Bucs activate LB Kevin Minter from COVID-19 list

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers activated linebacker Kevin Minter from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

Minter and wide receiver Antonio Brown landed on the list last week and both missed Sunday’s 34-24 loss to the Rams in Los Angeles.

Head coach Bruce Arians said the team is “still waiting” to see when Brown can return to the 53-man roster.

Minter, 30, is a special teams captain and the primary backup to starting inside linebackers Lavonte David and Devin White. He played 51 snaps in the first two games, all on special teams, and made two tackles.

A second-round pick by Arizona in 2013, Minter has 316 tackles and six sacks in 109 games (47 starts) with the Cardinals (2013-16), Cincinnati Bengals (2017) and Buccaneers.
