Bruce Arians addressed media today via zoom and was asked by Scott Reynolds of Pewter Report if there was any possibility that Carlton Davis could go this week, considering the shoulder injury Jamel Dean sustained in the Colts game in week 12.
“He had a real good week practice last week, and we will see how this [week] goes. He had a great workout before the game, so right now, I’m hoping he will be ready to roll.”
Davis suffered a quad strain injury vs. the Patriots in Week 4 and was placed on the Injured Reserve List on October 7th and was recently designated to return from I.R.. His return will bolster a depleted secondary that has been without the star cornerback for quite some time and recently got Sean Murphy-Bunting back.
Jamel Dean’s shoulder injury is a wait-and-see situation. Bruce Arians did offer some good news on Dean’s shoulder, stating that it’s a bruised shoulder, and there didn’t seem to be any structural damage.
Getting Carlton Davis back will certainly strengthen the Buccaneers’ secondary as the team heads into the final six-game stretch of the season.
