The Tampa Bay BuccaneersYou can continue to be healthier during this most important time of year.
Linebacker Shaquil Bart was removed from COVID’s list. Lavonte David, running back Leonard Fournette, and Giovani Bernard were all designated to be activated from injured reserve one day later. They must all be activated within 21 days.
As Tampa Bay prepares to face Philadelphia in Sunday’s wild card game, it will be hoping that they return soon.
Bruce Arians, coach of David, said that it was a “huge addition” if he could be reintroduced.
Fournette (hamstring), and David (foot), both went on IR Dec. 23 with the expectation of returning for a playoff run. These two veterans were key contributors to the Super Bowl team last year and could be expected to continue their contributions this year. Bernard, who missed four games due to hip and knee injuries, was a valuable receiving option in the backfield his first year with Bucs.
Arians said wideout Cyril Grayson (hamstring) and running back Ronald Jones (ankle) are doubtful to play against the Eagles.
