Sean Murphy-Bunting Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Titans DT Jeffery Simmons (knee) will miss his third straight game Sunday against the Seahawks. That's a big blow to a run defense that struggled without him the past two weeks. Tennessee allowed 148 rushing yards to Houston and 158 to Miami the game before. The matchup certainly improves for Seattle RB Kenneth Walker III. Tennessee has also ruled out S Amani Hooker (knee), S K'Von Wallace (quad), LB Jack Gibbens (back), and CB Sean Murphy-Bunting (hip). It could be a nice week for the entire Seattle offense.

The Buccaneers might get safeties Antoine Winfield Jr. and Mike Edwards back Sunday against the Bengals. Both are questionable after missing the past 2 games. Edwards (hamstring) put in full practices Thursday and Friday. Winfield (ankle) remained limited all 3 days. We'll see about their statuses Sunday. Tampa Bay ruled DT Vita Vea (calf), CB Jamel Dean (toe) and EDGE Carl Nassib (pectoral) out for the game. CB Sean Murphy-Bunting (quad) is questionable after putting in full practices every day. EDGE Joe Tryon-Shoyinka (hip) is also questionable after finishing the week with full participation Friday. We'll update all questionable defenders Sunday.

Buccaneers S Antoine Winfield Jr. (foot) is active for today's game against the Jets, marking his return from 2 games down with a foot injury. CBs Jamel Dean and Sean Murphy-Bunting are also active, after arriving questionable.

The Buccaneers placed CB Sean Murphy-Bunting on IR Monday with a dislocated right elbow. He suffered the injury in Thursday's win over the Cowboys. Murphy-Bunting starts on the outside and moves to the slot in nickel situations. Losing him in the latter role figures to have the greatest impact on the Tampa defense, though Ross Cockrell rated well in coverage last season and could mitigate that effect. It's not yet clear when the Bucs hope to get Murphy-Bunting back.

Buccaneers CB Sean Murphy-Bunting suffered an elbow injury in the 1st half of Thursday night's opener against the Cowboys. The team ruled him out for the game. We'll see how much longer he remains out.
