Again for the Bucs, it looks like every man is up. The one guy we are going to keep an eye on is Ayers. We talked during the week about the impact that he had in just one week. Hopefully he will be ready to go on Sunday, but as always, we will monitor.

There are a few names to watch here. Fitzgerald was limited once again, but don’t get too excited until the inactives come out on Sunday. Veterans don’t need a lot of practice time and we know that Fitz is a gamer. Evan Mathis returned to practice, but Tyrann Matheiu was on the report for the first time. He will be a big loss in the secondary if he can’t play.
