Bucs TE O.J. Howard’s MRI confirmed that he tore his Achilles, source said.
As the tweet said, this was expected. The former first-round TE is done for the season and the TE workload now falls on Gronk and Brate for the rest of the season. Gronk had one catch for 29 yards last week but did play on 85% of the snaps. Brate played on 21% of the snaps and caught his first ball of the year, which happened to be a TD.
