The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will look to remain undefeated in Week 3 as they square off against fellow NFC contenders the Los Angeles Rams. LA's offense looks like a juggernaut, and Tampa will need its championship-winning defense to step up if they're to get the road win.

However, Jason Pierre-Paul has popped up on the injury report with a shoulder ailment, and his latest Instagram post is a cause for concern.

Jason Pierre-Paul Injury

Pierre-Paul referenced "setbacks" on his Instagram story, which indicates something clearly isn't right with his body. He could be talking about the injury itself being a setback, or it's possible that the issue is worse than initially thought. Either way, this certainly is a cause for alarm.

JPP found new life after his trade to Tampa, racking up 32 tackles for loss, 30.5 sacks and 7 forced fumbles across his first three seasons. His Pro Bowl campaign in 2020 was vital to the Buccaneers' Super Bowl run, and he'll look to have a similar impact as his team hopes to repeat.

Pierre-Paul's status is worth monitoring heading into Week 3. Tampa Bay is a 1.5-point road favorite ahead of its clash against the Rams, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
