The Bucs are getting healthier for the final game of the season.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers look to get some firepower back for their final game of the season, when they face the New Orleans Saints. Wide receiver DeSean Jackson and defensive end Robert Ayers have practiced the past two days, albeit in limited fashion. It seems likely that both will play on Sunday.

A few other players aren’t so lucky, though. Wide receiver Chris Godwin has missed the past two days of practice, as has linebacker Devante Bond. Playing on Sunday will be a long shot for them. Tight end Cameron Brate missed yesterday’s practice and was limited today, so his participation is in doubt as well.

As for the Saints, who can win the division by beating the Bucs on Sunday, their main injured player is tackle Terron Armstead, who’s missed the past two days and will probably not suit up on Sunday. They have a few more limited players, but every significant starter should be able to suit up for them.
