Returns to game

McCollum (head) has returned to Sunday's game against the 49ers, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Analysis: McCollum was initially ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's matchup due to a concussion, but he apparently cleared the league's concussion protocol after undergoing further testing. Jamel Dean (toe) has been ruled out for the remainder of the game, so McCollum could see an increased role in Tampa Bay's secondary.

Exits with concussion

McCollum (concussion) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the 49ers, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: McCollum apparently sustained a concussion when he collided with San Francisco safety George Odum on a Buccaneers punt in the second quarter, per Laine. The rookie cornerback will now have one week to clear concussion protocol before Tampa Bay faces the Bengals on Sunday, Dec. 18. McCollum had stepped up into a bigger role with Sean Murphy-Bunting (quadriceps) once again inactive Week 14, so his absence will likely leave Dee Delaney to fill in for this depleted secondary.

Ready to roll against Cleveland

McCollum (concussion) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Browns.

Analysis: McCollum suffered a concussion in Tampa Bay's Week 10 win over Seattle, but he had time to recover during their subsequent bye week. He practiced in full each day leading up to Sunday's matchup against Cleveland and has fully cleared the league's concussion protocol. McCollum will return to a depth role in the secondary and a significant role on special teams, and he's racked up 14 total tackles and one pass defended across six games this season.

Will not return

McCollum (concussion) will not return Sunday against the Seahawks.

Analysis: McCollum's early exit is a blow to the Buccaneers' depth in their secondary. The rookie had not recorded any stats before suffering the injury, but his absence will potentially lead to extra opportunity for Dee Delaney.

Ready to face Packers

McCollum (hamstring) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's matchup against the Packers.

Analysis: McCollum will be ready for his NFL debut after logging full practices all week. With the Buccaneers' secondary otherwise healthy, he will likely be limited primarily to contributing on special teams.

Logs full practice Wednesday

McCollum (hamstring) was listed as a full participant on the Buccaneers' injury report Wednesday.

Analysis: McCollum has yet to make his NFL debut after picking up a hamstring injury in mid-August. The rookie cornerback was able to log two limited practices last week, and his full participation on Tampa Bay's first injury report of Week 3 is an encouraging sign for his availability moving forward. McCollum could be used in a primary reserve role if starting cornerback Carlton Davis (hip) is limited during this Sunday's game against Green Bay.

Won't debut Week 2

McCollum (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Saints.

Analysis: Though he concluded the week with a pair of limited practices, McCollum ultimately took a doubtful designation into Sunday's contest. The rookie fifth-round pick will have to wait at least one more game to make his NFL debut, but he could be ready to play in next Sunday's matchup with the Packers if he's able to turn in a full practice at some point during the upcoming week.

Likely out Week 2

McCollum (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game in New Orleans.

Analysis: McCollum sat out the season opener due to the hamstring injury, and it appears his absence will extend into Week 2. The rookie fifth-round pick is expected to require at least another week to recover before being available.
