The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Seattle Seahawks kicked off the Week 10 Sunday slate in Munich, Germany. The Bucs' offense is largely rolling in the game, as they are ahead in the fourth quarter. Running back Leonard Fournette almost missed the trip, but his passport arrived in time, and he could travel overseas. Unfortunately, it appears he has suffered a hip injury in the game and is doubtful to return. While he is sidelined, rookie Rachaad White is expected to man the backfield.

Prior to his injury, Fournette had 14 carries for 57 yards and a touchdown. Despite being injured, he won’t be able to escape the wobbly pass he threw Tom Brady in a wildcat formation for a brutal interception. We will see what kind of updates we get with the injury, and he could just be sidelined because Tampa Bay has a decent-sized lead. Ke’Shawn Vaughn will also get extra work while Fournette cannot play.
