The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been playing well this season. They’ve had a lot of injuries, but they are still doing well. They will not be 100% on Sunday, but they will keep going strong.
Earlier today, Antonio Brown‘s status was announced. He is very good when he plays for Tampa Bay, but his injury in Week 6 has kept him from playing this week. On the yr, he has 418 receiving yards and four touchdowns which is the most on the team.🙌
Tom Brady is not the only top player that he will be without. Tight end Rob Gronkowski is out for his fourth game with a rib injury. He got this injury earlier in the season against LA.
