    Shouldn’t Winfield have cleared concussion protocol by now joe?

  2. David Says:

    David, Winfield, SMB, Davis….

    Keep winning while everyone gets healthy, it’s going to pay off with serious depth and experience down the stretch

  3. VSyl Says:

    In fact, i’m kinda satisfied they are not rushing Gronk’s return.

  4. Bucfan81 Says:

    Hopefully we can win with so many people out. I think this game will be pretty close like the patriots game.

  5. orlbucfan Says:

    Big loss is LVD and Winfield. Brady sure acted like he didn’t miss Gronkowski Sunday.

  6. crazyBucs_CL Says:

    Three great players, keep them out till bye week. we should do it without them the remaining three games.

  7. SB~LV Says:

    Wish they were healthy enough to play
    But glad that they will now have 11 more days of healing.
    All should be close by then.

  8. D-Rome Says:

    I agree VSyl. The Bucs will be a playoff team. This team needs Gronk more after week 18 than for week 6.

  9. Bird Says:

    Remember ali marpet missed 3 games with concussion last year
    it takes time with some people.

  10. SlyPirate Says:

    I’d add JPP to this list. He wasn’t himself against Miami.

  11. Buc king Says:

    We need the back for the dirty saints

  12. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Save Gronk, don’t know about Winfield, Jensen that’s fing awesome and LVD, that hurts with a running QB. Next man up.

  13. Beeej Says:

    I don’t think there’s much distance talent-wise between Winfield Whitehead and Edwards

    All I did was trip and hit my head on the ground and I had post concussion syndrome for 6 months or more. There is no real correlation to how bad a concussion is and how long the symptoms last.

  16. lambchop Says:

    Gronk had fractured ribs and had a punctured lung, correct? We are fine with him healing up. 100% or nothing.

    I’m concerned about Winfield, but we’re good at safety, so they’re probably taking it easy with him. No need getting him back at 70% when we can wait for 100%.

    It’s a luxury to not have to push guys back onto the field.

  17. Coburn Says:

    Was doing some respect for sport course and they were talking concussiona. Was pretty sure they said resting 1-2 weeks was normal before starting to work back into your sport. Of course these guys also try to rush guys back in. Still think they vent the rules for mahommes in the playoffs, but it all worked out

  18. Ludicrous Speed Says:

    When they announced Gronk’s injury and that he wouldn’t play against the Pats, I thought at that time that they should just put him on IR, because he could miss two more games including this short week. But instead we didn’t and let go of Khalil Davis, our 6th round pick from last year in order to, as reported, keep Gronk on the roster. Davis turned out to be a hot commodity, with Indy claiming him right away… with Pittsburgh, Tennessee and the Chargers also attempting to claim him. All pretty good teams. So why didn’t we keep him and put Gronk on IR? At the time it seemed the logical thing to do. Now we’re down some DT depth that other teams coveted.

    Joe, can you please tell me what I’m missing re this?

    I’ve gotta agree here, especially given the age we have on our D-line. They may wish to have that decision back in the next couple of seasons.
