Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians has revealed that Antonio Brown will be out of action against the Chicago Bears in Week 7 on Sunday. The wingback experienced the 33-year-old with an ankle injury. According to a report from the NFL Network on Friday,
Brown suffered an ankle injury in the 28-22 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6, along with 33-year-old cornerback Richard Sherman with a muscle injury. In addition, the Buccaneers have no wing in Rob Gronkowski and linebacker Levonte David, who have rib and ankle injuries respectively.
Antonio Brown will miss out on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The 33-year-old has made an excellent start to the season. He received the ball more than 120 yards from two of his five games. And having made more than 400 yards. This season from just 29 receptions and four touchdowns. It has become another favorite of quarterback Tom Brady.
The status of outside linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul is to be determined. After he missed practice all week with shoulder and hand injuries.
On a positive note, Arians said that safety Antoine Winfield Jr.. He is who has missed the past two games after suffering a concussion in Week 4 at the New England Patriots, cleared the concussion protocol Thursday. And will be active Sunday, meaning the Bucs will have three of their original starting five defensive backs (Winfield Jr., Jordan Whitehead and Jamel Dean) playing Sunday.
A win Sunday would put the Bucs at 6-1. Which would be their best start in franchise history.
