Bucs lose TE O.J. Howard to ankle injury

Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie tight end O.J. Howard suffered an ankle injury in the team's 24-21 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night and did not return.

Howard had a 30-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown in the first quarter, the Bucs' only score in the first half.

Howard's status for Week 16 is certainly in question at this point, as reports say he was in a walking boot following the game.
