Buccaneers-Falcons Injury Report Nov. 22: Anthony Nelson, M.J. Stewart Only Players Ruled Out for Tampa Bay

The last injury report of Week 12 revealed that the Bucs will be without outside linebacker Anthony Nelson and cornerback M.J. Stewart but should go into Atlanta relatively healthy.


After wearing a little thin at the outside linebacker spot, the Bucs get good news on Friday as both Jason Pierre-Paul and Carl Nassib are expected to play Sunday in Atlanta. Outside linebacker Anthony Nelson still remains sidelined and has been ruled out along with cornerback M.J. Stewart.

The front-seven will be full tilt against an Atlanta team that will be without the likes of tight end Austin Hooper and now running back Devonta Freeman. Though both quarterback Matt Ryan and wide receiver Julio Jones appeared on the injury report this week, both players practiced fully for the second straight day on Friday. Defensive ends Takk McKinley and John Cominsky, as well as cornerback Kendall Sheffield were officially listed as questionable
