WR - TB - PUP
Week 3 Outlook
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Tampa Bay has placed WR Justin Watson on the PUP list.
Buccaneers’ WR Justin Watson is expected to miss about four months after undergoing a surgical procedure on his knee. Battling for playing time as the team's WR4 with Scotty Miller and Tyler Johnson was never going to be easy, now it'll be near impossible. After having just seven receptions last time Watson should be avoided in all formats.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Justin Watson has been ruled out for the team's Thursday night game against the Chicago Bears.
Watson had played heavy snaps for the Buccaneers with the team dealing with injuries at the position, so rookie Tyler Johnson could see a significant increase in snaps with Chris Godwin also ruled out. The Buccaneers will still likely use a lot of 12 personnel looks due to Cameron Brate being a starting-caliber tight end. Tom Brady will not lack for weapons despite the massive injury report.
Buccaneers WR Justin Watson caught 4-of-6 targets for 40 yards in Sunday's Week 4 win over the Chargers.
With Chris Godwin sidelined, Watson saw expanded playing time, but only compiled 40 yards on four receptions. Once Godwin returns, Watson will regress tot he WR4 spot.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Justin Watson returned to practice on Wednesday.
Watson missed Week 3's contest with a shoulder injury but appears to be on track to play in Week 4 against the Chargers. With Scotty Miller missing Wednesday's practice, Watson may be elevated to number two receiver duties if Miller is ultimately ruled out.
WR Justin Watson (shoulder) will not play Sunday's Week 3 contest against the Broncos.
Watson missed practice on Thursday due to a shoulder injury. He did not practice all week and has been ruled for Sunday's game. Look for Tyler Johnson to see an expanded role as the Buccaneers' WR4 while Watson is sidelined.
