This coming weekend is going to be a tough one for Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With Rob Gronkowski’s rib injuries keeping him out of action, they’ve lost another crucial player. Antonio Brown, the dynamic wide receiver is ruled out of game week seven with an ankle injury. He sustained this injury in practice, and it’ll keep him from playing an important fixture.

With two star players out of action, it looks like Tampa Bay Buccaneers have their backs against the wall. Rob Gronkowski and Antonio Brown led Tampa Bay’s offensive line-up, with Tom Brady running things from the QB position. With his two favorite targets missing, Brady will also have a tough game this Sunday.

The team held Brown from practicing this Wednesday, the first time reports of an injury emerged. This immediately worried Bucs fans, who only saw the upcoming Chicago Bears fixture looming large. Meanwhile, Tom Brady has been practicing with running backs Leonard Fournette and #2 wide receiver Mark Evans, to make up for the missing participants in his attacking strategy.

The offensive line isn’t the only component of the team hampered by injuries. It looks like the defensive side of things looks bleak as well. Richard Sherman suffered an injury against Philadelphia Eagles, and will miss the Chicago Bears fixture as well. Alongside him, linebacker Lavonte David also nurses an ankle injury.

This news would surely devastate a Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan, but there’s still a silver lining. Although key players won’t play, they still have the GOAT to depend on, and when the pressure is on, he delivers exceptional results. Brady has been running plays with running backs of the team, which means he does have some cunning plans up his sleeve.

Before we get our hopes up about Tom Brady destroying Chicago, we must consider his physical condition as well. The 44-year-old hasn’t shown signs of slowing down, but wear and tear must chip away at his body. A couple of weeks ago, Brady sported a bandage around his thumb ahead of the Eagles fixture.

Brady promised the injury wouldn’t bother him, and it didn’t as the Bucs trampled the Eagles. And to make fans happier, Brady practiced on Wednesday without the bandage on his thumb. This means Brady is actually at hundred percent, and he’s looking to make an example out of Chicago.
