Buccaneers-Falcons Injury Report Nov. 20: JPP Sidelined with Knee Injury

The Buccaneers listed seven players on the first injury report of Week 12 ahead of their matchup with the Falcons in Atlanta.


The Buccaneers are getting set for their second-consecutive divisional contest as they go back on the road to take on the Falcons in Atlanta. The first injury report of the week saw seven players listed for Tampa Bay, four of which did not participate in any capacity.

The most notable of those players is outside linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul, who is dealing with a knee injury, per Head Coach Bruce Arians. Pierre-Paul had three tackles in Sunday's game against the Saints and has been a big contributor since his Week Eight return to action.

Also sitting out were right tackle Demar Dotson, who Arians said isn't injured, outside linebacker Anthony Nelson and cornerback M.J. Stewart.

The Bucs got some good news when outside linebacker Carl Nassib returned to practice in a limited capacity after suffering a setback to his groin injury last week that kept him out of his second consecutive game. Defensive lineman Will Gholston also participated in a limited capacity. Quarterback Jameis Winston, who suffered an ankle injury late in last Sunday's game against the Saints, was a full participant.

The Falcons had nine players listed, eight of which didn't participate. Most notably, quarterback Matt Ryan, wide receiver Julio Jones and running back Devonta Freeman were all sidelined. The Falcons pass rush seems to be hurting too with both Takkarist McKinley and Adrian Clayborn designated as DNP.
