O.J. Howard, TE (TB)

First catch of season Sunday

Howard secured his only target for 21 yards while logging 11 snaps from scrimmage in Sunday's 48-25 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

The oft-injured tight end took some small steps forward from a catchless opener during which he'd also logged just six snaps from scrimmage. It appears the Buccaneers are easing the talented Howard back into action after last season's Achilles tear, and with Rob Gronkowski practically looking like he's back in his prime over the first two games, Howard could find extensive playing time a bit difficult to come by even as when he's deemed to be back at full strength.
