Shaquil Barrett confirmed to have suffered a torn Achilles

MRI confirmed that Bucs' LB Shaq Barrett suffered a torn Achilles last night and will be out the next 7-9 months.

Fantasy Impact

This was the fear per Todd Bowles following Thursday's game against the Ravens. This is a huge blow to the Buccaneers defense. Barring any setbacks, he could be ready right around training camp next offseason though Achilles injuries can be tougher to return from.

Shaq Barrett (knee) practices on Thursday for Buccaneers

Per Greg Auman of The Athletic, LB Shaq Barrett (knee) was practicing with a brace on Thursday for the Bucs.

Fantasy Impact

Barrett suffered a knee injury late in the year but looks to have a chance to make a return as the Bucs get ready to face the Eagles in the playoffs. Barrett is one of the veteran defensive leaders for Tampa and his return would be very welcomed considering the challenges a dual threat QB like Jalen Hurts presents for opposing defenses.

Fantasy Impact

Shaquil Barrett activated from reserve/COVID-19 list

The Bucs activated LB Shaquil Barrett from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Fantasy Impact

However, Devin White remains on the list for now. Barrett should be back for Saturday's Wild Card game against Washington this weekend, which will provide a boost to Tampa Bay's defense.

Shaq Barrett (COVID-19) placed on Reserve/COVID-19 list

Buccaneers LB Shaq Barrett (COVID-19) was placed on the league's Reserve/COVID-19 list on Friday and will miss the regular season finale against the Falcons in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Barrett lead the league in sacks with 19.5 in 2019 and has continued being an impact player on the defensive side of the ball, accounting for 40 quarterback pressures and eight sacks this season. In Barrett's absence, the Bucs will rely on Anthony Nelson and Cam Gill against a streaky but explosive Falcons offense in Week 17.
