Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians said that center Ryan Jensen and right tackle Tristan Wirfs are both going to be game-time decisions for Sunday’s game against the Rams and they have company in the questionable category this weekend.

Linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul remained out of practice for the third straight day on Friday due to a personal matter.

He is joined in the questionable group by wide receiver Cyril Grayson and cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting. Grayson missed last weekend with a hamstring injury and Murphy-Bunting sat out with a shoulder injury.

The Buccaneers ruled out running back Ronald Jones for the second straight week with an ankle injury. Leonard Fournette could be activated from injured reserve in time to play against the Rams. Ke'Shawn Vaughn and Gio Bernard are the other backfield options.

Wide receiver Breshad Perriman (hip, abdomen) has also been ruled out.

  1. Calling Dr. Hawkeye Pierce! The Bucs are officially a MASH unit. With all their pieces in place they easily bully the Rams, but in pieces like they are? It’s gonna be tough. Especially if Wirfs is out and Jensen is not 100%. With a suspect secondary and missing depth up front? No Ronald Jones and a maybe Leonard Fournette? This is going to need to be a Superman performance from TB12. But even more? Some kinda voodoo from Todd Bowles to slow down the Rams.

  2. Jensen will play. If JPP and TW are out, we are toast! Not even TB12 can will his way through this game. I don’t see how this game stays within 17 points. I’m hoping this is gamesmanship, but if it is not and these guys can’t go it will be the worst game of the weekend. Rams 34 Bucs 10.

  3. “Due to a personal matter”

    Dang, I hope everything is okay. JPP is a true warrior, so I imagine this must be serious.
