T.J. Ward (hip) will play for Tampa Bay in Week 6

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter said that safety T.J. Ward will play against the Arizona Cardinals this week.

What It Means:

Ward missed Weeks 4 and 5 while dealing with a hip injury. He, along with linebacker Lavonte David, will be back in the lineup, which should mark an improvement for the Bucs in their Week 6 matchup.

Ward has just 7 tackles and 2 pass defenses in 2 games, but his presence should be enough to help the defense. The Buccaneers have allowed the 2nd-most pass yards (1,236), as well as 10 touchdowns, to opposing offenses through 4 games.
