Buccaneers-Titans Injury Report Oct. 24: O.J. Howard Sidelined

The second injury report of Week Eight revealed tight end O.J. Howard was downgraded as he sat out Thursday’s practice entirely. 


There wasn't much change to the Bucs' injury report in the third practice of the week, counting Tuesday's bonus day, other than tight end O.J. Howard being held out of practice entirely after being limited on Wednesday.

Howard has struggled to get involved statistically this season, amassing just 176 receiving yards this season. But that could be due in part to how effective Howard has been as a blocker along with how much teams still game plan for him. It's no surprise given his size and talent. It helps out the offense as a whole when Howard is able to divert attention his way so while his impact may not show on the stat card, it's definitely felt on the field. Clarification on the severity of his hamstring injury will come in the next few days but the Bucs will definitely be hoping for good news.

Wide receiver Corey Davis returned to practice for the Titans and was a full participant after being held out Wednesday with an illness. A total of five players were upgraded to full participation for Tennessee while linebacker Sharif Finch was downgraded and did not practice.
