Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New Orleans Saints Injury Report
ProFootballDoc Game Summary
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Injury News
The Buccaneers are hoping that Ronald Jones II will finally be able to return after a few weeks out with a finger injury, COVID and a quad issue. Should he sit out, Leonard Fournette can fill in as he has done successfully before and Ke’Shawn Vaughn will snaps as the second back, but it is worth noting that LeSean McCoy sat out last week as well.
Mike Evans returned from a knee hyperextension injury in a big way, with 119 yards versus Washington, and should be a full go moving forward.
The loss of Alex Cappa will hurt a line that is already compensating for the loss of A.Q. Shipley on the interior.
Devin White has been activated from Reserve/COVID, and while this is a huge boon, Kevin Minter has now been placed on the list and will miss next week.
New Orleans Saints Injury News
The Saints finally got Michael Thomas back after a rough year dealing with ankle and hamstring injuries. He had a good performance with 5 receptions for 73 yards and a score, but now Latavius Murray has popped up with an injury. The Saints’ power back hurt his thigh last week, and we’ll have to keep an eye on him.
The defense is in okay shape, but they will have to hope that edge rusher Trey Hendrickson can return from a neck injury and slot corner Patrick Robinson from his thigh injury.
