The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have to play another game without running back Doug Martin, as he’s been ruled out for Sunday when the Bucs take on the Oakland Raiders.
That means Jacquizz Rodgers will get his third consecutive start, after being highly productive the past couple of games. Peyton Barber and Antone Smith will be the backups.
The Bucs will likely have Robert Ayers return to play for the first time since week two, though. Ayers is listed as questionable, and practiced every day for the past week, and was not limited in practice today.
The Bucs ruled out defensive tackle Clinton McDonald, but Gerald McCoy is likely to play, after returning from injury last Sunday. McCoy was limited in practice the past couple of days.
As for the Raiders, they’ll be without starting defensive tackle Stacy McGee, who was unable to practice this week. A few other players are listed as questionable, but none of them are expected to miss Sunday’s game.
