  • Buccaneers' Ke'Shawn Vaughn: Active for first time this season

    Vaughn is listed as active Monday versus the Eagles.

    The Buccaneers made Vaughn a healthy scratch for the first two games of the campaign, but with fellow running back Chase Edmonds landing on injured reserve last Wednesday due to an MCL injury, the former will have a chance to make his season debut Monday. Rachaad White is the clear No. 1 RB for Tampa Bay, and undrafted rookie Sean Tucker is the backup, so Vaughn may be contained to special-teams work and the occasional snap on offense.

  • Buccaneers' Ke'Shawn Vaughn: No action despite active status

    Vaughn was active but didn't log any snaps from scrimmage or on special teams during the Buccaneers' 25-11 loss to the Eagles on Monday night.

    Vaughn was essentially a healthy scratch for the third time in as many games to open the season, despite being in uniform for his first 2023 contest. Game script went firmly against the ground attack as the night progressed Monday night, however, with even No. 2 back Sean Tucker garnering just two carries and four snaps. Vaughn should have another opportunity to fill the No. 3 running back role in a Week 4 road matchup against the Saints, considering Chase Edmonds (knee) is on injured reserve for at least three more contests.

  • Buccaneers' Ke'Shawn Vaughn: Set to make 2023 debut

    Vaughn is expected to be active for Monday's contest against the Eagles, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

    Vaughn sat out of practice leading up to Week 1 after being unhappy with his spot on the depth chart. He was a healthy inactive for the first two games of the season, but with Chase Edmonds (knee) being placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Vaughn will get the chance to show what he can provide while operating behind Rachaad White and Sean Tucker.

  • Buccaneers' Ke'Shawn Vaughn: Healthy scratch Week 1

    Vaughn (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game at Minnesota, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official sitereports.

    The 26-year-old missed a practice this week after being displeased with his spot on Tampa Bay's season-opening depth chart, so it's not a major surprise he's not suiting up Sunday. Vaughn reportedly worked out his issues with the team, but Rachaad White, Sean Tucker and Chase Edmonds will be the Buccaneers' active running backs for Week 1.

  • Buccaneers' Ke'Shawn Vaughn: Works issues out with team

    Coach Todd Bowles said Friday that Vaughn is back with the Bucs and has worked things out after leaving the team for a day due to displeasure with a demotion, Greg Auman of Fox Sports reports.

    Vaughn still has his job but may only play special teams Sunday at Minnesota and could even be a healthy scratch. He was hoping to earn a role on offense in the final season of his rookie contract, but it sounds like Sean Tucker and Chase Edmonds -- in addition to starter Rachaad White -- are ahead of Vaughn on the backfield depth chart. While Edmonds isn't likely to play much apart from clear passing situations, Tucker is worth making note of for fantasy after recent comments from Bowles essentially confirmed the undrafted rookie had won the No. 2 spot in Tampa's backfield. It's unclear if Edmonds also will be involved and whether he or Vaughn (or neither) will be a healthy scratch for Sunday's opener in Minnesota.

  • Buccaneers' Ke'Shawn Vaughn: Practices fully in return to team

    Vaughn (personal) practiced in full Thursday.

    Vaughn was absent from Wednesday's session due to personal reasons, which Greg Auman of Fox Sports called an unexcused absence. Despite Vaughn's listing of "full," Auman noted the running back only watched special-teams drills from the sideline during the media-access portion of practice. Vaughn may be poised for regular healthy scratches this season with Rachaad White the clear No. 1 RB and undrafted rookie Sean Tucker and Chase Edmonds ahead of him on the depth chart.

  • Buccaneers' Ke'Shawn Vaughn: Absent for non-injury reasons

    Vaughn missed Wednesday's practice for personal reasons, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Head coach Todd Bowles sounded less than thrilled about the situation and said Wednesday that he wasn't sure if Vaughn would be available for Sunday's game against the Vikings. The fourth-year pro is listed as the No. 4 back on Tampa Bay's initial depth chart for the regular season, behind Rachaad White, Sean Tucker and Chase Edmonds.

  • Buccaneers' Ke'Shawn Vaughn: Looks vulnerable

    Vaughn has a spot on Tampa Bay's initial 53-man roster but appear vulnerable, Rick Stroud of The Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The Bucs kept four running backs, with Rachaad White the starter while veteran Chase Edmonds and rookie Sean Tucker represent Vaughn's competition for backup snaps. Vaughn has never lived up to his status as a third-round pick and enters the final year of his rookie contract having played far more snaps on special teams (386) than offense (247) through 37 career games.

  • Buccaneers' Ke'Shawn Vaughn: Improves in preseason finale

    Vaughn rushed six times for 26 yards and failed to bring in his only target in the Buccaneers' 26-20 preseason win over the Ravens on Saturday night.

    Vaughn gained nine of his yards on one carry, so his 4.3 yards per tote were somewhat deceptive. The fourth-year pro was the second running back to log a touch after starter Rachaad White, and he led all players at his position with 20 snaps. Vaughn's roster spot is likely safe, especially considering he also has plenty of special-teams experience. However, Patrick Laird fits a similar profile and ripped off an impressive 21-yard run against Baltimore, so there could be a tough decision ahead for the coaching staff if it's also considering keeping at least one of undrafted rookies Sean Tucker and Ronnie Brown on the final roster.

  • Buccaneers' Ke'Shawn Vaughn: No running room in preseason win

    Vaughn rushed four times for minus-8 yards and brought in his only target for 10 yards in the Buccaneers' 13-6 preseason win over the Jets on Saturday night.

    Vaughn was stonewalled on the ground to an even greater degree than in the preseason opener versus the Steelers, when he'd at least gained seven yards on his four rush attempts in that contest. The 2020 third-round pick was outperformed by multiple competitors for a roster spot, meaning next Saturday night's home preseason finale against the Ravens could be critical to Vaughn's Buccaneers future.

  • Buccaneers' Ke'Shawn Vaughn: Flops in elevated role

    Vaughn was held to just four yards on seven carries and was not targeted in Friday's preseason loss to the Steelers.

    Projected starter Rachaad White was held out of Tampa Bay's first exhibition contest, so it was notable that Vaughn was the first back deployed (even with the dirt-poor results). Fellow tailback rotation candidates Chase Edmonds (6/18/0) and Sean Tucker (6/10/0) barely moved the ball against Pittsburgh's defense either, so it's hard to give any player the leg up as they jockey for position ahead of Week 1. Vaughn will get an opportunity for redemption when the Bucs face the Jets on Aug. 19.

  • Buccaneers' Ke'Shawn Vaughn: Listed as third running back

    Vaughn is listed as the No. 3 running back on the Buccaneers' first depth chart of 2023, the team's official site reports.

    The fourth-year pro began camp as the No. 2 back, but Chase Edmonds fills that slotting in the first iteration of the depth chart. However, Vaughn is better suited to be an early-down option behind starter Rachaad White, while Edmonds is a versatile, change-of-pace back that can also split out wide. Vaughn also has a longer tenure with the team, although he and Edmonds are both learning new coordinator Dave Canales' offense from scratch.

  • Buccaneers' Ke'Shawn Vaughn: Enters camp as primary backup

    Vaughn is beginning training camp as the Buccaneers' No. 2 running back, Scott Reynolds of PewterReport.com reports.

    Vaughn appeared in 15 games for Tampa Bay last year but logged just 17 carries for 53 yards while securing three of four targets for 19 yards. However, the team's backfield should have a different look to begin the 2023 campaign after Leonard Fournette was released by the Buccaneers in February. Rachaad White projects to begin the year as the team's starting running back, but offensive coordinator Dave Canales recently indicated that Vaughn is ahead of Chase Edmonds and Patrick Laird for the primary backup job as training camp gets underway.
