Antonio Bryant didn’t travel with the team today, according to the Buccaneers’ Web site, meaning Tampa Bay will be without its No. 1 wide receiver in Sunday’s game against Buffalo.
Bryant played in last week’s loss to the Cowboys, but he was bothered by a knee on which he had offseason surgery. He had been listed as doubtful to play against the Bills.
Without Bryant, the Bucs likely will turn to rookie Sammie Stroughter, Maurice Stovall or Brian Clark to start.
Bryant set career highs in receptions (83), yards (1,248) and touchdowns (seven) last season, and the Bucs placed a $9.88 million franchise tag on him to keep him this year.
