Cameron Brate has sprained neck

Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate returned to Tampa with his teammates Sunday night after evaluation at a Pittsburgh hospital.

Brate, who was just returning from a concussion, now has a neck injury.

“He has a sprained neck,” Bucs coach Todd Bowles said, via a transcript from the team. “He has all his extremities moving well and he’s resting. That’s been the extent of it. Everything else has came out negative.”

Considering how scary the situation appeared after Myles Jack tackled Brate, Bowles said everything “came out great.” Brate passed all neurological tests.

The Bucs have veteran Kyle Rudolph, a healthy scratch for four of the team’s six games, and rookies Cade Otton and Ko Kieft at the position. Rob Gronkowski remains a free agent after retiring in the offseason, and Tom Brady surely could use his long-time security blanket.

  1. somebody tell Brady since he was too busy playing toss to check on Brate lying 10 feet away
    good teammates there Tom
    he did New England a favor by leaving

  2. Yes, bring in Gronk and every other free agent, makes some trades as well to prove that Brady is no longer a winner without a superteam of mercs around him.

    NE left him.

    Fact.

  4. Not to take away from Cade Otton and Ko Kieft…who have done well…I don’t understand why Kyle Rudolph has amounted to being a healthy scratch most games. It is odd a guy with his talent (and he’s not old or injured) doesn’t even dress from games. The Bucs need someone who can catch in the Red Zone. So, his chance is coming up!

  5. I sprained my neck in high school (high jumping). That is no joke. Was about 10 months before it was “back to normal”. (granted I didnt have a professional medical staff, so it wont be that long for his complete recovery, but it was rough). My head was “stuck” looking about 75 degrees to the left for 4 days before I was able to start moving it back toward the front. Was a week before I could look straight ahead. Was 3 weeks before I could turn my head to the right.
