Buccaneers HC Bruce Arians told reporters Friday that WR John Brown has looked good in practice and could be elevated from the practice squad for Sunday's game against the Rams. WRs Cyril Grayson (hamstring) and Breshad Perriman (hip/abdomen) are questionable for Sunday.
Smokey is back? Somewhere Matt Harmon is pounding an IPA for John Brown. His field-stretching abilities could give a weaker Rams secondary trouble.
Packers WR Randall Cobb (core muscle surgery) was activated from IR.
His return matters with Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back) doubtful for Saturday. Expect Cobb to run his routes closer to the line of scrimmage in his return with Allen Lazard stretching the field more in the MVS role.
Leonard Fournette is practicing and looks to be an option off IR this week, which means RoJo can sit out again and Bernard can be the receiving back. Perriman and Grayson not practicing thins an already small receiver room in Tampa that could see Mike Evans shadowed by Jalen Ramsey Sunday.
