The Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver room is about as crowded as one of those clown cars we used to see years ago in cartoons, therefore, every rep counts for each wideout during training camp.
Breshad Perriman is one of the many pass-catchers fighting for those last two, maybe three, spots at the receiver position. Unfortunately, he’s missing out on those aforementioned reps that are so crucial.
Per The Athletic‘s Greg Auman, Perriman missed Tuesday’s practice after he pulled up during Monday’s session.

Many remember Perriman for his five game run with the Buccaneers in which he caught 35 receptions for over 800 yards and five touchdowns. Many also remember him for his electrifying, walk-off catch-and-run touchdown against the Buffalo Bills in overtime last year.
Perriman is currently battling the likes of Scotty Miller, Tyler Johnson, Jaelon Darden, Cyril Grayson Jr., and a few undrafted rookies for those final spots. The top-4 receiver positions are set with Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Russell Gage, and Julio Jones on the roster and it’s highly unlikely the Buccaneers carry more than six receivers into the season. Unless something happens to where they know Godwin will miss the first few games.
But even if Godwin misses time, it’s unknown if the Buccaneers carry more than six receivers due to their current issues on the offensive line and the questions at tight end.
Meaning, Perriman needs to get back on the field as quickly as possible. It doesn’t help he’s played just one full season over the course of his career, either.
