Super Bowl LV
The NFL announced at Wednesday’s Fall League Meeting that Tampa Bay has been awarded the rights to host Super Bowl LV in 2021.
“The final approval of Super Bowl LV is a great source of pride for the Glazer family, the Buccaneers organization and the entire Tampa Bay region,” Buccaneers Co-Chairman Bryan Glazer said, via the Buccaneers’ official site. “We have made substantial improvements in recent years to ensure that Raymond James Stadium could ultimately host the game for a third time and we appreciate that our fellow owners have recognized the stadium and our area’s long and distinguished history as a world-class host city.”
- According to Joseph Person, Panthers S Kurt Coleman (knee) returned to practice on Wednesday after missing the last two weeks and “could” play Week 7’s game against the Bears.
- Person adds that Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin left practice early on Wednesday with a knee injury and his status for the rest of the week is unclear.
- According to Ian Rapoport, Benjamin is dealing with a sore knee.
Steelers HC Mike Tomlin said WR Martavis Bryant has not voiced any displeasure about being on the team and they have had “good, fluid communication.”
“He hasn’t,” said Tomlin, via Bob Labriola of the Steelers’ official site. “I’ve had good, fluid communication with Martavis throughout this process, like I have with all of the other players. He was a big contributor to our efforts on Sunday. He was excited like everyone else. I don’t know where these reports come from. Sometimes they come from family members or people close to them, sometime they might come from agents. I don’t judge him or my relationship with him based on things said by others. He appears to be happy and focused, so it’s a non-issue for us.”
“He had a good day, a real good day,” Mularkey said, via Jim Wyatt of the Titans’ official site. “If he continues to do what he did today, he should be very close, real close (to himself). He did a lot today, which was good to see.”
