Bruce Arians says he's comfortable with CB Ross Cockrell if CB Jamel Dean (concussion) is unable to play in Week 12. What Arians was not comfortable with was the tackling in the secondary on Monday night.

Dean suffered a concussion during Monday’s game against the Los Angels Rams. He has been placed into the NFL’s concussion protocol. While the Bucs are hopeful that he will be available this week they are comfortable with the plan moving forward with the current roster.
