Bucs RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) is officially active for today's Divisional Round game vs. the Rams. He's joined in the backfield by Gio Bernard and Ke'Shawn Vaughn.

Bucs RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) has been activated from IR. That puts him on track to play in Sunday's Divisional Round game vs. the Rams. Fournette has been sidelined since Week 15, which adds some uncertainty to his role. But we're expecting him to return as Tampa's lead back. RB Le'Veon Bell was waived to make room for Fournette.

Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) participated in Thursday's practice -- the 1st non-walkthrough of the week -- according to multiple reports. We won't get an official participation level on him because Fournette is still officially on IR, so we'll have to watch the reports on him into the weekend. Tampa Bay will need to activate him by Saturday afternoon to make the RB eligible to play Sunday against the Rams. HC Bruce Arians said early in the week that Fournette hadn't yet been able to run at top speed without feeling his nagging hamstring. Fournette's availability, of course, will affect the roles of Ke'Shawn Vaughn, Le'Veon Bell and Giovani Bernard. RB Ronald Jones (ankle) remained out of practice Wednesday and Thursday and seems to be trending toward missing another game.

The Athletic's Greg Auman calls Bucs RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) a "question mark" for Sunday's Divisional Round game after listening to HC Bruce Arians' Monday press conference. Arians said that he'll need to see whether Fournette is able to go full speed in practice this week, per Auman. Unfortunately, we won't get practice reports on Fournette because he remains on IR. Tampa will need to activate him by 4 pm ET on Saturday if he's going to play Sunday.

The Buccaneers are not activating RB Leonard Fournette from IR ahead of Sunday's game against the Eagles. That means Tampa Bay will go with a backfield of Ke'Shawn Vaughn, Le'Veon Bell and Giovani Bernard, whom the team did activate Saturday. Fournette seems likely to make it back from his hamstring injury for the Divisional Round -- assuming the Bucs beat Philadelphia, of course.

Bucs HC Bruce Arians labeled RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) a game-time decision for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Eagles. Fournette was designated to return from IR on Wednesday, but he doesn't appear on this week's injury report because he hasn't been placed on the active roster yet. That'll happen by 4 pm ET on Saturday if Fournette is going to be eligible to play Sunday. For what it's worth, The Athletic's Greg Auman expects Fournette to play and start vs. the Eagles based on how he looked in practice this week. We'll look for further updates on Fournette and will get the Bucs' inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday. RB Ronald Jones (ankle) has been ruled out. LB Lavonte David (foot) has also been called a game-time decision.

The Bucs designated RBs Leonard Fournette (hamstring) and Gio Bernard (knee, hip) to return from IR. Both guys are eligible to return to practice and appear on track to play in Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Eagles. We'll monitor their practice participation this week. Assuming they're healthy, Fournette should step back into a workhorse role, with Bernard mixing in for a few passing-down snaps.

Bucs HC Bruce Arians said Wednesday that RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) is on track to return for the playoffs. As long as that hammy is right, Fournette should step back into the role that fed him 13.2 carries and 5.9 targets over the first 13 games of the season.

Bucs RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) has been placed on IR. This knocks him out for the rest of the regular season, so Fournette can be dropped from all redraft rosters.

Bucs RB Leonard Fournette's hamstring injury is not "major," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, but he could miss "a game or two." It sounds like we should at least expect Fournette to miss this weekend's game vs. the Panthers. We'll see if he can make it back for Week 17's tilt with the Jets. Ronald Jones will operate as Tampa's clear lead ball-carrier for however long Fournette is out, but it's worth noting that he lost some passing-down to RB Ke'Shawn Vaughn in the loss to the Saints.
