Two days away from their playoff game against the New Orleans Saints, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers placed starting guard Alex Cappa on the injured reserve list. Cappa fractured his ankle just before halftime in their Wild Card game against the Washington Football Team.
To add depth to their offensive line, the Buccaneers announced the signing of veteran guard Earl Watford. Watford is an eight-year pro who spent last season with the Buccaneers and even made four starts. He’ll still need some conditioning, so Aaron Stinnie will likely get the start on Sunday in place of Cappa.
The Buccaneers have been outscored 72-26 in their two games against the Saints this season. New Orleans was able to get 16 hits on Brady, sacking him six times, and force a total of five interceptions in both games. The Saints have successfully generated pressure against quarterbacks this season as they’re ranked seventh in the league in this category.
FanDuel currently lists New Orleans as a three-point home favorite in this matchup with Tampa Bay.
