Antonio Brown not on practice field, Ali Marpet is working

The Buccaneers returned to the practice field on Wednesday, but they continue to be without wide receiver Antonio Brown.

Brown has not played since injuring his ankle in Week Six and he was not on the field for the portion of practice open to the media. The team will practice twice more ahead of Sunday’s game against the Falcons, but even a return for those sessions might not be enough to have Brown ready after such a long layoff.

While Brown remains off the field, left guard Ali Marpet was back at practice on Wednesday. Marpet missed last Sunday’s win over the Colts with an abdomen injury. Aaron Stinnie, who started in Marpet’s place and left early with a knee injury, was not on the field for the open portion of practice.

Cornerbacks Carlton Davis and Jamel Dean were also practicing, although Dean was wearing a non-contact jersey.

  1. Why is it taking so long to find out if AB’s vax card was a fake?
    It shouldn’t take much longer than a phone call, or two.

  2. Other than Gronk, Brady’s receivers keep running sloppy routes, leading to incompletions and interceptions. Say what you will about AB, he works hard to make sure he is where Brady needs him to be. I’m guessing Brady wants him to be fully healed and fresh and ready to go at the end of the regular season and in the playoffs. (Not that Brady is always blameless for incompletions and interceptions, but in most cases you can see that he’s throwing where the receiver is supposed to be and al too often the guy isn’t there.)
