Grimes posted eight tackles (seven solo) -- including one for loss -- one interception and another pass defensed in Sunday's 38-33 loss to the Cardinals.
Grimes' tackle total led the Bucs and also served as a season high. The veteran cornerback picked off his first pass of the season in the third quarter when he snagged a throw intended for J.J. Nelson at the Tampa 19-yard line. Despite the impressive final line, Grimes still had a part to play in quarterback Carson Palmer completing a whopping 81.8 percent of his passes Sunday, and he also appeared to be trailing Larry Fitzgerald on his 11-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter. Grimes continues to offer a fairly high fantasy upside with respect to interceptions, with the occasional high-tackle output an added bonus.
Grimes (shoulder) logged five tackles (all solo) and three passes defensed in Sunday's 25-23 win over the Giants.
The veteran corner was in on 79 of 80 snaps, so his previously ailing shoulder wasn't an issue. Grimes also got his hands on the ball for the first time this season while helping limit Eli Manning to a modest 5.9 yards per attempt and Giants pass catchers to 9.6 yards per reception. Grimes figures to play a pivotal role once again in Week 5 as the Bucs attempt to slow down a diverse, Tom Brady-led Patriots attack.
Grimes (shoulder) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Giants.
Grimes practiced fully all week so the questionable tag may have just been cautionary. The veteran corner is likely to see a fair amount of Odell Beckham in their matchup with the Giants.
Grimes (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants, Jenna Laine of ESPN reports.
Grimes was a full participant in practice all week, so his questionable tag raises eyebrows. We think he'll ultimately suit up Sunday, when he'll be the Buccaneers' best chance of slowing down Giants wideout Odell Beckham.
Grimes (shoulder) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice and is gearing up for Sunday's game against the Giants, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Grimes has only played in one game in Week 2 against the Bears, where he logged six solo tackles. He'll return to his starting cornerback position, and he'll need to contribute by helping slow down Giants' receiver Odell Beckham.
