Jamel Dean Gets The Dreaded Boot

December 14th, 2022

Joe’s experience says a guy putting on the dreaded stabilizing walking boot always misses two or three games.

Today, Buccaneers cornerback Jamel Dean, the best Bucs corner this season, is that guy.

Bucs Kickoff host and Joe’s buddy Rock Riley is patrolling practice today and delivered the news via the Twittering below. Dean was injured in Sunday’s game against the 49ers and an official report on his issue has yet to be given.

Riley added that Vea (calf) and was working with a trainer and Joe Tryon-Shoyinka (hip) isn’t in a wheelchair.

The Bucs really need Vea and Dean on the field if they’re going to have a prayer Sunday against the Bengals.

    Dean with a boot and Burrow coming to town not good.

  2. Mike Johnson Says:

    Bengals will give my Bucs their own special boot come Sunday.

  3. SufferingSince76 Says:

    Man, we have so many fragile players. How did they manage to make it this far?

  4. DungyDance Says:

    Can Ronde come back down from the booth?

  5. Statguy Says:

    I would of put a boot on after that play before halftime too

  6. SB~LV Says:

    Waiting for the coaching staff to get the boot
    I can’t wait to read TB’s book one day and see what he says about this season.

  7. TexasBucsFan Says:

    This week will be a complete disaster. Can’t wait until the coaches speak after the game on the players lack of discipline & execution..

  8. Jack Sparrow Says:

    Breaking News….. Toilet Bowles and Byron Leftnut are already preparing their post-game speech on why they lost against the Bengals….. hahahahaha

  9. Lokog Says:

    These players are weak mentally and physically wish hardy nickerson was still around

  10. MadMax Says:

    All good….we’re not winning anymore games anyway.

    When is bowles and byroooon gone? thats all i want to know Mr. Licht!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. HC Grover Says:

    Our strength and conditioning coach. She will have him in shape quick. OK Boys lets do aerobic dancing. She has been great all year. Ana 1 Ana 2…Yoo Hoo!

  12. Defense Rules Says:

    I was wondering why Dean only played 65% of the snaps, while Davis, Neal, Ryan, LVD & White all hit 100% (Jamel usually gets 100% of the snaps too). Now I know. Bummer.

  13. NEfan Says:

    Hurt himself running backwards when the receiver blew right by him Sunday. Highlight on GMFB this morning.

  14. NEfan Says:

    Next man down

  15. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    So……Dean, SMB, Edwards, Winfield are injured…….time to call up Richard Sherman or break out the bottle of cologne

  16. Mike Johnson Says:

    Don’t worry my fellow Plank walkers, we will get a chance to see what a TEAM looks like come Sunday. And a QB who can scamper if he has to. Might get ugly for us.

  17. Redeemer Says:

    They’re going to miss Dean next year. Someone will give him a boatload. Joe is right, he’s been their best corner. Hate to see him leave. I don’t think they’ll pay two DBs 13+ million. IMO they locked up the wrong guy.

  18. S04 Says:

    Some of you deserve this team
    Hope the GOAT leaves
    I will proudly wear my Tampa TB12 shirt win or lose this season
    You ass…. are all insults, demeaning comments

    F… you

  19. SPARKY Says:

    My high school coach always told us that you get hurt more when you play soft. That if you play hard and hit hard your body will protect it’s self by instinct. That explains our defensive injuries. As long as Dean has that boot on tell him to stick it up Bowles a$$.

  20. Defense Rules Says:

    I agree Redeemer. With Dean, SMB, Edwards, Ryan, Neal & yes Delaney all FAs after this season, we’ll be lucky to be able to lock down 2 of them. But hey, we have Davis & Winfield under contract so we good. Ya right.

  21. Thomas Edrington Says:

    Speaking of “The Boot” that is exactly what Todd Bowles should get — as in “Booted” out of the facility

  22. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Aiyuk broke Dean’s ankle.

  23. Bucfan1988 Says:

    Dean ain’t going nowhere after the season….
    Bucs will either Tag or Tender him to make sure they get something out of it in case he departs somewhere…

  24. Iamabuc Says:

    The strength and conditioning coaches need to be added to all the bad things that are going on on this team. Why so many injuries? Yes, they have to be held accountable too to this mess. Of course Bowles and Leftturd are the main culprits.
    Time to clean house.

  25. Manny Says:

    This is actually a pretty good team when healthy, or else we wouldnt have started 2-0, almost beating the packers and scoring 31 on the chiefs. We have slowly sunk because we are banged up on both sides of the ball on both sides of the ball. If we have a 100% healthy team than we are def a middle of the pack playoff team

  26. Rod Munch Says:

    The Bucs need Winfield out there if they’re to have any hope. He’s by far the best player on this defense, and the heart of the defense. When Winfield isn’t on the field, this defense completely falls apart.

  27. Miller5252 Says:

    This really sucks. Since Dean was put on an island and surrounded by 5th string nobody’s last year he has continued to get better. Last week wasn’t his best week, but he is by far the best corner the Bucs have. Hope he can play at a high rate because we’re gonna need him against Burrow. Plus they need to pay the man. He’s earned a good paycheck

  28. Eli Says:

    When will this team start building a younger. Less injury prone team? Old guys get hurt more often and for longer time out. We need to start over and stip the foot, ham and knee injurys.

  29. ClwJB Says:

    Can someone please tell him to turnaround and look for the ball rather than running with his back to the ball – he could easily have prevented the busted coverage TD if he would have turned around

    He and David do it a lot – play the ball not the man!!!!!!!

  31. Kentucky Buc Says:

    Eli. Wirfs Vea Winfield SMB Gage Dean . All young guys with injuries.

  32. ShadowBucc Says:

    I should be feeling worried, but at this point I’m numb too the pain.

  33. Rudy Says:

    Yo Joe, I thought by today you were gonna come tell us Toilet Bowles and Byron “run up the gut on first just one mo’ ginn” Leftwich were gonna get the other dreaded boot. What a disappointment. 😕

  34. Timothy Velasquez Says:

    The best corner , man were in trouble . He bites on to many routes he’s the best when everyone is healthy and can help him .

    My coach called this the Santa Claus principle. “It is better to give than to receive.”

  36. Hunter's Crack Pipe Says:

    Rock must have gotten himself in trouble with the Bucs. The tweet has been deleted.

  37. brooks Says:

    38- 10 who dey!!!!

    Tag would be nuts, unless you really believe that he is a top 5 or 10 corner. I think it’s more likely that he gets a long-term offer that can be back-loaded to help over the next couple of years. Of course, he may not agree with the team’s valuation.

  39. Ernest S Hunter Says:

    Stop complaining like middle schoolers. I want all you so called expert arm chair players to suit up. Geewiz what a bunch of sad toddlers you guys are. BUCS are my team and I’m sticking to it.

  40. Brandon Says:

    Funny. People still defending the Greatest Ego of All Time GEOAT. Sure, the dreadful offense is due partially to Leftwich. But what happened to giving Brady all the credit the previous two years? With Arians gone, you’d think it is even more of Brady’s offense… and it is. This horizontal Never Risk it, No Biscuits offense is the same checkdown machine Brady ran in New England. Between Brady’s desire to dink and dunk and Leftwich’s inability to call an effective game, this offense sucking comes as zero surprise.

  41. Brandon Says:

    For those idiots that don’t know. Jamel Dean is a top 5-10 CB and easily the best on our team.

  42. EA Says:

    I thought he was kicked off the team for a minute

  43. Purplepirate Says:

    I don’t blame him. I’d put on a boot too, lol.
