Head coach Dirk Koetter said Peyton Barber (ankle) and DE Jason Pierre-Paul are “good to go” for Sunday’s game.
Looking back at Week 7, the Buccos used a nearly even snap split between Barber, Ronald Jones and old friend Jacquizz Rodgers (37%, 31%, 32% respectively). As usual, none of the options were effective, as all three failed to manage even 3.0 yards-per-carry and only caught two total passes in a game Jameis Winston threw the ball 32 times. On the season, the Bucs rank 29th in total touchdowns, 31st in rushing attempts and yards per carry and dead last in rushing yards, receiving yards, receptions and rushing touchdowns. We'd suggest avoiding the situation unless you are utterly desperate.
