The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are not the healthiest team entering their Week 6 clash against the Pittsburgh Steelers. This may be a matchup the Buccaneers are favored by 10 points per FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds, but the team already ruled out three key defenders for Sunday.

On Saturday, Tampa Bay revealed another surprising addition to the injury report.

Linebacker Shaq Barrett joined the long list of Buccaneers players on the injury report Saturday. He's been ruled officially questionable for Sunday's contest, and according to team insider Jenna Laine, Barrett is dealing with an unspecified illness.

Barrett has been a force for Tampa Bay's dominant pass-rush. He ranks third on the team with 2.0 sacks and third with 3 tackles for loss. He's also forced one fumble and laid 5 hits on opposing QBs.

Buccaneers fans will want to pay close attention to Barrett's status ahead of Sunday's 1 p.m. kickoff. Much unlike some other sports, all 32 teams have a chance at winning every single Sunday even if the betting markets project a blowout win.
