Buccaneers vs. Rams final injury report: Tavon Austin, Daryl Richardson questionable

Both the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and St. Louis Rams have a few injuries ahead of Sunday's game.

J. Meric

The St. Louis Rams are likely to be without wide receiver Tavon Austin and running back Daryl Richardson on Sunday. Neither player participated in practiced this week, and both are listed as questionable on the injury report. Richardson's absence shouldn't matter a lot, as the running back has been out since week eight and Zac Stacy has comfortably taken over the lead back role.

Austin's absence would be a bigger deal for the Rams. While he hasn't been a big part of the St. Louis offense, he brings an explosive, game-breaking element to the table, which is always useful -- especially for a struggling offense. Janoris Jenkins also missed Friday's practice, but the cornerback is listed as probable and should suit up for Sunday's game.

For the Buccaneers, Da'Quan Bowers will miss Sunday's game, which will hurt the team's pass rush packages, though not significantly so. Mark Barron's potential absence would be a much bigger deal, especially given the fact that the Rams' leading receiver is tight end Jared Cook.
