Buccaneers-Falcons Injury Report, Oct. 12: Carlton Davis Now Battling Back Injury and Listed as Questionable

For the second game in a row, the Buccaneers have a late injury addition for a defensive back but both Beau Allen and O.J. Howard could see action on Sunday.


After the most healthy week of practice the Bucs have had so far this season, they'll be going into Sunday's contest at Atlanta with a few question marks. Cornerback Marcus Williams is the only Buccaneer to be ruled out but cornerback Carlton Davis now has a back injury added on to the groin injury he's been battling these past couple weeks.

This marks the second rookie defensive back in a row for the Buccaneers to have an additional injury added on late in the week. Safety Jordan Whitehead missed the game against Chicago in Week Four after tweaking his hamstring in addition to the shoulder injury that has limited him the past few weeks. The good news there is that hamstring injury was taken off the report and Whitehead is listed as questionable for this Sunday along with Davis. The Buccaneers could potentially see defensive tackle Beau Allen back, though with his questionable listing it may be in a limited capacity. It could be all the Bucs need now that the defensive line is completely healthy otherwise for the first time this season.

Most noteworthy for Atlanta is that both running back Devonta Freeman and defensive tackle Grady Jarrett have been ruled out for Sunday's game. That's a welcomed status update for the Bucs after Freeman had a 126-yard, two touchdown performance against Tampa Bay in their last meeting during Week 15 of 2017.
