Both the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons have been ravaged by injury so far this season, but as they enter Sunday’s matchup, the players on their active roster appear to be getting a bit healthier.

Here is the Bucs’ injury report, courtesy of the team’s official website.

NAME POS INJURY STATUS
Adams, Michael CB Knee Probable
Barron, Mark S Knee Probable
Bowers, Da’Quan DE Concussion Questionable
Gorrer, Danny CB Groin Probable
Jackson, Vincent WR Knee Probable
Joseph, Davin G Knee Probable
Nicks, Carl G Foot Out
Owusu, Chris WR Foot Questionable
Penn, Donald T Calf Probable
Spence, Akeem DT Wrist Probable

 

The Buccaneers will have almost every starter they’d expect to have this week, with backup defensive end Da’Quan Bowers and backup wide receiver Chris Owusu the only players listed as lower than probable.

Dashon Goldson is not even listed on the report, and other injured defensive backs Michael Adams, Mark Barron, and Danny Gorrer are all seemingly ready to go for the game against the Falcons.

The offensive line also seems to be healthy, apart from Carl Nicks, who remains on the active roster despite recovering from surgery to remove MRSA from his foot.

Here is the Atlanta injury report, as found on the Falcons’ official site.

NAME POS INJURY STATUS
Douglas, Harry WR Knee Questionable
Gonzalez, Tony TE Toe Questionable
Goodman, Malliciah DE Calf Out
Jackson, Steven RB Toe Probable
Jerry, Peria DT Toe Questionable
Peters, Corey DT Knee Questionable
Snelling, Jason RB Knee -
Weatherspoon, Sean LB Foot Probable
White, Roddy WR Shoulder Probable

 

The Falcons are healthier than they seemed to be earlier in the week, with Harry Douglas and Tony Gonzalez listed as questionable despite limited practice time. They also are likely to have the services of Roddy White and Steven Jackson, who both had injuries reported this week.
