The Bucs clinched a playoff spot last week against the Lions and will look to officially claim the No. 5 seed with a win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Tampa Bay released its first injury report of the week and overall, things look good. Carlton Davis III and Ronald Jones II were both limited participants, which puts them on track to play Sunday.

“I thought ‘Ro’ (Jones II) looked good learning how to handle that hand,” Bruce Arians told reporters after practice. “[He] caught the ball OK. Carlton got better and better. We’ll take it slow – day-to-day. He got limited participation, but he looked OK.”

Tom Brady didn’t practice, but Greg Auman of The Athletic confirmed that Wednesday was simply a maintenance day for Tampa Bay’s quarterback.

Atlanta’s injury report is a bit of a different story. Julio Jones and Darquez Dennard highlight the list of those who didn’t practice Wednesday. They were joined by wide receiver Brandon Powell and defensive lineman Charles Harris. The Falcons saw a total of 13 players land on Wednesday’s report.
