The Buccaneers have been bitten by the injury bug hard towards the back end of the 2021 season but as they face a familiar opponent for the regular season finale, they've ruled out five total players. Most notably, outside linebackers Shaq Barrett and Jason Pierre-Paul will sit out their second-straight game while running back Ronald Jones will also not play. Cornerback Rashard Robinson and wide receiver Justin Watson were also ruled out.
Cornerback Richard Sherman is doubtful while center Ryan Jensen is questionable with a shoulder injury suffered in last Sunday's game at MetLife Stadium.
As bad as that all sounds, Head Coach Bruce Arians provided some hope after practice for the Bucs' postseason.
"Hopefully, we'll have almost everybody back defensively next week, so we'll wait and see how that goes," Let's win this week and set a franchise record for a number of wins because it's a big goal, man. 13 wins is huge."
