Ankle Injury For O.J. Howard

October 20th, 2021

O.J. Howard

Tight end O.J. Howard didn’t practice today, and now we know why, courtesy of the official NFL injury report.

Howard has a bad ankle, likely injured against the Eagles on Thursday night.

Joe is not a doctor, but Joe certainly hopes the bad ankle isn’t attached to the Achilles that Howard had surgically repaired 12 months ago.

    Im sure everybodies going to freak out about this but I will save my meltdown for when he actually misses a game. Guys miss practice all the time and still get on the field and contribute.

    Given his history it doesnt sound good but I arent jumping to conclusions.

    Shocking. The China Doll is injured again.

  3. SOEbuc Says:

    Where’s Tanner Hudson when you need him?

  4. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    Let’s all HOPE he is ready to go against the Bears. With Gronk out, we need him.

  5. Gbobucsfan Says:

    Khalil Mack sat out practice today as well.

  6. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Can we trade OJ for a dozen oysters?

  7. Medicated Pete Says:

    Bucs barely squeak by vs Bears. Stone cold lead pipe lock.

    My Wife read me the riot act and I got a sprained ear. She did not allow me to go on the PUP list either. Oh and by the way…..OJ Howard IS NOT TRADEABLE!!!!!!

  9. DoooshLaRue Says:

    I said it during the Eagles game thread……”careful OJ, you’re gonna get hurt”….. you know, because you’re actually playing in a football game.
    Dude is too fragile.

    Dang. First time ever I open JBF and drop my phone 1 second later. This guy can’t catch a break.

  11. HeyItsAdam Says:

    You can set your clock to it….

    As soon as he has a game where he shows a LEEEEEEEETLE bit of skill….. God smites him from above…. “Not so fast #80…. There’s a lot more disappointment in that Bucs Jersey Number…..” ⚡️

    I knew I saw.him limp after the 4th & 2, probably twisted it cutting. Next man up.

  13. DaBux Says:

    This guy gets injured more than me falling off barstools.

  14. dmatt Says:

    I’m not a bit surprised! After 5 yrs of dropped pass, missed blocked, got beast mode on block, fumble, stumble, injury, passive, soft, are all synonymous with the name OJHoward. Enough is enough, put Deon Yelder n and let’s see what he can do.

  15. SB Says:

    I get it JimmyJack, however, the meltdown is entirely credible based on his fragile health.

  16. carzyBucs_CL Says:

    release him; so we can breath. can’t trade him no more…. just let him go so you can get a player that can play. quality is irrelevant at this point. we need bodies.

  17. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Vita can play two ways now. Put the big fella in at TE.

  18. Jerry Says:

    So we may not have Gronk, OJ, or AB.
    Seems the injuries are starting to accumulate on the offensive side of the ball now.

    Not good.

  19. Hoops Says:

    Thank god we got Cam Brate.

  20. Pelsbuc61 Says:

    Dude is a potato chip.

  21. DoooshLaRue Says:


    Not to worry. We were super loaded and now we’re merely loaded.
    ME, Godwin, Brate, Johnson.

  22. HC Grover Says:

    The Thing that would not leave.

  23. SoberInYbor Says:

    Of course.

  24. Reddington Neck Shores Says:

    Y’all crazy. His ankle is sore leading up to a game. He looked good last week. Dont trash production. He earned those balls. Brady finds you if you are open. Everyone knows that. Ask AB, and ME if he doesn’t step up his game a notch.

  25. allbuccedup Says:

    What else is new?

  26. Hodad Says:

    The Bucs have a TE on the PS, if he gets called up it’s bad news for Howard.

  27. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Look for a.big dose of Gio. No blocking TE, not good for Brady or Lenny.

  28. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Sometimes I think the guy gets injured so that we can’t see if he is worth keeping.

  29. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Gronk will be back soon.

  30. Wild Bill Says:

    OJ is totally jinxed. Bucs need to hire a Shaman and hold some mystical ceremonies to expell the evil demons residing in OJ.

  31. Marine Buc Says:

    Wow – what a shock!

    Not really… Like I said yesterday – I hope we don’t waste too much salary cap dollars on this guy next year.

    Cut her loose…
