Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard (torn Achilles') was placed on season-ending injured reserve.
Howard will spend the entire offseason recovering for his contract year in 2021. It's his fifth-year team option season, which is guaranteed for injury only, and a torn Achilles' tendon will certainly qualify. Howard was showing signs of life, reaching 36 yards in 3-of-4 games with Tom Brady, but will ultimately be replaced by Rob Gronkowski and Cameron Brate down the stretch. Gronk is an appealing streamer after playing 90% of the team's snaps in the last two games. We know all about Howard's big-play upside, but he has rarely been allowed to reach it under coach Bruce Arians. No longer a young pup, Howard turns 26 in November. His career is starting to look like a "what might have been." Oct 06 10:44 am (EST)
