Heading into the final preseason game Saturday, two Buccaneers will not be playing.

On Friday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers today placed offensive linemen Nick Leverett and Earl Watford on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

This news comes after another player, kicker Ryan Succop, was placed on the same reserve list earlier this week. Titans head coach Mike Vrabel announced he had tested positive this past Sunday following joint practices and the game between both sides.

None of these cases are believed to be related.

Both Leverett and Watford can play anywhere across the offensive line. This will leave the Bucs unit thin for the preseason finale.

Tampa Bay is just under two weeks away before kicking off the season. Surely they hope to not have anymore cases as September 9 will be here before you know it.
