Works out in Chicago

Logan (knee) had a workout with the Bears on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Logan missed all of 2020 after undergoing surgery in August to repair a patellar tendon injury, and he's now attempting to latch on with a new team. The 27-year-old has five carries for 12 yards and nine receptions for 50 yards in 22 career games between the Cardinals and Buccaneers.

Clears COVID-19 protocols

The Buccaneers activated Logan from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Logan will revert to injured reserve, where he will stay for the rest of the 2020 season after undergoing August surgery to repair a patellar tendon injury.

Shifts to COVID-19 list

The Buccaneers placed Logan (knee) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Logan has either tested positive for the virus or come into close contact with an infected person. The 26-year-old running back was placed on season-ending injured reserve back in August, so his placement on the COVID-19 list was just a formality.

Placed on season-ending IR

Logan (knee) was placed on season-ending injured reserve on Sunday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: The speedy running back/returner will see his 2020 campaign end before it even begins, as Logan's placement on IR before final roster cuts means he's ineligible to return during the coming season. Logan's biggest contributions were expected to come in the return game, as the 25-year-old saw only five touches on offense through 12 games last season but did compile 396 combined yards on kickoff and punt returns and logged 206 special-teams snaps overall.

Needs surgery, could return

Logan (knee) is scheduled to undergo knee surgery Saturday after suffering a patellar tendon injury during Thursday's practice, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Logan's procedure won't necessarily be season-ending, but his rehab will certainly cause him to miss significant time. The 25-year-old's extended absence opens up a clear path for rookie Raymond Calais to lock up the No. 5 gig, but it remains to be seen whether the Buccaneers will carry more than four running backs on the 53-man roster.

Aug 20, 2020 4:54 PM EST

Facing competition for No. 4 gig

Logan (thumb) will compete with Raymond Calais and Aca'Cedric Ware for a roster spot in training camp, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Logan has failed to handle more than 23 offensive snaps in back-to-back seasons, but he secured a key role on special teams with Tampa Bay last season (9.5 yards per punt return) before suffering a broken thumb. Now healthy, Logan's primary competition for the No. 4 running back spot will come in the form of rookie seventh-round pick Raymond Calais, who logged a 4.42 second 40-yard dash time at the combine.

Jul 7, 2020 4:43 PM EST

Officially on IR

Logan (thumb) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Analysis: Logan broke his thumb while fielding punts during last Friday's practice, and he was ruled out for the season following the incident, so his placement on IR was a formality. The 25-year-old running back rarely played on offense this season, but he's a skilled specialist with 9.5 yards per punt return.

Dec 10, 2019 1:28 PM EST

Done for the season

Logan suffered a broken thumb during Friday's practice, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Analysis: Logan appeared in 12 games with the Buccaneers this season, racking up 10 yards on three carries and catching two of three targets for 13 yards. He did most of his damage on special teams, accumulating 271 and 124 yards on kick and punt returns, respectively. With Scott Miller (hamstring) also expected to miss Week 14, Justin Watson stands to field punt returns versus the Colts on Sunday.

Dec 6, 2019 9:18 AM EST

Logs five snaps on offense

Logan rushed once for two yards and returned two punts for 18 yards in the Buccaneers' 28-11 win over the Jaguars on Sunday.

Analysis: Logan saw five snaps on offense, as he continues to serve in the shorter side of a platoon as the change-of-pace back with Dare Ogunbowale. The speedy Logan also was productive job on his pair of punt returns, pushing his total yardage tally in that category to 395 over 12 games.

Dec 3, 2019 10:26 PM EST

Season-high seven snaps in win

Logan rushed once for two yards and returned two punts for 13 yards in the Buccaneers' 35-22 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Analysis: Logan logged a season-high seven plays from scrimmage in the win, eating a bit into fellow change-of-pace back Dare Ogunbowale's opportunities. Irrespective of the slight bump in playing time, Logan is likely to remain a bit player in the offense for the balance of the season while also filling both returner roles.

Nov 26, 2019 5:03 PM EST

Action on offense again

Logan secured his only target for 11 yards, returned one punt for seven yards and ran back one kickoff for 16 yards in the Buccaneers' 34-17 loss to the Saints on Sunday.

Analysis: Logan has now been in on at least one offensive play for three straight games, although he logged just one snap from scrimmage Sunday. The second-year speedster still projects primarily as a special teams asset, but there's a chance he could start to see more opportunities in the offense if the 3-7 Buccaneers begin to turn their focus to next season in the coming weeks.

Nov 18, 2019 11:06 PM EST

Gains clearance for London game

Logan (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers in London, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Analysis: Logan ensured his availability for Week 6 by practicing in limited fashion Thursday and Friday. He'll dress as the Buccaneers' No. 4 running back but will make his biggest impact on special teams as the team's kickoff returner.

Oct 13, 2019 5:32 AM EST

Questionbale Week 6

Logan (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers in London.

Analysis: The 25-year-old began the week not practicing but was a limited participant Thursday and Friday to earn the questionable tag. Dare Ogunbowale is next up on the depth chart at kick returner should Logan be unable to suit up.

Oct 11, 2019 11:44 AM EST

Limited Thursday

Logan (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Logan couldn't practice in any capacity Wednesday, making Thursday's limited session a step in the right direction. If the 25-year-old is able to shake his injury and suit up Sunday versus the Panthers, he projects to serve as Tampa Bay's top kick returner.

Oct 10, 2019 12:01 PM EST

Nursing ankle injury

Logan was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice due to an ankle injury.

Analysis: Logan played 19 snaps and worked as the top kick returner during Sunday's loss to the Saints and apparently sustained the ankle injury during the contest. The 25-year-old will need to advance to limited participation over the next couple days to have a chance of playing Week 6.

Oct 9, 2019 2:44 PM EST

Logs three kickoff returns

Logan returned three kickoffs for 60 yards in the Buccaneers' 31-17 loss to the 49ers on Sunday.

Analysis: The speedster saw only one snap from scrimmage and did not record a touch on the play, but he was the only player to log any kickoff returns. Logan could eventually work his way into the backfield conversation as a change-of-pace option due to his playmaking ability, but as a recent acquisition, he's likely still firming up his recall of coach Bruce Arians' offense, which he was previously exposed to during his 2017 rookie campaign in Arizona.

Sep 9, 2019 8:06 AM EST

Slated for Week 1 work

Logan is projected to serve as the primary kickoff returner in Sunday's regular-season opener against the 49ers, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The 2017 fifth-round pick logged 296 kickoff return yards last season for the Cardinals at a solid 24.7 yards per attempt. Logan's most likely path to playing time to start the season will come through his special-teams role, although the North Carolina product does have a solid college track record as a pass catcher and could eventually challenge Dare Ogunbowale for work as the third running back.

Sep 3, 2019 10:56 PM EST

Claimed by Bucs

The Buccaneers claimed Logan off waivers from the Cardinals, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Logan will be reunited with coach Bruce Arians, who overlapped with the running back for one season (2017) in Arizona. The situation is as good as any running back could hope for in terms of earning snaps, but Logan still profiles as a scatback and return specialist above all else.

Sep 2, 2019 1:42 PM EST

Chopped by Cardinals

Logan was cut by the Cardinals on Saturday, Scott Bordow of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Logan survived cut-down Saturday but then lost his job Sunday after the Cardinals made a slew of waiver claims. With the 2017 fifth-round pick off the roster, D.J. Foster is left as the No. 3 running back, while Andy Isabella and Damiere Byrd are the favorites to return kickoffs.

Sep 1, 2019 12:27 PM EST

Handles three kick returns Thursday

Logan recorded five carries for 15 yards and returned three kickoffs for 71 yards during Thursday's preseason defeat to the Raiders.

Analysis: The latter stat is likely the most important as it pertains to Logan landing a spot on the 53-man roster. Handling the first three kickoff returns for the Cardinals, he averaged 23.7 yards per opportunity, which would have placed him in a tie for eighth for those who qualified last season. Return duties aside, all of his rushes occurred on the Cardinals' first possession of the second half en route to a successful field goal. Such work will be difficult to come by in the regular season with David Johnson and Chase Edmonds embedded at the top of the depth chart, but at least Logan appears to have regained his standing as the team's top kick returner, per the team's most recent depth chart.
