Buccaneers DE Jason Pierre-Paul (knee, shoulder) is active for today's game against the Falcons after arriving questionable. DE Carl Nassib is inactive, as expected. A shoulder injury rendered him doubtful.
Buccaneers DE Jason Pierre-Paul (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. He has played through multiple questionable tags this season, and we'd bet on him playing in the finale. DE Carl Nassib, on the other hand, is doubtful for Sunday because of a shoulder injury.
Buccaneers LB Adarius Taylor is inactive for today's game at Baltimore for personal reasons. That leaves an already depleted Bucs LB corps even thinner. Tampa will, at least, have DE Jason Pierre-Paul. He's active despite another questionable tag and is OK for normal IDP usage. S Isaiah Johnson (concussion) is also active after hitting the weekend questionable. He'll start in place of Justin Evans.
The Buccaneers have ruled S Justin Evans (toe) out for the 2nd straight game. S Isaiah Johnson (concussion) would fill in, if he can play. He's questionable, though, after missing Week 14. Johnson progressed from missing practice Wednesday to limited Thursday and then a full Friday workout. DE Jason Pierre-Paul (knee, hip) is also questionable but has been playing through questionable tags for weeks. LB Adarius Taylor is also suddenly questionable for the game. He has a personal matter that may draw him away from the game. Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times tweeted Friday that it is "likely related" to the impending birth of Taylor's child (though he oddly did so without confirmation). We'll check on the status of all these questionable players Sunday morning.
The Buccaneers have ruled S Justin Evans (toe) out for Sunday's game against the Saints. DE Jason Pierre-Paul (knee) is questionable. He missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning to a limited Friday workout. That marked a downgrade from his participation level last week with the same injury. We'll check JPP's status Sunday morning. The issue plus the poor sack matchup with New Orleans make him much more of a "sit" candidate than usual.
