Buccaneers-Saints Injury Report Oct. 29: Antonio Brown Ruled Out

The Bucs have ruled out just one player ahead of their divisional matchup with the Saints in New Orleans.

The Buccaneers will be without wide receiver Antonio Brown in New Orleans on Sunday. Brown was the only player ruled out for Tampa Bay, while five players were given questionable designations.

The most promising of those players actually seems to be inside linebacker Lavonte David, who practiced in a full capacity on Friday for the first time since he was injured in the Miami game during Week Five. He'll go a long way in the sideline-to-sideline battle the Bucs will face with Saints running back Alvin Kamara on the opposite side.

Head Coach Bruce Arians said Friday that Rob Gronkowski, Richard Sherman and Dee Delaney all have chances to play. Arians said earlier in the week that he expected Jason Pierre-Paul to play in New Orleans despite not practicing during the week, which Pierre-Paul himself confirmed. He followed the same model ahead of the Bears game, electing to take mental reps at practice as he works through a broken finger and torn labrum. Pierre-Paul also mentioned how excited he is to get after former teammate Jameis Winston on Sunday.

Winston won't have help from gadget quarterback Taysom Hill, who was ruled out along with three others, including guard Andrus Peat, for New Orleans. Wide receiver Deonte Harris is questionable and after participating fully all week, cornerback Marshon Lattimore will resume his battle with Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans on Sunday.
