Bruce Arians Says Kevin Minter Will Return From COVID On Sunday, Maybe Antonio Brown

September 27th, 2021

Yes, the Bucs have injury issues, and Bucco Bruce Arians provided little clarity today except for discussing a new injury.

Linebacker Kevin Minter will be back Sunday off the COVID list, Arians said, but he said Antonio Brown’s return from COVID agianst the Patriots is unclear. Joe sure hopes Brown is not or was not ill.

Arians revealed that Scotty Miller came out of the game with a significant turf toe injury.

No updates were offered for starting cornerback Jamel Dean, who left with a left knee injury.

    Better be looking for a veteran corner, my gut tells me Dean is going to be out awhile. You can’t depend on Brady to do everything. GM and Head Coach need get moving!

    It might be another 24 to 48 hours before we hear about Jamel Dean’s injury. That knee bent at a bad angle, in all probability there’s significant swelling which would prevent a clean MRI.

    In terms of Sean Murphy-Bunting, this wait is not good news.

  3. Robert Says:

    might want to get 2 CB’s at this point!

    Wouldn’t be surprised if pill-popping, Natty-Boh-binge-drinking, Rojo-peeved, Trask-bashing, meltdown-having @Medicated Pete was standing outside One Buc Palace advocating for Jason Licht to trade OJ and Rojo for a top-tier corner. I would second this decision. Get your popcorn ready. On to New England. #GoBucs

    We’re at the point of the season where you have two choices:

    1. Sign Richard Sherman and work him out thoroughly to see if there’s life in those wheels.

    2. Wait a few weeks, the upcoming opponents shouldn’t kill the Bucs with passing. Why wait? Because a number of teams after a few weeks will throw in the towel, coming to the realization that the playoffs are a pipe dream. When teams think rebuild they start valuing draft picks acquired via trade.

    It’s time to get a veteran corner. When deal was healthy this year he wasn’t very reliable. If they think they are winning a bunch of games with Delaney and cockrell starting then they are foolish and got lucky last year. They were suspect before dean and bunting got hurt

    Should have kept Herb Miller

    Guys. We led yesterday with yardage, passing yardage, first downs, etc, etc.
    The real difference was the refs.
    And I dont say that often. Meybe never before.
    They let The Rams get away with anything.
    Almost as if the NFL wanted the Rams, in their new stadium, in the Country’s second biggest market, to ignite their fanbase.
    Its not like the NFL has lost the LA market before!
    This week isnt how our team plays. While we need a couple CBs, we will still be in the hunt!
    Unless we let our stars get hurt in games that are over.

    Hopefully there will be some kind of pass rush against the Pats otherwise Mac Jones will do his best Justin Herbert impersonation.

    1 word cornerback

  11. Tim R. Says:

    You can not put all the blame on the secondary. There is not enough of a pass rush so it puts them in a hole. It is a definite that if we pressure the quarterback then the secondary has a chance to do better. The front four must pget near the quarterback so the blitz becomes effective.

  12. Tim R. Says:

    If the front four gets near the quarterback the blitz will become effective. Not giving the quarterback the time to overlook the entire field will make a huge difference for the secondary. The front four must get penetration!
