The NFL has suspended Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown 3 games -- along with teammate S Mike Edwards -- for misrepresenting their vaccination status in the league's COVID protocols, according to multiple reports. This, of course, follows what had been dismissed as rumors of Brown acquiring a fake vaccination card. Brown was already expected to miss at least 2 more games with his ankle injury, so there's no big fantasy impact here.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Bucs WR Antonio Brown (ankle) is expected to miss "at least" the next 2 games vs. the Falcons and Bills. Schefter doesn't mention a setback for Brown, but it sure seems like he suffered one. Regardless, Week 15 is the earliest fantasy owners might get Brown back. He's still worth stashing on benches as a potential difference-maker in the fantasy playoffs.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (ankle) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. HC Bruce Arians said afterward that Brown "probably" won't play vs. the Falcons this weekend. It's disappointing news after Arians said last week that he was "hopeful" to get Brown back for this one. Brown should stay stashed on fantasy benches as we continue to monitor his rehab. His absence is good news for Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Rob Gronkowski.

Bucs HC Bruce Arians said Wednesday that he's "hopeful" to get WR Antonio Brown (ankle) back for Week 13. “He’s moving around a lot better," Arians said. "He’s able to put more weight on the heel and bounce around on it some. We’ve got our fingers crossed.” Brown will miss Sunday's game vs. the Colts. We'll monitor his progress leading up to Week 13's meeting with the Falcons.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. Fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him in Week 12 lineups.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (ankle) is out for Monday night's game vs. the Giants. While he was spotted on the practice field this week, he officially missed all 3 workouts. We'll see if Brown can make it back for Week 12.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (ankle) officially did not participate in Thursday's practice. Beat writers caught him out on the field catching passes before practice started, though. Brown seems to be getting close to a return, but fantasy owners shouldn't be expecting him to play vs. the Giants on Monday night.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (ankle) is out for Sunday's game vs. Washington. He at least shed his walking boot this week, but Brown's timetable for return remains uncertain.

As expected, Bucs WR Antonio Brown (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. He's not expected to play vs. Washington this weekend, although he did reportedly shed his walking boot on Wednesday.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (ankle) remains in a walking boot, HC Bruce Arians said Monday. Arians also suggested that Brown is not expected back for this weekend's game vs. Washington. We'll keep an eye on him this week, but fantasy owners shouldn't plan on using him in Week 10.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (ankle) will "likely" be back for Week 10, following the Week 9 bye, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's good news after HC Bruce Arians was non-committal on Brown's return earlier this week. We'll keep an eye on him when Tampa gets back to work after the bye.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (ankle) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Saints. HC Bruce Arians suggested earlier this week that Brown isn't a lock to be ready after the Week 9 bye. His absence is good news for WRs Chris Godwin and Mike Evans. Tyler Johnson will operate as the #3 WR but would be a fantasy flier.

Bucs HC Bruce Arians said Wednesday that WR Antonio Brown's ankle injury could be "long term," according to The Athletic's Greg Auman. Brown is dealing with an ankle sprain near his heel, Arians said, and isn't a lock to be back after the Week 9 bye. We'll continue looking for more details on Brown's situation but would keep him stashed on fantasy rosters.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (ankle) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. The Athletic's Greg Auman spotted Brown with a crutch.

With Brown out last week, WR Chris Godwin saw 11 targets and WR Mike Evans 10.
