Buccaneers’ TE OJ Howard, listed as questionable with a knee injury for Sunday, is expected to play vs. the Falcons, per source.
This is a bit of a surprise, unless you saw that Howard was a full practice participant Friday. He was expected to miss 2-4 weeks with a knee injury, but the bye week came at the right time for Howard. This deceases Cameron Brate's Week 6 volume and reliability as a TE1, likely making him touchdown dependent. Brate has scored in his past two games but has not seen more than four targets in any game.
