Eagles-Buccaneers Injury Report Jan. 12: OLBs Shaq Barrett, Jason Pierre-Paul Return to Practice

The Bucs got some good news on defense on Wednesday’s injury report.


The Buccaneers held their normal walk-through practice on Wednesday, beginning their first day of on-field prep for the postseason. There was some good news as both outside linebackers Shaq Barrett and Jason Pierre-Paul returned to practice after missing the last two games with injury.

That should help solidify an ailing defense if they are healthy enough to play on Sunday against the Eagles at home. The Bucs have uncharacteristically given up more yards on the ground the last few weeks missing not only Barrett and Pierre-Paul but also defensive lynchpin Lavonte David. The inside linebacker entered the 21-day designated to return window on Wednesday, meaning he can hop off injured reserve at any time. Running backs Leonard Fournette and Giovani Bernard were also activated in the same capacity.

The Eagles are dealing with injuries of their own, most notably to quarterback Jalen Hurts. He was a full participant though on Wednesday.
