It sounds like Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers might be able to treat Saturday as more of a tune-up game than anything else.
WFT has leaned on Alex Smith at quarterback when he’s been healthy during the back half of the season, but he’s working through a calf issue ahead of Saturday’s game.
But according to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, things are heading in the wrong direction with Smith’s calf.
Which means we might get Brady vs. Taylor Heinicke.
Since arriving in the NFL in 2015 as an undrafted free agent out of Old Dominion, Heinicke has appeared in eight games, starting one.
