TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 31 (UPI) -- Dirk Koetter's stable of running backs is growing thin for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
"I don't think it's probably good," Koetter told reporters after the game. "But I don't know for sure. It's something to do with his ankle."
I am told that the injury suffered by Bucs running back Jacquizz Rodgers is a foot sprain. Details coming... https://t.co/PZmcbd8rLM— JennaLaineESPN (@JennaLaineESPN) October 31, 2016
Rodgers had 69 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries, before leaving Sunday's game. He piled up 164 yards in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Fantasy football team owners are looking forward to the return of All-Pro running back Doug Martin. The Buccaneers face a short week, with a Thursday Night Football contest against the Atlanta Falcons. Koetter will be looking at a committee to replace the RB1, meaning none of the Buccaneers backs are likely attractive fantasy options this week.
