Antonio Brown is back in action for the Buccaneers.
Tampa Bay on Thursday announced it activated the veteran receiver from the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Brown landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list eight days ago following a positive test. He was the third Buccaneer to end up on the list and missed Tampa Bay's 34-24 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.
Without Brown, the Buccaneers turned to second-year wideout Tyler Johnson for an increased role. Johnson finished with three catches for 63 yards, while Scott Miller caught a pair of passes for 11 yards in Sunday's defeat.
Miller has since landed on injured reserve with a turf toe injury sustained in the loss to the Rams, adding value to the timing of Brown's return.
Brown got off to a strong start in Week 1, catching five passes for 121 yards and a touchdown before quieting down in Week 2 with one catch for 17 yards. He's returning at the perfect time for a date with his former (brief) employer: the New England Patriots.
