Richard Sherman is back on the Buccaneers’ active roster.

Sherman was designated to return from injured reserve this week and the Bucs announced that the cornerback has been activated on Friday. Sherman missed the last six games with a calf injury.

Head coach Bruce Arians said that Sherman could see some time at safety, but the exact plans for this Sunday’s game against the Bills are unclear.

If they do want to give him some time at that position, he could help fill in for Jordan Whitehead. He’s been ruled out for the second straight week with a calf injury.

Center Ryan Jensen (ankle) returned to practice Friday and is listed as questionable. That’s the same listing as wide receiver Jaelon Darden (concussion), cornerback Jamel Dean (concussion), and defensive tackle Williams Gholston (wrist, knee).

  1. Might be a good move for him. It worked out for Rod Woodsen and Dieon Sanders late in their careers.

  2. This game will be a test for Josh Allen. Mac Jones was able to move the ball against the Bucs defense after only few NFL starts. Josh Allen has more experience and more weapons should be able to carve up the Bucs. If he comes up short then he is another Carson Wentz. Good for only one year.

  3. Sherm has taken yet another step BACK from the point his body was at previously where everybody and Dey Mama already knew Sherman was washed up. And now all of the sudden a healthy but lesser version of that dude who was washed long ago is supposed TO HELP this Tampa defense? Yeah good luck with that he is about to get BLOWN BY in embarrassing fashion when it comes time for Playoff Sundays kick off.

  4. Dudes cooked but they were desperate so they took a chance now they just hope he makes it to to the end of the year.

  5. Hope teams burn that loudmouth a-hole the Bucs have so many divas it’s very easy to hate this
    team .
