Buccaneers remove TE Cameron Brate from PUP list

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers removed veteran tight end Cameron Brate from the physically unable to perform list on Monday.

Brate, 30, was placed on the list just before the start of training camp with an undisclosed injury.

He is entering his eighth season with the Buccaneers, who originally signed him as an undrafted free agent out of Harvard in 2014.

Brate caught 28 passes for 282 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games for the Super Bowl champions last season. He has 223 receptions for 2,438 yards and 29 scores in 98 career games (29 starts).

Brate’s status is uncertain for Saturday’s preseason opener against the visiting Cincinnati Bengals. Tampa Bay kicks off the NFL’s regular season on Sept. 9 against the visiting Dallas Cowboys.

Report: Bucs expect AB, Cameron Brate to play

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers expect wide receiver Antonio Brown and tight end Cameron Brate to play in Sunday’s Super Bowl, ESPN reported Saturday.

Both are listed as questionable.

Brown has been bothered by a knee injury that caused him to miss the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers on Jan. 24.

Brate (back) was added to the injury report late in the week. He was limited in Thursday’s session.

The Bucs play the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV in Tampa.
