Expect Jordan Whitehead, Antoine Winfield, Jr., And Lavonte David To Play In The Super Bowl

February 5th, 2021


The Bucs are getting healthy in a hurry. Very healthy.

In today’s final pre-Super Bowl injury report, only two players are listed as questionable: furniture-hurling, bicycle-unfriendly Antonio Brown (knee) and Cameron Brate (back).

It’s awesome news, because that means Lavonte David (hamstring), Jordan Whitehead (knee) and Antonine Winfield Jr. (ankle) are ready to roll. Hopefully, those three were completely honest with trainers and team doctors about their conditions.

It won’t help the Bucs if Whitehead’s shoulder pops out on his first big hit and Winfield and David are playing a step-and-a-half slow.

Damn, this is all great news.

    Really hope these guys are close to full strength and that Brate is good to go too!

  2. gp Says:

    Cappa’s the only one not suiting up and I’m pretty sure he would too if they’d let him!

  3. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Hell yeah!

  4. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Not good news for Mahomes.

  5. Mitch Says:

    I really hope Brate is healthy enough to play. I was more confident yesterday but he didn’t practice today… it’s a similar pattern to what happened to Antoine. Injured on Thursday can’t go Friday and then missed the game.

  6. Hodad Says:

    I know Whithead is dealing with a knee issue, but didn’t he dislocate his shoulder two weeks ago? Isn’t that the real concern Joe? The way he hits, I don’t see how he can hang the whole game with a bum shoulder.

  7. Devinwhiteshorse Says:

    Hell yeah!! Let’s go BUCS!!

    Boom! Heck yah.
    AB will play too…watch. He is looking for payday
    Brate is the least of my worries but i am guessing he will give it a go

    Winfield is best db in my opinion
    Like carlton davis but he has good games and then a green bay packers game where he literally gave up every big play

    Whitehead is our head hunter. He just needs to stick is other shoulder in the opposing player

  11. SOEbuc Says:

    Relaxation at home and OBP from two weeks.

  12. Mike Says:

    So basically, it’s all hands on deck and everyone is suiting up. Hope they are healthy enough to play at their best!

  13. PSL Bob Says:

    Don’t like the possibility of Brate being out. That dude is always clutch on critical downs. Would the Bucs be better with AB in the game? Yes, because it gives the defense headaches to cover him and opens things up for other receivers. But, if he can’t go on Sunday, the Bucs can make do. If Brate or AB has to miss the game, I’d much rather it be AB. We need Brate.

  14. Lamarcus Guiton Says:

    Can they add Godwins inability to live up to his billing in the report? Just a random thought. Maybe he needs to be honest and ride the bench this time

  15. adam from ny Says:

    as it should be…

    north dallas 40…

    play like it’s the last game of the year
    (oh wait…it is the last game of the year)



  16. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    This means our entire defense…..every single player that we began the season with will suit up for the game…..100%…..That’s amazing!!!

  17. Bird Says:

    Google to find winfields cleats

    Him and his dad on shoes
    Pretty cool
    He’s playing

  18. BillyBucFan Says:

    He’ll yeah baby.
    Here comes Auclair or Hudson with a TD catch.
    I’m happy for those guys to get a chance, even though I love Brate.

    They won’t respect these guys not knowing their names.

  19. pick6 Says:

    bucs haven’t been this healthy since the season began. early season the WRs were playing through alot of injuries, midseason we lost Vea and towards the end it seemed like every player in the secondary was week to week at some point.

    great to have it all coming together vs an opponent where we’ll need every scrap of talent to win

  20. buxszntkt Says:

    sure hope Jordan’s shoulder can deliver his huge hits !

  21. TampaTown Says:

    I’m worried about CB84 hope he’s ok and can go

  22. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Lamarcus: Uh, Godwin had 5 catches for 110 yards against Green Bay. I’m sure you could do better, but that’s still pretty good.

  23. Clean House Says:

    Makes me sick for any player that can’t dress for this- Love Brate- he’s one of our original guys- deserves this!!!

    Get well Cam!!!

  24. orlbucfan Says:

    Some one would have to murder LVD to keep him outta this game. He’ll be there.

  25. Youngbucs Says:

    Lamarcus ride the bench like ya boy????🤡

  26. Bird Says:

    It’s unfortunate that lamarcus still comes to this site
    Straight trash

    He has ripped every player except jameis who he called a HOFer

  27. Defense Rules Says:

    @Lamarcus … “Can they add Godwins inability to live up to his billing in the report? Just a random thought. Maybe he needs to be honest and ride the bench this time”.

    Seriously Lamarcus? Godwin was hurt almost all season, has been playing with a broken finger, and STILL caught over 77% of the balls thrown to him (65 of 84) for 840 yds receiving in just 12 games, to include 7 TDs (tied for 2nd most on the team with Gronk). Not enough for ya? Good thing you’re not the Bucs coach if you’d have him ‘ride the bench this time’.

  28. Listnfrmafar Says:

    North Dallas Forty, pretty good and the coaches name in the movie was BA. Brate will play, KC def is about to see the entire receiving core. Good luck with that.

  29. BradyBucs Says:

    This is all GREAT news for us.

    We really need Brate healthy and playing. He does so much for the Offense and is such a clutch receiver.

  30. Scooter Says:

    If a 7 time !st team Pro Bowler is on the field and physically capable, it’ll make it easier for the offense.

  31. Bucsfan951 Says:

    No LaDumbarse, that’s your man crush that rode the bench this year.

    Why are you even here? You’re not a Bucs fan!!! You’re a JW fanboy

  32. BradyBucs Says:



    If the Bucs win the Super Bowl at Ray Jay, a game most believe the Bucs are underdogs for (like our past 2 playoff games)…

    Does the “Den Of Depression” get retired?

    We certainly didn’t play well at home this year in some big TV games, but I would think winning the Super Bowl at home in that same stadium would warrant the retiring of that old moniker.

  33. BradyBucs Says:


    Look at Lamarcus’ Twitter account. His profile image is of a Jameis Winston toy… even after his so-called favorite team are in the freakin’ Super Bowl. Ridiculous.

  34. Bucsfanman Says:

    Great news! These are major cogs in that defense. It was clear when Whitehead went out and Winfield was sidelined.

  35. Mediation Sucks Says:

    After watching libtard media talking head haters on NFL Live and Around the Horn very confident that TB12 Will WIN!
    Sports writing / commentators who never sniffed competition on the the field are all on Kansas City…

  36. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Gorilla tape that shoulder in place and lots of cane!! He’ll have time to feel pain Monday morning!!

  37. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Why must you neonahtzee/facist/capitolinsurrectionsupporting morons always have to bring your foxnewsconsevative dribble up here???? Your libtard remark has nothing to do with football! If anyone brings up color this board goes ballistic like you all did with the Chris Carter story. I ain’t no liberal but I can’t stand the double standard up here!

  38. SlyPirate Says:

    Most NFL players never get a chance to play in a Super Bowl. Glad to hear.

  39. unbelievable Says:

    lol orlbucfan, you nailed it with Lavonte.

    @DavidBigBucFan99 – don’t even waste your time with the brainwashed and ignorant.

  40. TampaTown Says:

    Let’s remember Cris Carter brought up color in the Cris Carter story. Watch the video

  41. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    We’re gonna win this game. Most of the so called “experts” are picking the Chiefs. However, I would say both offenses are a wash, but our defense is significantly better than the Chiefs. Plus, the Chiefs are without their top offensive tackles and we have Mt. Vea back who was not there in the first matchup which the Chiefs barely won. Now, I understand, the Chiefs took their collective feet off the gas pedal because we were so far behind after a quarter. Bowles has learned since then!
    It may be a nailbiter, but we are a TEAM OF DESTINY!
    Where is Ndog? Where is Tmax? Where are the other trolls?

  42. Adrnagy Says:

    Good to see safety’s are ready to go but the backups are not that bad. Winfield and Davis are up for revenge. Got burned wk 12. I see big game from them. I wanna see dean on kelce.

  43. DaBux Says:


    People will be hit.

    Chiefs will cry.

  44. Jerry Says:

    Anyone questionable is going to play. It’s the Super Bowl.

    It’s actually pretty remarkable in itself that the Bucs are this healthy.

  45. SKBucsfan Says:

    I’m excited. Only 2 more sleeps.

  46. Blue coffee Says:

    I hope Todd B will put a second guy on Hill all night long,… and if we do it, we will win. Otherwise, we, the fans maniacs like me, will find the game very long! And please, press Kelce at the line of scrimmage or Pat Mahomes will dance in joy. We must slow him down a few seconds, because I prefer to see Pat Mahomes to have another type of dance behind his shaky O-Line trying to escape our rushers instead! Ha, ha, ha,…
    Good, our guys are back! Best news I have since,… well,… perhaps forever!
    I see Evans and Gronk having a big game.
    GO BUCS!

  47. Colonel Angus Says:

    I remember when Emmitt Smith played with a dislocated shoulder, had 32 carries for 168yds. Whitehead will be fine.

  48. tbbucs3 Says:

    Lets try to steer this comment section back into place before one goes off the rails again.

  49. Craig Says:

    Cool, if Brate makes it to the game I will be happy, in fact, I already am. The Bucs are playing a historic Stupor Bowl. Hot Damn.

  50. David Says:

    The fact that only Brate and Brown are listed as questionable, not even doubtful, but questionable, tells me everyone is playing and ready to go!

  51. David Says:

    I agree with Joe though, I hope LVD and Winfield have their speed.

  52. ItzOK Says:

    Everybody is suiting up even if they can only give 10 plays. Fck KC and Patty mahomes. Sick of hearing about that soft team. Bucs offense is just as good and the defense will stay aggressive.

  53. lambchop Says:

    Expect Antonio Brown to play in the SB. The advantage is that he doesn’t have to fly to the SB which will prevent any lingering swelling. I just hope Brate is not hampered by the back issue because he has been Mr. Dependable in the passing game and the Chiefs don’t cover TEs very well. I’m hoping Gronk makes a splash on the big stage as well.

    The Bucs, are looking pretty healthy and stout. Having Vita Vea back is a HUGE difference maker as well. If we keep everything in front, I expect the Bucs will pull this out.

  54. BobbyH Says:

    Hopefully Tanner Hudson can do the job for Brate. I think he’s pretty good catching the ball.
