Bucs G Earl Watford moved from COVID list to IR

Tampa Bay Buccaneers guard Earl Watford was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list and moved to injured reserve on Sunday.

Watford, 31, played 15 games (four starts) for the Buccaneers in 2019. He did not see any regular-season action last season but was on the Super Bowl champions’ postseason roster.

He re-signed with the Buccaneers on Aug. 12 and played in their first two preseason games before being placed on the COVID list.

Watford’s injury was not disclosed. He is eligible to return to the active roster after a minimum of three weeks.

The only Buccaneers player remaining on the COVID list is defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. Coach Bruce Arians told reporters recently that all four of his players who originally were placed on the list are expected to be activated by Monday.

Tampa Bay hosts the Dallas Cowboys Thursday in the NFL’s season opener. The franchise will hang its second Super Bowl banner before the game.
