The breakout season for Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate has come to an end. The Bucs announced Tuesday afternoon that he has been placed on injured reserve.
Brate suffered a back injury late in the third quarter of Saturday's game against the New Orleans Saints. He walked off the field very slowly and kept grabbing his lower back region on the sideline. He had originally been announced as "questionable" to return, but was then downgraded to "doubtful" and never re-entered the game.

Brate finishes his season with 57 catches for 660 yards. His eight touchdown catches are currently the most in the league among tight ends and are second on the Bucs behind Mike Evans. Myers should see an increased workload with Brate out.

Week 17 vs. Carolina
Brandon Myers will replace Cameron Brate at tight end this week. He's a hard player to trust considering he has just seven receptions on the season. He had a big year in 2009 with the Raiders, but that was many seasons ago. Don't expect Myers to continue Brate's success.
