The Buccaneers will be without a few for their Wild Card game
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had several players battling injuries before their Wild Card game Monday night. The Buccaneers will play the Dallas Cowboys a little shorthanded this week. The Buccaneers have been dealing with injuries all season, a large factor in why they won the NFC South with a losing record.
According to the Buccaneers’ injury report on Saturday, offensive guard Nick Leverett and tight end Kyle Rudolph did not participate in Saturday’s practice and are doubtful for Monday night. That’s not promising for their availability in the Wild Card game. The Buccaneers listed nine players as questionable against the Cowboys.
- CB Carlton Davis, shoulder
- S Mike Edwards, hip
- C Robert Hainsey, hamstring
- OL John Molchon, ankle
- OLB Carl Nassib, pectoral
- S Keanu Neal, hip
- S Logan Ryan, knee
- OT Donovan Smith, foot
- NT Vita Vea, calf
According to Brianna Dix, who covers the Buccaneers, head coach Todd Bowles said recently that no players had been ruled out for the game. They’ll make their decision for the starting offensive lineup on Monday.
We’ll have a better idea of the Buccaneers’ plans when they announce elevations and promotions.
