The Tampa Bay Buccaneers continue to get more and more dinged up in every single game they play.
Having already lost center Joe Hawley, defensive end Howard Jones and linebacker Kwon Alexander during the course of the game against the Atlanta Falcons, the Bucs finished Thursday Night Football without quarterback Jameis Winston and star wide receiver Mike Evans.
Winston suffered what appeared to be an ankle injury on a vicious hit on a late two-point attempt, when the game was already out of reach. The injury kept him out for the rest of the game, though it didn’t look overly serious.
Meanwhile, Mike Evans was evaluated for a concussion after a helmet-to-helmet hit on one of the best catches of the year. The Bucs only took him to the locker room after a few more catches, though. He finished the game with 11 catches for 150 yards and two touchdowns.
With a long week before the team’s next game, the Bucs at least have a little extra time to allow these players to get fully healthy.
