Howard was a casualty in the 48-10 blowout loss at Chicago on Sunday.

Howard has 11 catches for 222 yards and a touchdown this season.

The Buccaneers have two weeks before returning to the field and could make adjustments during the bye week with Jameis Winston expected to be at the helm.

Without Howard, Cameron Brate is expected to start.
