It’s Official: Ke’Shawn Vaughn Off COVID Reserve List

August 9th, 2020

Bucs rookie Ke’Shawn Vaughn.

The Bucs’ third-round pick is back!

The rookie running back was seen running on a One Buc Palace practice field earlier this week. There was even a picture on (Yes, the COVID-19 reserve list is a complicated situation based on the rules Joe has read).

Regardless, Ke’Shawn Vaughn officially has returned to the Tampa Bay roster, per a team announcement this morning.

Opening kickoff in New Orleans is in just 35 days. So Vaughn’s got to prove himself in a hurry to see action in that game outside of special teams.

For his sake, and the team’s sake, hopefully Vaughn is a quick study on special teams. The Bucs could really use a boost in that area.

    I was confident that this would happen. I was 99.8% sure actually. THAT confident

    Watched a highlight reel of him on YouTube….looked a lot like Rojo’s. Big gaping holes that he eat up yards but nothing spectacular. He was routinely run down from behind and didn’t show much ability to create something out of nothing. Maybe he’s a more well rounded version with better pass blocking but other then that not overly dynamic. Time will tell but RB has been one of those positions that Licht has shown little ability to scout well.

    Thank goodness.

  5. BucEmUp Says:

    Hopefully someone grabs a hold of the return man duty. We need more yardage to start better drives.

  6. Cannon Says:

    I wonder how his breathing is doing?

    RB is generally the easiest position to master quickly. If I was Vaughn I would have perfected my pass pro before anything else.

    This is the best GROUP of RB’s we’ve had in awhile. We have Rojo ready to blow up this year…we have Shady for veteran stability and production and we have a lot of potential in Vaughn.

    Usually it’s been one stud…Doug…or no studs…Barber and Rojo…to have three potential solid contributors is exciting.

    Rojo college film is quite spectacular.

    He had a bunch of over 50 yard TD runs. Some with gaping holes and some with no gaping holes. Point to me all the times that ROJO was caught from behind.

    ROJO had plenty of plays also where he created something out of nothing in his college play.

    Just not getting the comparison between the two players.

    If Joe allows it – here is a highlight reel of ROJO to support his explosive play making as I just posted:

    By the way go and look at Miles Sanders college highlights.

    They pale in comparison to ROJO.

  11. DaBux Says:

    Geno, RoJo was in the PacCwap conference which does not play much defense other than UW. So RoJo’s stats and highlights do not mean squat to me, especially since he can not pass block to save his life.

    vaugn looked damn good against SEC Defenses, imho i rooting for em for sure, Rojo has been poor to lackluster since he got here and i really do not expect any change, prove me wrong rojo and i will be pleasantly surprised, but i expect vaughn will beat him out and carry most the shares eventually after shady, rojo will get his share along with cailais

    Rojo averaged 10.8 carries a game last year. He didn’t get the ball enough. Over 700 yards with a 4.2ypc average is far from lackluster. He can’t block to save his life though so there’s that. Lol
