The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have posted their final injury report ahead of Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons. The practice has concluded and it has become clear who will play and who will not. With some question marks to a certain position group.

The addition of starting corner Carlton Davis is a big storyline for this week. With the loss of Sean Murphy-Bunting to a dislocated elbow suffered last week, the corner depth for the Buccaneers is very thin. Although, Carlton Davis is expected to play, having him on the report is concerning.
Jason Pierre-Paul is dealing with a hand injury and has not practiced the past two days. His status for the game is unclear, however, missing the past two days is not a good sign. If Pierre-Paul cannot go, rookie defensive end Joe Tryon will get extended reps.
The Buccaneers’ defensive backfield will be getting some reinforcements. Starting safety Jordan Whitehead is returning from his hamstring injury and will play. His return should help tremendously.
