Sims was placed on injury reserve earlier in the season and was able to return earlier this week. The Buccaneers are only allowed to allow one player to return from the injury reserve, and Sims was the best choice. The second part of last season’s dual ground threat returns to find his space occupied by Jacquizz Rodgers. It will be interesting to see what role Sims will play in Sunday’s game. His explosive capability has surely been missed.
Donteea Dye will definitely find himself useful in Sunday’s game as the Buccaneers are thin in receiver depth.
To make room for these moves center Josh Allen and DT John Hughes have been waived.
