The Tampa Bay Buccaneers avoided the possibility of not having their specialists for this week’s game against the Atlanta Falcons. But they don’t have to worry any longer.

According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, the Bucs should have punter Bradley Pinion, kicker Ryan Succop, and long snapper Zach Triner ready to play on Sunday.

Succop is one of the top scoring kickers in the league with 110 points in 2020 so far. Pinion has also kicked well aside from punting the football as he leads the league for the most touchbacks on kickoffs with 67.

Running back Ronald Jones II was placed the Reserved/COVID-19 list Wednesday.
