The Bucs have placed FB B.j. Askew on the non-football injury list a week after he was involved in what the team called a minor car accident. Askew will remain there for the duration of the season.
Based on additional information we've learned, it turns out Askew's accident, in which he was rear-ended, was worse than originally known. As a result, Askew has been dealing with neck and back pain that is not improving, causing the team to make today's roster move. In fact, the car he was driving sustained significant damage and may have been a total loss. Askew should recover in the long term, but as of now, he's not in any shape to play football.
