Buccaneers vs. Falcons injury report: Mounting Tampa Bay injuries on defense

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are gaining momentum, but injuries threaten to slow the team down against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12.


As the Tampa Bay Buccaneers prepare to face the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12, the Wednesday injury report shows some areas of concern for the Bucs' pass rush. If Tampa Bay wants to contain Matt Ryan, they'll need their best effort from Michael Bennett and Aaron Morgan, both of whom are listed with shoulder injuries. Bennett was limited and Morgan participated fully.

On Atlanta's side, wide receiver Julio Jones officially did not practice but did participate in the team walkthrough. Ryan was listed on the report but was a full participant in practice.
