The 6-4 Bucs made their final preparations on Friday as they get ready for Sunday’s big game against the 9-1 Falcons at Raymond James Stadium. It’s the first meeting of the season between the NFC South rivals. The Bucs are looking for their 5th win in a row.
Here’s the Bucs injury report: Safety Cody Grimm (hamstring) did not practice on Friday and is out. The good news is that CB Eric Wright (Achilles/ankle) and S Ahmad Black (illness) did practice on Friday. Wright is questionable for Sunday and head coach Greg Schiano says he’s taking a “wait and see approach”. Black is probable. DE Michael Bennett (shoulder), DE Aaron Morgan (shoulder) and WR Tiquan Underwood (head) are probable. LB Dekota Watson (hamstring) and CB Leonard Johnson (heel) were both added to the Friday practice report but both practiced in full and both are probable.
Notable injuries for the Falcons: WR Julio Jones (ankle), DT Peria Jerry (quad), CB Asante Samuel (shoulder) and LB Sean Weatherspoon (ankle) are questionable. Jones and Weatherspoon practiced on a limited basis on Friday. DE John Abraham (back), DT Jonathan Babineaux (neck), K Matt Bryant (back), RB Michael Turner (groin) and QB Matt Ryan (finger) are probable.
