Bucs HC Bruce Arians said Monday that he'll play his starters in Sunday's finale vs. the Panthers. Tampa has clinched the NFC South but can move from the #3 seed to #2 with a win and a Rams loss to the 49ers. "You play to win," Arians said. "You play to get that second seed, that’s huge. We’re not resting anybody. We’re playing to win.”

Bucs HC Bruce Arians said after Sunday's win over the Jets that WR Antonio Brown's time with the Bucs is over. That's not a surprise after Brown removed his jersey and left the field in the middle of the 3rd quarter. But it's still a massive loss for a Bucs offense that is also without WR Chris Godwin for the rest of the season. That leaves Breshad Perriman, Cyril Grayson and Tyler Johnson as the top WRs behind Mike Evans. Evans and TE Rob Gronkowski should be the focal points of the passing game in Week 18 and the playoffs.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (ankle) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. HC Bruce Arians said afterward that Brown "probably" won't play vs. the Falcons this weekend. It's disappointing news after Arians said last week that he was "hopeful" to get Brown back for this one. Brown should stay stashed on fantasy benches as we continue to monitor his rehab. His absence is good news for Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Rob Gronkowski.

Bucs TE Rob Gronkowski (back) is active for tonight's game vs. the Giants. He's played just 6 snaps since Week 3, so he's a risk/reward fantasy play.

The Bucs are "optimistic" about TE Rob Gronkowski's chances of playing vs. the Bears tonight, according to The Athletic's Greg Auman. Gronk was a full-go in practice on Thursday and Friday before sitting out on Saturday. He and HC Bruce Arians were optimistic about Gronkowski's status throughout the week. We'll get the Bucs' inactives around 7 pm ET tonight.

Bucs TE Rob Gronkowski (back) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Giants. After putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday, he didn't practice at all on Saturday. It's unclear if that was a planned day off or a setback. HC Bruce Arians called Gronk a game-time decision, along with the rest of the Bucs' "questionable" players. It's a tough spot for fantasy owners with the Monday kickoff. We'll look for further updates on Gronkowski's status.

Bucs TE Rob Gronkowski (back) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. That puts him on track to return for Monday night's game vs. the Giants. Gronk lasted just 6 snaps when he last tried to return back in Week 8, so he checks in as a risk/reward Week 11 fantasy play.

Bucs TE Rob Gronkowski (back) is out for Sunday's game vs. Washington. HC Bruce Arians said earlier this week that Gronk is 2-3 weeks away from being back to 100%. TEs Cameron Brate and O.J. Howard have basically been splitting work with Gronkowski out, leaving them both as just TE2s.

Bucs HC Bruce Arians said in Thursday radio interview that TE Rob Gronkowski "in about 2 or 3 weeks will be back to normal." Arians also said, "I doubt it" when asked if Gronk will be able to play vs. Washington this weekend. He remains worth stashing on fantasy benches, but don't plan on having Gronkowski in Week 10 or 11 lineups.

Bucs TE Rob Gronkowski (back) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Bruce Arians has seemed to suggest so far this week that Gronk won't be available for Sunday's game vs. Washington. We'll continue to keep an eye on him, but fantasy owners shouldn't be planning on having Gronkowski in Week 10 lineups.

Bucs HC Bruce Arians said Monday that he's not sure if TE Rob Gronkowski (ribs, back) will be ready for this weekend's game vs. Washington. Gronk tried to return in Week 8, prior to the Week 9 bye, but lasted just 6 snaps. We'll update his status throughout the week.

Bucs TE Rob Gronkowski was ruled out at halftime of Sunday's game vs. the Saints with back spasms. This is seemingly unrelated to the rib injury that had Gronk sidelined the previous 5 weeks. He'll get a Week 9 bye to hopefully get healthy.

Bucs TE Rob Gronkowski (ribs) is active for today’s game against the Saints. HC Bruce Arians reportedly told Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer that Gronk will only be used in “emergency situations” today. It’s unclear exactly what that means -- but it doesn’t sound like Gronk will be on the field much.

Bucs HC Bruce Arians told FOX's Jay Glazer that he only plans to use TE Rob Gronkowski (ribs) in "emergency situations" vs. the Saints today. Gronk should be on fantasy benches.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Buccaneers TE Rob Gronkowski is "considered a game-time decision" for today's game against the Saints. "One source described optimism" for Gronk's chances of playing, Rapoport adds.

Bucs TE Rob Gronkowski (ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Saints after a limited week of practice. We’re expecting Gronk back for this one, but stay tuned to Shark Bites for further updates.

Bucs TE Rob Gronkowski (ribs) was upgraded to full participation in Thursday's practice. He's on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Saints. Gronk opened the season with 8-90-2 and 4-39-2 lines before getting hurt in Week 3.

Bucs TE Rob Gronkowski (ribs) was back on the practice field on Wednesday, per The Athletic's Greg Auman. We'll check on Gronk's participation level this afternoon, but he at least has a chance to return for Sunday's game vs. the Saints

Update: Gronkowski was officially limited in practice.
