Bucs place Earl Watford, Nick Leverett on COVID-19 list

Peter King likes the Buccaneers' chances to go back-to-back as Tom Brady returns with an even stronger squad than their Super Bowl winning roster.

The Buccaneers will be without a pair of their offensive linemen for their preseason finale on Saturday.

According to the transaction wire, Tampa Bay has placed Earl Watford and Nick Leverett on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Watford re-signed with the Buccaneers earlier this month. The veteran offensive lineman signed with the Buccaneers in January for their playoff run. He started 25 games since entering the league as a fourth-round pick in 2013, spending time with the Cardinals, Jaguars, Bears, Browns, and Patriots.

Leverett signed with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent last year. He hasn’t appeared in a regular-season game.

The Buccaneers also placed kicker Ryan Succop on the COVID-19 list earlier this week.
