Sean Murphy-Bunting Will Not Play Today: Lavonte David Will

January 16th, 2022

Cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting

Sean Murphy-Bunting’s bad hamstring was tested moments ago and it did not pass.

Inhale deeply. Here comes the bottle of cologne, Pierre Desir, to fill in at cornerback.

Iconic Bucs inside linebacker Lavonte David is active. Let’s hope his bad foot is good can withstand a whole game, or at least a hearty chunk of quality play.

    Tough but couldn’t get everyone back.
    David, JPP and Shaq will hopefully make the difference. Go Bucs!!!!

  2. SOEbuc Says:

    I will be putting on my white 54 as soon as I roll out of this hangover. I’ll take Desir over Cockrell all day.

  3. Capt.Tim Says:

    I said we would draft a CB in the second round, of last years draft.
    Totally blind sided by a weak armed QB.
    To repeat, a CB would be alot more useful today- instead of our inactive rookie QB.
    Desir has had some good games.
    And we have played without Murphy-Bunting, more times than we’ve had him.
    I just hope Carlton Davis can play the whole game.

    And we need to draft a CB in one of the first 3 rounds.
    And a WR. Worried how Godwin will come back, or if we can afford him

  4. SOEbuc Says:

    Anyone aware of jersey colors, today???

  5. Sorryjackchuckiesback Says:

    What about Dean

  6. DG060 Says:

    Tim u are exactly right! It was an asinine pick from Licht.

  7. Beeej Says:

    It’s not like we’re facing Rodgers (thankfully) and they only have 2 passing targets, beyond screens

  8. Cobraboy Says:

    @SOE: white/pewter

  9. Winny Testaverde Says:

    SOE: White jerseys/pewter pants…a winning combo!

    And I agree with Cpt. Tim…2nd round pick didn’t play a down and may never do so.

  10. HC Grover Says:

    Hoping JPP is good to go so we do not have to put in Plan 9.

  11. DoooshLaRue Says:

    This isn’t bad news.
    Lenny is bad news.

  12. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Not good. They better get a rush on the QB. Can’t be missing corners with this backfield.

  13. MadMax Says:

    This article and the article right behind it about Lenny is why I hope we land RB Brian Robinson Jr….and CB Alontae Taylor. I think we could trade down into the 2nd and then somehow get back up into the 2nd and snag both.

    Yeah I was laughed at by some when I wanted Big V and D. White, but ive got a pretty good track record over the last 5 years of promoting 🙂

  14. Cobraboy Says:

    If a CB has to miss a game, this is the game. Hurt is not a big passing threat, at least not like the rest of the NFC playoff field.

    I’d rather he and Foutnette get healthy for the stretch run…IF the Bucs can get past the Iggles.

    My #1 hope is that David is healthy, and playing will not damage his foot.

  15. timbucs2 Says:

    White top, pewter pants… looking like Ronde taking it to the house out there today hopefully!

  16. Oxycodoms Says:

    Windy game might not be a huge loss

  17. Coburn Says:

    No news on Davis is good news? Thought he was questionable with his back

  18. Coburn Says:

    CBS says Davis cleared

  19. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    We need to fire our strength trainer.

  20. David Says:


    Deans hobbling, SMB is not playing. JPP and LVD are definitely not 100%.
    Vaughn is the main running back. No Godwin.
    I still think they can blow the eagles out but holy crap !! will the injuries never end!?!?!!?

  21. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Why do people come here to post negative things like a loss before the game even start. Why don’t u go to the opposing team site and post. Geez!!!!

  22. BucsFan81 Says:

    Mike Edwards just needs to play SMB spot no need to use anyone else especially since Edwards can play CB and safety.

  23. Destinjohnny Says:

    Hurts can’t pass anyway
    No big loss in this game

  24. JimmyJack Says:

    Why no update on Davis?

  25. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I agree….Mike Edwards needs to be added to the mix…….Go with Dean, Davis, Whitehead, Winfield & Edwards……

    And, throw in Myron Lewis for good measure.

  26. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Hurts can’t pass yet this defense has made average to less than average QBs look great. This defense has to step up today big time! Have to.

  27. Sorryjackchuckiesback Says:

    Go to bleacher report…. They have a little bit of EVERYTHING … Dean will be playing, Barrett will have brace on… Any other questions you may have bleacher report has the answer… no offense to Joe buc …. Joe buc is an opinion place not really the stats place to go

  28. Swampbuc Says:


  29. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Better put that spy on hurts!!!! Run defense is crucial today.

  30. Coburn Says:

    This tells me all 3 of our good safeties need to stick around going forward. Edwards can play nickel corner..

  31. DG060 Says:

    SMB is a bum.

  32. unbelievable Says:

    The secondary balled out today.

    By far the best they’ve looked when one of their starting 6 (Davis, Dean, SMB, Winfield, Whitehead, Edwards) was not available.
