The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will take the field at the Mercedes Benz Dome to take on the New Orleans Saints in the divisional round of the playoffs. With the starting running back Ronald Jones II dealing with a quad injury last week, it seems as he has overcome the injury and will be active this evening. Here’s your inactives report for the Buccaneers:
— Tampa Bay Buccaneers (@Buccaneers) January 17, 2021
Rookie running back Ke’Shawn is inactive today pointing to Jones’ return. Unlike last week, running back LeSean McCoy is healthy from a sickness against Washington. Defensive lineman Jeremiah Ledbetter is out with an injury and safety Javon Hagan, who was elevated from the practice squad this week, is inactive.
On the New Orleans side of the ball gadget quarterback Taysom Hill highlights the list of inactives.
Joining Hill is running back Latavius Murray as an inactive. The Saints will have to rely solely on Drew Brees at quarterback, which could change their offense immensely. With Murray inactive tonight, the load is solely on Alvin Kamara as their go-to back.
The Buccaneers kickoff against the Saints tonight at 6:40 pm eastern time with a chance to travel to Green Bay next week to take on the Green Bay Packers for the NFC Championship. Stay tuned to BucsReport.com for all your Buccaneers news and analysis.
