Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown Questionable for Super Bowl LV

Published

on

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown is listed as questionable for Super Bowl LV with a knee injury.

Brown was limited in practice Wednesday, but was a full participant on Thursday and Friday. The knee injury forced Brown to miss Tampa Bay’s NFL Championship game win over the Green Bay Packers two weeks ago.

The four-time All-Pro has caught 45 passes for 483 yards and four touchdowns this season. Brown has not made much of an impact this post season, posting just three receptions for 59 yards and a score.

Tampa Bay tight end Cameron Brate is also listed as questionable for Sunday’s big game. He did not practice Friday after seeing limited action on Thursday.

As for the Kansas City Chiefs, they will be without left tackle Eric Fisher (Achilles) and linebacker Willie Gay (knee). Both announcements confirm the expected, as each injury was likely season-ending, even though neither was placed on injured reserve.

The loss of Fisher is a massive blow to the Chief offense, opposing a Bucs defense that recorded the fourth-most sacks in football this season. They have seven sacks this postseason.

Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins (calf) is questionable to play in the Super Bowl. He has battled the calf injury all season, and has not played since Kansas City’s Week 16 win over the Atlanta Falcons.
