Tom Crabtree Injury: Buccaneers tight end is out for Cardinals game

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers continue to struggle to find production at tight end.

Tom Crabtree will miss the fourth game of the season, as Greg Schiano announced today that the tight end is out for Sunday's matchup between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Arizona Cardinals. Crabtree has yet to make his debut for the Bucs after suffering a high ankle sprain in preseason. With a bye week coming up after the Cardinals, Crabtree should be ready for the week six matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Bucs have struggled to attack the middle of the field without Crabtree, as they lack any competent pass-catching tight end. With Mike Glennon making his debut, the Buccaneers could use every offensive weapon they have.

Meanwhile, Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams practiced on a limited basis today, and they will be listed as Questionable for Sunday. Williams is almost certain to play, while Jackson will be more of a game time decision. If either of those two can't go, the entire Buccaneers offense will be severely limited on Sunday.

Fantasy angle: None of the Bucs receivers are particularly appealing starts against the Arizona Cardinals defense with a rookie quarterback in his first start throwing to them, and both receivers likely limited by injuries.
