Myers agreed to a two-year contract extension with the Buccaneers at the conclusion of the 2014 season, Greg Auman of USA Today reports.

Myers was set to make $2.25 million next season before taking a pay cut to add a year that will keep him in Tampa through 2016. The well-traveled 29-year-old tight end made 22 catches for 190 yards and zero touchdowns in 2014. He is utilized primarily as a blocking tight end and will retain his role as the team hopes Austin Seferian-Jenkins will emerge as its primary pass-catching tight end.

Myers (calf) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Panthers.

Myers missed back-to-back contests with the calf ailment, but will suit up Sunday after logging full practices Thursday and Friday. With Austin Seferian-Jenkins (back) ruled out, Myers will join Luke Stocker and Cameron Brate in the committee of Buccaneers tight ends.

Myers (calf) is probable for Sunday's game against Carolina.

Myers is a surer thing for Sunday than Austin Seferian-Jenkins (back, questionable), but it's hard to get too excited about any Buccaneers on offense not named Mike Evans or Vincent Jackson. Myers has 18 catches for 169 yards and no touchdowns on 22 targets this year.

Myers (calf) practiced fully Thursday, the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Tampa Bay's tight end corps took another step to achieving full strength, as Austin Seferian-Jenkins remains the sole limited participant in drills. If Seferian-Jenkins is unable to achieve enough health for a substantial workload Sunday at Carolina, Myers and Luke Stocker would earn the majority of the TE snaps.

Myers (calf) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, the Buccaneers' official site reports.

After missing all practices the past two weeks, Myers' chances of suiting in Week 15 at Carolina have improved dramatically with an appearance in drills. Moreover, fellow tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins (back) joined him as a limited participant, meaning the Buccaneers' TE corps could return to full strength Sunday for the first time in weeks.

Myers (calf) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Lions.

Myers didn't see the practice field all week, and as a result, will take a seat for the afternoon contest, along with fellow tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins (back). With the two aforementioned options on the shelf, look for Luke Stocker to see an increased snap count at the tight end position.

Myers (calf) did not practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions.

After missing practice all week, Myers seems unlikely to play Sunday despite the questionable tag. Austin Seferian-Jenkins sat out all week as well, so we may see a lot of Luke Stocker at tight end for Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Myers (calf) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Jenna Laine of Sports Talk Florida reports.

Myers was joined on the sideline by rookie Austin Seferian-Jenkins (calf), leaving Luke Stocker (concussion) as the sole returnee to practice Wednesday. Their statuses are subject to change so early in the week, but Myers' inability to take part in drills for a second week in a row doesn't bode well for his Week 14 availability.

Myers (calf) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Bengals, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

After failing to participate in practice all week, Myers' first DNP of 2014 is no surprise. Because rookie Austin Seferian-Jenkins (back) and Luke Stocker (concussion) are also out of commission, D.J. Williams and Cameron Brate exist as Tampa Bay's sole healthy tight ends in Week 13.

Myers (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game against Cincinnati.

Myers didn't practice at all this week, so at a glance it's hard to see him playing Sunday. Austin Seferian-Jenkins (back) is also questionable for Sunday, but he seems like a better bet to play after practicing in a limited capacity all week. If either player sits, the Buccaneers might need to sign a tight end before Sunday.
