After winning Super Bowl 55 back in February, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are gearing up for another championship run in 2021. However, if they want to be successful, they're going to need seven-time Pro-Bowl wideout Antonio Brown to be as healthy as possible.
Brown underwent an offseason knee surgery, which has kept him out of Tampa's minicamp since it began. Fortunately, Brown shared a great update on his injury rehab on his Instagram.

No matter how you look at it, it's great to see that Brown's rehab is going as planned. ESPN's Jenna Laine added that Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians expects that the seven-time All-Pro wideout is about two weeks away from being cleared to practice.
Brown, along with Chris Godwin and Mike Evans, is an integral part of one of the top pass-catching trios in the NFL today. He joined the Buccaneers halfway through the 2020 season but started slow. Eventually, he grew more comfortable and started creating some chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady.
By the end of the season, Brown finished with 483 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns in eight games (four of which he started in). Considering how Brady had a 109.8 passer rating when targeting the veteran wideout, expect more of the same or even better production in 2021.
