Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown hasn't played since Week 6 due to an ankle injury. Though the Bucs are finally getting healthier, the team would love to have the playmaking wideout back on the field to elevate this offense even more.

Head coach Bruce Arians has revealed a potential return date for Brown.

Antonio Brown Injury Update

Arians is "hopeful" Brown can return in Week 13 against the Atlanta Falcons. Brown is moving around "a lot better" at practice, which would open up the chance for the speedster to finally take the field again.

Tampa Bay has certainly felt Brown's absence. They dropped two straight games during Weeks 8 and 10 before bouncing back with a win in Week 11.

Brown was off to a torrid start in 2021, racking up 418 yards and 4 TDs on just 29 receptions. With Mike Evans currently plagued by a back issue, Brown's return would make sure this offense doesn't drop off down the stretch.

Without Brown and potentially Evans in Week 12, the Bucs are 3-point road favorites against the Indianapolis Colts, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
