Tampa Bay came back down double digits for a victory over the Los Angeles Chargers. The offense is clicking. Sunday, Tom Brady was as good as any player in the NFL. The 43-year-old completed 30 passes to 10 different receivers.
The bad news: injuries are mounting and concerning.
Mike Evans is yet to play at 100% and went down again. Chris Godwin is out. And the speedy Scotty Miller is dealing with a groin injury.
The run game isn’t any healthier. LeSean McCoy didn’t return after his injury. And Leonard Fournette missed the game and his status for Thursday is unclear.
Now, O.J. Howard suffered a ruptured Achilles and is likely done for the year. The talented tight end finally got going Sunday. With 50 yards and a big receiving touchdown, Howard and Brady were clicking.
Bucs coach Bruce Arians just said that TE O.J. Howard has a ruptured Achilles and is likely done for the year.

Tom Brady left New England, in part, to throw to actual receivers. At this rate, he’ll again be throwing to backup quarterbacks and practice squad-caliber talents.
