The Buccaneers have ruled out just two players in advance of their Divisional Round matchup at home against the Los Angeles Rams. Running back Ronald Jones is sideline again and wide receiver Breshad Perriman is dealing with a hip injury and did not practice all week.
The bigger question has been the health of the Bucs' offensive line after both center Ryan Jensen and right tackle Tristan Wirfs suffered ankle injuries last week against the Eagles. Both practiced in a limited capacity on Friday, with Head Coach Bruce Arians specifying they only participated in individual drills. The team didn't want to risk anything incidental like them getting tripped in team drills so they were held out of that portion. It's a good sign and certainly in the right direction of both playing on Sunday.
The Bucs will need all the help they can get against a very formidable Rams defense, including a physical front that includes not only Aaron Donald now, but also Von Miller.
However, the same can be said for the Buccaneers' defense, which boasts one of the best front sevens in the league. All original 11 starters will take the field together for the first time since Week One, provided cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting and outside linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul, dealing with some personal matters, do indeed play. He's officially listed along with Jensen and Wirfs as questionable.
The Bucs aren't the only ones dealing with offensive line injuries, either. The Rams ruled out left tackle Andrew Whitworth and safety Taylor Rapp. Running back Buddy Powell is also doubtful.
