  • Buccaneers' Calijah Kancey: Busy in loss at Indy

    Kancey recorded three tackles (two solo), including a sack, and also was credited with a pass defensed in Sunday's 27-20 loss at the Colts.

    Kancey built on his promising rookie season in Week 12, registering in the sack column for the third time this season. His 44 defensive snaps were also good for his second most of the year. He projects to see a healthy dose of pass-rushing opportunities in Week 13 versus the Panthers.

  • Buccaneers' Calijah Kancey: Available Sunday

    Kancey (quadriceps) is good to go for Sunday's tilt against the Titans.

    Kancey logged consecutive limited practices to close out the week before drawing a questionable tag. It looks like he is feeling well enough to play through any lingering issues. As a result, look for him to take on his usual role at defensive end.

  • Buccaneers' Calijah Kancey: Questionable Sunday

    Kancey (quad) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Titans.

    The 2023 first-round pick out of Pittsburgh popped up on the Buccaneers' injury report earlier in the week with a quad issue, and he recorded limited practice sessions both Thursday and Friday. If Kancey is unable to suit up this weekend, Mike Greene should see an increased role on Tampa Bay's defensive line.

  • Buccaneers' Calijah Kancey: Season-high snap total in loss

    Kancey registered four solo tackles, including a sack, in Sunday's 39-37 loss to the Texans.

    Kancey got his second sack of the season when he took down C.J. Stroud towards the end of the second quarter. Three of Kancey's four tackles in the game were for a loss, and most importantly, he played a season-high 52 defensive snaps (84 percent snap share) in Week 9, indicating that the rookie is getting back to full health after missing three games with a calf injury.

  • Buccaneers' Calijah Kancey: Records sack in Week 6 loss

    Kancey posted three tackles (one solo), including a sack and an additional quarterback hit, in the Buccaneers' 20-6 loss to the Lions on Sunday.

    Kancey missed the last three games with a calf injury, but he made an impact in his first action since logging the first 11 snaps of his career in Week 1 before exiting. The rookie first-round pick is expected to make an impact with his unique athleticism for an interior lineman, and his solid work over 40 snaps Sunday may be a preview of things to come if Kancey can remain healthy.

  • Buccaneers' Calijah Kancey: Back to full speed Wednesday

    Kancey (calf) was a full participant at practice Wednesday.

    Kancey missed Tampa Bay's last three games leading up to their Week 5 bye, but that time off seems to have been enough to get him back to full strength for Week 6. He'll step back into a rotational role on the Buccaneers' defensive line Sunday versus the Lions.

  • Buccaneers' Calijah Kancey: Will miss another game

    Kancey (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday's Week 4 game against the Saints, Greg Auman of Fox Sports reports.

    Kancey played 11 defensive snaps in Week 1 against the Vikings before getting hurt, and he's been sidelined ever since. Logan Hall, Mike Greene, Vita Vea and Greg Gaines should see most of the snaps on coach Todd Bowles' defensive line versus New Orleans. The Bucs have a Week 5 bye, so Kancey will attempt to return after that.

  • Buccaneers' Calijah Kancey: Ruled out for Week 3

    Kancey (calf) will miss his second game in a row after being ruled out for Monday's contest against the Eagles, Brianna Dix of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    Kancey has been battling a calf injury he sustained at the beginning of training camp. He was able to make his pro debut in Week 1 against the Vikings but logged just 11 defensive snaps before aggravating the injury. Undrafted free agent Mike Greene -- who played in 25 defensive snaps in Week 2 against the Bears and registered a tackle -- is set to once again take on an increased workload, this time against the Eagles' dominant offensive line.

  • Buccaneers' Calijah Kancey: Misses first practice of week

    Kancey (calf) did not participate at practice Thursday.

    Kancey has not played since reaggravating a strained right calf in Week 1, and he's not off to a great start ahead of Monday's game versus the Eagles. He'll probably need to practice in some capacity Friday or Saturday in order to have a chance at suiting up in Week 3.
