Giants-Buccaneers Injury Report Nov. 19: Pierre-Paul, Nuñez-Roches, Delaney Limited, Brady Non-Participant

The Buccaneers downgraded Jason Pierre-Paul to a limited participant, while adding Tom Brady, Steve McLendon and Rakeem Nuñez-Roches to their Friday report.


The Buccaneers had a few changes at practice on Friday. Quarterback Tom Brady and defensive tackle Steve McLendon were added to the report and did not practice – but only because they were given veteran days off. Their designations are not injury related.

In actual injury news, outside linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul was downgraded to a limited participant after practicing fully on Thursday. Pierre-Paul is still dealing with a torn rotator cuff and broken finger but said he's feeling better ahead of the matchup with his former team. Defensive tackle Rakeem Nuñez-Roches was added to the report on Friday as well, revealing an ankle injury that limited him in practice. This is a bit concerning considering defensive tackle Vita Vea, who was injured in Washington and has been a non-participant in practice all week, isn't likely to play Monday night and it'd be Nuñez-Roches that would see an increased workload as his fill-in.

Cornerback Dee Delaney is still in concussion protocol but he returned to the field on Friday, practicing in a limited capacity.

The Giants added defensive back Logan Ryan to their report. He did not participate on Friday due to COVID-19 protocols. New York also upgraded tight end Kaden Smith, who was a non-participant on Thursday. He practiced in a limited capacity on Friday.
