Charles Sims: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

As expected, the Bucs have placed Sims (ankle) on their IR/designated for return list, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Sims (ankle) is expected to be placed on the Buccaneers' injured reserve/designated-to-return list on Tuesday, CBS Sports reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Sims injured his ankle and underwent surgery in mid-August, which will likely rule him out until at least the midseason mark of this year. Nonetheless, the Buccaneers were very encouraged by the ability their third-round pick showed during training camp, especially in pass-catching situations out of the backfield. With that in mind, Tampa Bay intends to use its designated-to-return listing on Sims, who will consequently be eligible to practice only after Week 6 and able to play only after Week 8. Until then, Bobby Rainey and Mike James (shoulder) are expected to serve as Doug Martin's primary backups at running back.
Sims had successful surgery on his ankle and believes that he'll be able to play at some point this season, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Sims was expected to miss 12-14 weeks before the surgery, so his timetable for a return has likely remained unchanged. He still has a long road to recovery, so Sims should only be considered later in the season when his status becomes clearer.
Sims is slated to undergo surgery on his right ankle Saturday, with Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times indicating that the rookie running back is in line to miss 12-14 weeks worth of action.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Sims' ability as a pass-catcher out of the backfield made him a candidate to contribute to the Bucs' offense out of the gate this season, but his injury puts those plans on hold. With Sims out of the picture for now, Bobby Rainey and Mike James slot in as the leading contenders for work behind starter Doug Martin.
Coach Lovie Smith indicated Thursday that Sims (ankle) "won't play in the immediate future, that's for sure," Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
