After the Bucs’ loss to the Jaguars, Bruce Arians chastises the Bucs’ receivers.

On offense, head coach Bruce Arians expects a little bit more from his secondary options.

Following the Buccaneers’ 29-19 loss to the Washington Redskins, Arians is demanding more from the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.

In the absence of Antonio Brown, the No. 3 wide receiver position will be filled.

Brown’s absence, along with the absence of starting tight end Rob Gronkowski, was clearly a factor in the team’s Week 10 loss.

During the Week 10 loss, Jaelon Dardon and Tyler Johnson combined for just four receptions for 46 yards.

This season, Brown had an average of 5.8 receptions and 83.6 receiving yards per game.

Brown has four touchdown receptions in five games.

While Dardon and Johnson don’t have the same skill set as Brown, they will be expected to contribute more in the absence of both Brown (foot) and Scotty Miller (turf toe).
