  • Buccaneers' Giovani Bernard: No offensive snaps Monday night

    Bernard logged eight special-teams snaps but did not see action on offense during the Buccaneers' 17-16 win over the Saints on Monday night.

    The veteran back garnered active status for the second time in as many games since coming off the injured list, but he failed to see any action on offense again. With both Leonard Fournette and Rachaad White above-average pass-catching backs, Bernard isn't a priority on offense for the time being.

  • Buccaneers' Giovani Bernard: No action in Week 12 return

    Bernard (ankle) did not log any snaps during the Buccaneers' 23-17 overtime loss to the Browns on Sunday despite being active for the contest.

    The veteran back was available following his Saturday activation from injured reserve, but even with Leonard Fournette (hip) inactive, Bernard did not see the field. It remains to be seen if Bernard sees some action in Week 13 against the Saints if Fournette remains unavailable, but if the latter is active, the veteran could find himself a healthy scratch.

  • Buccaneers' Giovani Bernard: Activated off IR

    The Buccaneers activated Bernard (ankle) off injured reserve Saturday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    With Leonard Fournette (hip) unavailable Sunday, it'll be interesting to monitor the usage of both Rachaad White and the veteran Bernard. While White has performed well as a receiver and pass protector this season, Bernard has historically been a standout in those areas as well. With that in mind, the Buccaneers could opt to use White primarily as a rusher, while Bernard takes the field primarily on the passing downs. The Buccaneers also have Ke'Shawn Vaughn on hand as another option in the backfield.

  • Buccaneers' Giovani Bernard: Practice window opens

    The Buccaneers designated Bernard (ankle) for return from injured reserve Monday.

    Bernard now has a 21-day window to be evaluated at practice without counting against the active roster, though Tampa Bay could fully activate him as early as Sunday's contest against the Browns. Once fully cleared for a return to the field, Bernard could mix in as a passing-down option behind Leonard Fournette and rookie Rachaad White.

  • Buccaneers' Giovani Bernard: Ticketed for IR

    The Buccaneers will place Bernard (ankle) on injured reserve Wednesday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    The transaction ensures that Bernard will be sidelined for at least the Buccaneers' next four games after he sustained the ankle injury in Sunday's win over the Saints. After recording 23 receptions in 12 games in his first season with Tampa Bay while often serving as a sub off the bench on passing downs, Bernard had exclusively played on special teams through the Bucs' first two games of 2022. Bernard's upcoming absence could pave the way for Ke'Shawn Vaughn to dress as the team's third running back behind starter Leonard Fournette and top backup Rachaad White.

  • Buccaneers' Giovani Bernard: Won't return versus Saints

    Bernard (ankle) was ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Saints.

    Bernard will be sidelined for the fourth quarter of Tampa Bay's divisional matchup after suffering an unspecified ankle injury at some point Sunday. The veteran running back, who didn't log a carry or catch prior to his exit, will now look to get healthy in advance of the Buccaneers' Week 3 contest against the Packers.

  • Buccaneers' Giovani Bernard: Set to play Sunday

    Bernard (ankle) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game at Dallas.

    After opening Week 1 prep with back-to-back limited sessions, Bernard practiced in full Friday, indicating the Buccaneers may have been holding him back for maintenance reasons more than anything. In a backfield led by Leonard Fournette that also rosters rookie Rachaad White and Ke'Shawn Vaughn, Bernard may be hard-pressed to see much action Sunday, assuming he's active.
