Jan 3 2018 - T.J. Ward
  S T.J. Ward, 31, two months from being an unrestricted free agent, was arrested at his Tampa apartment on Wednesday on an outstanding warrant relating to a previous (and unreported) arrest. Ward was booked and released on $2,500 bond at 11:46 a.m.


Jan 3 2018 - T.J. Ward
  S T.J. Ward was arrested on Wednesday morning for possession of marijuana. Ward was arrested in Tampa (Fla.) at 8:11 a.m. and charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Department.


Jan 3 2018 - Chris Godwin
  WR Chris Godwin captured NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors after his 39-yard touchdown reception with nine seconds left lifted his team to a 31-24 triumph over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.


Jan 1 2018 - Mike Evans
  WR Mike Evans reached 1,000 receiving yards for the fourth straight season. With 55 receiving yards, Evans joins Randy Moss and Bengals receiver A.J. Green as the only receivers in NFL history to reach 1,000 yards in each of their first four seasons.


Jan 1 2018 - Brent Grimes
  CB Brent Grimes will be a free agent and said he hasn't decided whether to play or retire. But the Bucs made it clear to him Monday they would like him back in Tampa Bay next season. "It was fun. It's tough to say that because we were losing, but this is a tight group," said Grimes, who tied for the team lead with three interceptions. "People are really cool. We have fun. We wish the record could say otherwise, but we have fun playing together." What might it cost the Bucs as he finishes a two-year, $16 million deal?


Jan 1 2018 - Gerald McCoy
  DT Gerald McCoy came into the game leading Tampa Bay with six sacks. He did not record any sacks on Sunday, but did have two tackles for loss.


Jan 1 2018 - Robert Ayers
  DE Robert Ayers (shoulder) did not play Sunday.


Jan 1 2018 - DeSean Jackson
  WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) did not play Sunday.

Jan 1 2018 - Jameis Winston
  QB Jameis Winston tossed a 39-yard touchdown pass to rookie wide receiver Chris Godwin with nine seconds remaining -- capping a desperation 95-yard drive with no timeouts -- to produce a 31-24 victory over the Saints on Sunday at Raymond James Stadium. Winston (28 of 51 for 363 yards) gained a measure of redemption after throwing three critical interceptions earlier in the game.


Dec 31 2017 - Robert Ayers
  For the second straight week, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are without defensive end Robert Ayers. Ayers (shoulder) was among Tampa Bay's inactives for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints at Raymond James Stadium. Will Clarke replaced Ayers.

Dec 28 2017 - DeSean Jackson
  WR DeSean Jackson had a vehicle registered in his name involved in a single-car crash on Christmas Eve, with a search of the Chevy Silverado turning up marijuana and hollow-point bullets. Per the police report, officers responded to a crash near the International Mall on West Shore Blvd. in Tampa, approximately three miles from the team facility. They found an abandoned Chevy Silverado that had left the road and crashed into a tree, with police finding 6.3 grams of marijuana and two .38 caliber hollow-point bullets, which are legal in Florida.

  WR DeSean Jackson missed Sunday's game with a foot injury and his status against the Saints is unknown.


Dec 26 2017 - Mike Evans
  WR Mike Evans needs 54 yards receiving Sunday against New Orleans to give him 1,000 yards for each of his first four seasons, joining Randy Moss and A.J. Green as the only NFL players to accomplish that.


Dec 24 2017 - Evan Smith
  RG Evan Smith drew the start for Tampa Bay, filling the spot held by OL J.R. Sweezy, who was one of five Buccaneers to go on injured reserve during the past week.


Dec 21 2017 - Gerald McCoy

Dec 21 2017 - Robert Ayers

  WR DeSean Jackson has an ankle injury and did not practice again on Thursday.


Dec 21 2017 - Jameis Winston
  QB Jameis Winston, over the past three weeks, is tied for the most touchdown passes (7) in the NFL and ranks second in passer rating (109.0), while ranking in the top 10 in passing yards, completion percentage and yards per attempt during that time.


Dec 20 2017 - Gerald McCoy
  DT Gerald McCoy was named to his sixth consecutive Pro Bowl, the only Bucs player voted to the team this year. "We all have our own personal goals," McCoy said. "It's rare you ever hear me talk about mine. I have a great mentor, another defensive lineman that played here that I talk to on a regular basis. He did seven, so I have something to chase. I just try to give this city, this team, this organization everything I have year in and year out." McCoy, who missed Monday's 24-21 loss to Atlanta with a biceps injury, leads the Bucs with five sacks, has 29 tackles and is recognized across the NFL as one of the most disruptive players at his position. McCoy said he was challenged by Bucs Hall of Fame defensive tackle Warren Sapp - the aforementioned seven-time Pro Bowl player - to try to match the greats of the game after he reached his first Pro Bowl in 2012. "It was after the first Pro Bowl. Ninety-nine called me and it was like, 'Congratulations on one, what are you going to do now?'" McCoy said of Sapp. "He said, 'Now it's time to stack them.' When he said that, it meant something to me. It was then he told me to chase the ghosts of the game ... who better to chase than a guy in the Ring of Honor and with a gold jacket."


Dec 20 2017 - Vernon Hargreaves III
  CB Vernon Hargreaves, the Bucs' first-round pick in 2016, was placed on injured reserve, which means he ends up missing the final seven games of the season. He was relegated from being a starting outside corner to playing inside as the slot corner, and finished the year without an interception after getting one as a rookie. "It's football. You struggle," Hargreaves said of his play this season. "I'm sure I'm going to struggle again at some point in my career. But I learned a lot, started playing better towards the end. I'm proud of that and I'm building on that."


Dec 20 2017 - Chris Godwin
  WR Chris Godwin has had a solid rookie year, but it has been hard to get on the field on offense. The second-round pick from Penn State will see a lot of action this week as WR DeSean Jackson has a foot injury. Godwin eventually will be the bookend wideout to Mike Evans. He has 24 catches for 316 yards and no touchdowns.


Dec 20 2017 - DeSean Jackson
  WR DeSean Jackson did not practice Wednesday. He has a foot injury he suffered Monday night against the Falcons.

Dec 20 2017 - Cameron Brate
  TE Cameron Brate has hip and knee injuries and was limited in practice Wednesday. But if he is able to play Sunday at Carolina, he could have a big day. TE O.J. Howard has been placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury. WR DeSean Jackson has a foot injury and may not play. That leaves Brate as a primary target for QB Jameis Winston, especially in the red zone where teams typically double Mike Evans. Brate has six touchdown receptions, tied for the team lead with Howard.


Dec 20 2017 - Lavonte David
  LB Lavonte David has a hamstring injury and did not play against the Falcons but was limited in practice Wednesday.
