Tampa Bay Buccaneers Vs Las Vegas Raiders Game Day Preview

Bucs vs. Raiders, Week 7 2020 Game Preview

The trip to Las Vegas was to begin a stretch of three consecutive prime-time games for Tampa Bay. However, the NFL moved Sunday’s game out of the prime-time slot due to an outbreak of COVID-19 on the Raiders.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Twitter was buzzing on Wednesday morning when news broke that both Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski weren’t practicing for the NFC South leading Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

But head coach Bruce Arians made it clear afterward there was nothing for Bucs’ fans to fear heading into Sunday night’s game at Las Vegas.

“Yeah, it’s just a vet day,” Arians said. “(Brady) and Gronk both. It’s just that time of year that we just need to rest them up.”

The 43-year-old Brady was not sacked during Tampa Bay’s 38-10 drubbing of Green Bay on Sunday when he completed 17 of 27 passes for 166 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. Gronkowski, who has a shoulder injury, caught five passes for 78 yards, including his first touchdown reception for the Bucs.

Right tackle Trent Brown, who practiced Monday after the team returned from its bye week, tested positive for COVID-19, and Las Vegas head coach Jon Gruden said the rest of the starting offensive line — left tackle Kolton Miller, left guard Denzelle Good, center Rodney Hudson and right guard Gabe Jackson — as well as starting safety Johnathan Abram, were all sent home as part of contact tracing.

“I guess they were around Trent,” Gruden said. “I can’t get into things any more than that. But hopefully we’ll get some players back (Thursday), or for Sunday.”

The NFL mandates a five-day isolation and negative PCR tests each day after contact with a COVID-19 positive individual before returning to the club facility.

The other offensive linemen on the 53-man roster include tackles Sam Young and Brandon Parker, guards John Simpson and Patrick Omameh and center Andre James.

“We’re listening to the league and they’re advising us on what to do,” Gruden said. “We used other linemen and adjusted practice. We’ll have five (offensive linemen) on Sunday. We’ll be ready to go.”
