Auman adds that Gholston will play in Tampa Bay’s Week 9 game after testing negative.
He was placed on the team’s COVID-19 list earlier this week after coming into close contact with someone who tested positive for the virus.
Gholston, 29, is a former fourth-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2013. He played out his four-year, $2,560,544 contract before agreeing to a five-year, $27 million contract with the Buccaneers in 2017.
In 2020, Gholston has appeared in eight games for the Buccaneers and recorded 21 tackles, two sacks and a pass defense.
