Report: Bucs’ TE O.J. Howard to miss 2 to 4 weeks

Could have been worse.

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Chicago Bears Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

As if Tampa Bay needed anymore bad news.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the Buccaneers’ young tight end O.J. Howard may miss some time after suffering a knee injury in Sunday’s game in Chicago. The injury came just before halftime.

The timeframe isn’t bad, considering it could have been much worse. Regardless, his production will be missed.

Howard has been a crucial piece to the Bucs offense so far in 2018. He has 222 receiving yards through four games and has hauled in 11 receptions, one of them for a touchdown.
