Browns took over…..

    Watching him play today made me wonder if “for him” he was waiting for Smith to go because he was CLEARLY reinvested and SHOWED UP BIG TIME with the LOCK on the middle of that field today. He was a new man and I’m starting to think un replaceable for the rest of the year with his caliber of play he showed today.

    I think that without him we are TRULY in deep with rocks tied to our legs….

    God Bless you kwon and I hope you have a speedy recovery buddy. You are a 1st class WARRIOR and you will certainly be missed….!

    God help us. Our BEST shot at contending in the middle of the field shouldn’t have to come down to one player but I think the clouds just parted on the truth, and it just showed how important that man was and is! (For anybody paying attention that is)


    GO BUCS!!!!!

  30. Not there yet Says:

    Who we have on the roster at this point cannot provide the same juice as Keon, big loss but get healthy you will be a long term buc. Only one who can save this defense now is beckwith, there is no other starting caliber option

  31. JimmyJack Says:

    Cal…….Funny of you to bring it up because now I have to remind you again about how badly Kwon has been playing this year.

    Like I said I kept my comment as respectful as I could while also sharing my opinions as a Buc fan……..BTW this is a site for Buc fans.

    Just because I am critical of the man does not mean I care less or more about him as a person then any other fan. I actually think it’s wrong of you to try to make me feel guilty for sharing my fanhood critism……….Know Alexander is paid handsomely to play a game for our entertainment and if I choose to be critical that’s my perrogative.

    but like I said you guys want to keep calling me out and I’ll keep reminding you how bad of a stiff the guy has been

  32. Bucanole Says:

    Kwon wasn’t world beater. But he was a solid player. He’s done 10-12 months. No safety net. No guarantees. No contract. Damn.

  33. JabooBuc Says:

    Never good to see a player go down like that especially when he’s ready to cash in on a contract year. He was having a great first half so sad to see. Hope he has a good insurance policy.

  34. Mike Johnson Says:

    yes, its aheelva bad break. But its an opportunity for somebody on the squad to shine..I hope. Plug him in and keep on marching. Other teams do it. We are no exception. We had 2 defensive starters injured for the Browns game and still won. That has to be the mentality. NO EXCUSES. Ruck up Bucs. NEXT!!!

  35. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    Kwon will be a Patriot for the next 10 years

  36. Todd Says:

    This is when you fire you agent for not getting a contract extension done when marpet did

  37. 1sparkybuc Says:

    The problem with the D was the DC, not Kwon. He loves this team and the team loves him. He will be back and he will dominate.

  38. Defense Rules Says:

    Speedy recovery Kwon. Your leadership on this Bucs’ defense will be really difficult to replace, but that’s not YOUR problem right now. Focus on first things first … GET HEALTHY. You’ve got a long NFL career ahead.

    @TiredBucFan … “They need to take that money that they’re gonna screw Kwon out of and use it to sign Levon Bell to a long term deal.” Really? Sign Leveon Bell? Heck, Godzilla couldn’t have run behind our OLine yesterday. Maybe THAT needs to be fixed FIRST? And … how does signing any RB solve our MLB problem? Our 2 experienced MLBs (and signal-callers) … Kwon & Beckwith … are BOTH on IR now. One is just now going on, and is probably staring at a long recovery period; the other has been on IR for a long time & most likely won’t be playing MLB for us any time soon.

    ‘Next Man Up’ works only IF you have the horses (depth) to make it work. HINT … Bucs don’t. Beckwith is a true MLB. Kwon wasn’t … but he’s got excellent strong or weakside LB skills and can back up the MLB if need be. We didn’t JUST lose the man filling the physical position yesterday, we lost our defensive captain & signal-caller. You don’t typically replace THAT with a rookie or off-the-couch FA.

    This Bucs’ defense had some ‘lapses’ yesterday, but overall played exceptionally well for a defense that’s totally beaten up right now. (Admittedly it was against a Browns’ team that insisted they didn’t want to win the game but you take what your opponent gives you I guess). Our D played with heart & played aggressively I thought, and that’s a great start. But you still have to have the horses to pull the big wagons, and ours has too many ponies right now. The real TWO questions going forward are (1) ‘Can our Bucs’ offense play GOOD ENOUGH to win us some ballgames?’ and (2) ‘Can this defense play GOOD ENOUGH to keep us in ballgames?’ And oh ya, maybe a third question: ‘When are we gonna fire the S/Ts coach?’

  39. Bob in Valrico Says:

    Speedy recovery Kwon. Hope your inspirational leadership spreads to other players.

  40. Clarence Says:

    Wow, that first half without Mike Smith in charge and Kwon looked back to his old self. What a shame :/

  41. JabooBuc Says:

    Defense Rules: well said. Losing Kwon is a major blow. Not just because of the leadership he provides, but with Beckwith coming back in a couple of weeks we potentially had a really solid LB crew to finish this season.

    This team is going to need to score some points going forward. And can we PLEASE find a RG?

  42. Clarence Says:

    OMG Benenoch was SO BAD. It was stressful to watch

  43. LongSeason Says:

    Praying for you Kwon.

  44. orlbucfan Says:

    Losing the Kwonster is still another example of Buc Luck/Curse. We long time fans are used to it. Hurry up and heal Kwon! LVD will take over in his quiet way. My question is WHEN is Dirk Koetter going to call a creative game plan as opposed to a stinky (offensive) one? Even with the uneven play of the oline, the talent is there. This offense can do trick plays. It can do QB bootleg plays. It can do reverses. It can do laterals. We FINALLY have enough offensive (non stinky) talent to pull these off. So, how about it, coach? Next week against the Bengals is a da##ed good place to start!

  45. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    I know that Kwon doesn’t always make every play that we would like him too, but damn that kid plays with SO MUCH heart & passion. He is someone worth rooting for. Yes we are praying for you, Kwon.
