As expected, the Buccaneers have re-signed DB Logan Ryan. They released the vet earlier this week to leave room for C Ryan Jensen on the regular-season roster so he could be designated to return from IR. It looks like Ryan will come in behind S Antoine Winfield Jr. and S Mike Edwards in playing time.

The Buccaneers are releasing S Logan Ryan, but multiple reports say they expect to re-sign him. Tampa needs a spot on the regular-season roster for C Ryan Jensen so they can put him on IR but with eligibility to return during the year. Because Ryan is a veteran, he's not subject to waivers and can thus choose to wait and re-sign with the team. We'll watch to confirm, but we're expecting Ryan to return and start for the Bucs.

The Buccaneers grabbed DL Logan Hall with the 1st pick of Round 2 in the NFL Draft. Hall enjoyed a breakthrough final season at Houston, tallying 47 tackles, 13 tackles for loss and 6 sacks. At 6'6 and 285 pounds, Hall can play the edge and inside positions. He figures to play DE in Tampa Bay's 3-4 base defense and will likely be more of a tackle collector than big-play source for IDP leagues.

The Jets are signing former Buccaneers S Jordan Whitehead to a 2-year, $14.5 million deal, according to multiple reports. Whitehead spent most of the past 4 years in Tampa Bay's starting lineup, including all 44 of his appearances over the past 3 years. This money says he'll land in the starting lineup with his new team -- likely in place of Marcus Maye, who is also an unrestricted free agent after playing last season on the franchise tag. Whitehead has been a solid tackle collector with the Bucs and should be in a good spot for more of the same with the Jets. S Mike Edwards looks like the best current bet on Tampa Bay's roster to replace Whitehead. We'll see whether the Bucs make further moves at the position, though.

The Buccaneers expect to get RB Leonard Fournette back for the start of the playoffs, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Fournette has been out since Dec. 19 with a hamstring injury but reportedly did some running with trainers during this practice week. Tampa also reportedly expects to have LB Lavonte David (foot) ready for the playoffs.

Buccaneers S Antoine Winfield Jr. (foot) is active for today's game against the Jets, marking his return from 2 games down with a foot injury. CBs Jamel Dean and Sean Murphy-Bunting are also active, after arriving questionable.

Buccaneers S Antoine Winfield (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. Tampa Bay has ruled out EDGE Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder). That leaves the Bucs without both edge starters, as Shaq Barrett is already out for at least the rest of the regular season.

Buccaneers HC Bruce Arians says EDGE Shaq Barrett sprained the ACL and MCL in his right knee in Sunday's win over the Panthers. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Tampa hopes to get Barrett back for the playoffs. That means you can dump him from IDP redraft rosters.

Buccaneers HC Bruce Arians says EDGE Shaq Barrett suffered a "minor" MCL injury in Sunday's win over the Panthers, according to the team website. We'll see whether the injury threatens his Week 17 status.

Buccaneers CB Jamel Dean (illness) is active for today's game against the Panthers. As expected, EDGE Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) is out. He hit the weekend doubtful.

Buccaneers EDGE Jason Pierre-Paul is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Panthers with a shoulder injury.

The Buccaneers have ruled S Antoine Winfield Jr. out for Sunday's game against Carolina with his foot injury. It'll be Winfield's 2nd straight missed game. Mike Edwards -- back from his vaccination-card suspension with Antonio Brown -- figures to start in Winfield's spot next to Jordan Whitehead.

The Buccaneers on Thursday placed LB Lavonte David on IR with his foot injury. That means he'll miss the rest of the regular season and can be dropped in IDP leagues (if you didn't do so already). Kevin Minter is in line for full-time snaps next to Devin White.

The Buccaneers expect LB Lavonte David to miss the rest of the regular season after suffering a foot sprain in Sunday night's loss to the Saints, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. The team is reportedly "hopeful" that David can make it back during the playoffs. Kevin Minter will step up to a full-time role in the meantime.

Buccaneers LB Lavonte David left Sunday night's loss to the Saints in the 4th quarter with a foot injury. We'll see about the severity this week. His absence would push Kevin Minter into a full-time role.

Buccaneers S Antoine Winfield (foot) is inactive for tonight's game against the Saints. S Jordan Whitehead (calf) is active after missing the previous 2 games.

Buccaneers S Antoine Winfield (foot) and S Jordan Whitehead (calf) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints. Winfield looks very iffy after putting in only 1 limited practice. Whitehead closed out the week with a full Friday after 2 limited days. He missed the past 2 games.

Buccaneers CB Jamel Dean (concussion) and DE William Gholston (wrist, knee) are active for today's game against the Bills.
