Bruce Arians Said He Will Have To Watch Practice Tape To Assess Sean Murphy-Bunting, Scotty Miller Availability

November 10th, 2021

Bucs coach Bucco Bruce Arians.

Yes, both starting cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting and reserve receiver Scotty Miller are in a 21-day window allows them to practice while the team decides whether it wants to activate them.

Each practiced today but Bucs Super Bowl-winning coach Bucco Bruce Arians advised folks to tap the brakes if they think both will play Sunday at Washington.

Arians isn’t ruling either out but suggested on Monday what he reiterated today: Practicing and playing a game are two different things.

“Running around is fine,” Arians said of the duo. “Playing football is a different thing. I have to watch the tape on Sean. He wasn’t using his arm on Monday.

“There is no rush to get them back out on the field.”

Of course, SMB dislocated his elbow in the first half of the Bucs’ season opener against Dallas. He hasn’t played since.

As for foot-rubbing, car-littering film guru tight end Rob Gronkowski and furniture-tossing, bicycle-throwing receiver Antonio Brown, Arians said he isn’t overly worried about those two yet. Both Brown and Gronk were seen working out on a side field this morning; Brown having shed the boot on his bad ankle.

“We have a long way to go,” Arians said of the nine regular season games left to get Brown and Gronk back to playing shape. “I’m not that worried.”

    It is a long season. Don’t rush Gronk back three times. Now we got Godwin injured. Sit him as well.

    A fine balance exists between going for home field, and having everyone healthy once the playoffs start. We went through this with gronk year after year. Do we go for a top spot, or shelve him. Ben doesn’t believe the bucs can win multiple road playoff games. Even if you spend gronk, Brady still has plenty. Ben would go for home field.

    For the guy that wants to rest everyone. They’ll be no post season if the players just keep resting. Look at JPP, he’s gonna play because the post season is not guaranteed. Ei. lost to saints. GO BUCS!
