Bucs TE O.J. Howard has been setback-free so far in his recovery from October's torn Achilles, HC Bruce Arians said Tuesday. Arians added that Howard is "real close" to getting back to pre-injury form, although that seems optimistic for an injury that often takes a year-plus to return from. It does sound like he has a good chance to be ready for the start of the 2021 campaign. It's worth remembering that Howard out-targeted TE Rob Gronkowski 19 to 14 over the first 4 games of last season.
Bucs TE O.J. Howard will miss the rest of the season with his Achilles injury, according to NFL Network's James Palmer. Howard had been playing a significant role, tallying 19 targets through 4 games. His absence should mean more action for TEs Rob Gronkowski and Cameron Brate, plus Tampa's WRs.
Bucs TE O.J. Howard suffered an Achilles injury in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Chargers. He was carted to the locker room and quickly ruled out. That doesn't bode well. We'll update Howard's status when we know more.
Bucs WRs Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Scott Miller all missed practice on Tuesday with their hamstring injuries. None of them are likely to play against the Texans on Saturday afternoon. That'll leave Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson as Tampa's top 2 WRs. TE O.J. Howard should also fend for the team lead in targets.
Bucs WR Chris Godwin (hamstring) isn't expected to play against the Texans on Saturday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. With Mike Evans and Scott Miller also likely out with their hamstring injuries, Tampa will be down to Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson atop the WR depth chart. Perriman will be a locked-in fantasy starter (we never thought we'd say that!), while Watson will be a deep-league consideration. TE O.J. Howard will also be a strong Week 16 target bet.
Bucs TE O.J. Howard (ankle) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. Ditto for TE Cameron Brate (ribs), who should be back to his usual role after being limited to 11 snaps last week. Howard is the ultimate risk/reward Week 10 fantasy play against the Cardinals’ 32nd-ranked TE defense.
Bucs TE O.J. Howard (knee) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. He's a week-and-a-half removed from spraining his MCL, which was reportedly a 2-4 week injury. We'd still consider Howard no better than 50/50 to play against the Falcons on Sunday, but we'll get another update tomorrow.
Bucs TE O.J. Howard has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL and is expected to miss 2-4 weeks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's the same injury and timetable as Giants TE Evan Engram. The good news for Howard is that Tampa has a Week 5 bye, so it's possible that he only misses 1 game. He's worth hanging on to in most leagues considering the dearth of fantasy-viable TEs. Between Howard's injury and the return of QB Jameis Winston, TE Cameron Brate's stock is trending up.
Bucs TE O.J. Howard injured his knee in Sunday's loss to the Bears, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The team doesn't believe it's serious, but Howard will undergo an MRI on Monday. Tampa has a well-timed Week 5 bye. We'll update Howard's status when we learn more.
The Bucs have placed TE O.J. Howard (foot) on IR. We'll look for details on the injury, but it shouldn't impact his 2018 offseason. Howard's absence leaves Cameron Brate as Tampa's lead TE -- and a low-end spot starter for Week 16.
