Tampa, FL — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers gave out some bad news on Friday when they announced that linebacker Shaquil Barrett will not be playing in the season Finale versus the Carolina Panthers. Instead, he has tested positive for COVID-19 and will go to the Reserve/ COVID-19 list.
Fortunately, Barrett was likely to miss the game anyway with a knee injury, so having him on the COVID-19 list changes nothing. He should be ready to go for a return for the Playoffs.; knee willing.
