Buccaneers K Ryan Succop tests positive for COVID-19

Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker Ryan Succop tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday, head coach Bruce Arians confirmed.

Succop, who is vaccinated, will miss Saturday’s preseason finale against the host Houston Texans.

Arians said that Succop had attended an indoor dinner with friends from the Tennessee Titans. The Bucs and Titans held joint practices last week and met in preseason action on Saturday, with Tennessee winning 34-3.

Succop, 34, spent time on the reserve/COVID-19 list last December in his first season with Tampa Bay.

In March, he signed a three-year, $12 million contract to return to the defending champions.

Succop made 28 of 31 field-goal attempts and 52 of 57 extra points during the 2020 regular season. He converted all nine field goals and 12 of 13 PATs in the postseason, including a 52-yard field goal against the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV.

In 182 career games with the Kansas City Chiefs (2009-13), Titans (2014-19) and Bucs, Succop has made 83.0 percent of his 318 field-goal tries and 96.3 percent of his 405 PATs.
