The Tampa Bay Bucs will be missing a key player for their game this weekend.

On Friday, Tampa Bay Bucs head coach Bruce Arians informed reporters that Antonio Brown will not be available for the game.

Brown was dealing with an injury against the Saints, and only accounted for one catch for 10 yards.

The former All-Pro’s absence would certainly affect the Buccaneers, considering that he was Tom Brady’s most targeted receiver over the final five games of the regular season and caught a 36-yard touchdown pass in the wild-card win over Washington.
