Buccaneers-Falcons Injury Report Nov. 21: JPP Returns to Practice

Thursday’s injury report brought good news for the Buccaneers, who got two players, including JPP, back to practice.


The number of Buccaneers that didn't practice dropped from four to two on Thursday as Tampa Bay saw the return on both outside linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul and right tackle Demar Dotson. Pierre-Paul has been dealing with a knee issue since the Bucs' home game against the Saints this past Sunday and missed practice on Wednesday. He returned in a limited capacity on Thursday along with Dotson, who returned to full participation after resting on Wednesday.

The Falcons, who have some prominent names on their injury report this week, also got some good news when both quarterback Matt Ryan and wide receiver Julio Jones returned to practice in a full capacity after sitting out Wednesday. Pass rusher Adrian Clayborn also returned in a limited role, among others.
