With an extra week to get healthy and practice before Super Bowl LV, only two Buccaneers remain questionable for their Super Bowl matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs. The extra time off gave a few Buccaneers some extra time to get healthy. Greg Auman tweeted the Buccaneers’ final injury report below:

As reported earlier today, tight end Cameron Brate and wide receiver Antonio Brown remain questionable for the Super Bowl in Tampa Bay. Reports have been that both players are trending towards playing Sunday night. Brate was a late injury addition a few days ago with a back injury and Brown was being monitored for any swelling on his knee.
As for the rest of the Buccaneers who had sustained injuries a few weeks ago, they all seem healthy and ready to play Sunday. That includes starting safeties Antoine Winfield Jr. and Jordan Whitehead. The Kansas City Chiefs will get a very healthy Buccaneers team in Super Bowl LV.
The Chiefs have ruled out tackle Eric Fisher (Achilles) and linebacker Willie Gay (Knee/ Ankle) for Sunday’s matchup. Wide receiver Sammy Watkins is the only questionable player for the Chiefs. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network has reported that he is “optimistic” about taking the field on Sunday.
The #Chiefs ruled out LT Eric Fisher (Achilles) and LB Willie Gay (knee) — both of whom had season-ending surgeries already but haven’t been placed on IR. WR Sammy Watkins (calf) had a full practice but is listed as questionable. He said he’s “optimistic” about playing.

Outside of Sammy Watkins, the Chiefs look to be healthy as can be without their starting left and right tackles. History will be on the line for Tampa Bay with Patrick Mahomes and company standing in their way.
