The Buccaneers were missing a key component to their pass rush from practice during the week, but outside linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul was upgraded to full participation on Friday.
Left tackle Donovan Smith and wide receivers Scotty Miller and Chris Godwin also practiced Friday and will play on Sunday. Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh appeared on the injury report and missed this week’s final practice.
Wide receiver Justin Watson has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against Denver. Head coach Bruce Arians and the coaching staff are discussing options for activating another receiver to take Watson’s place.
“We’re making those decisions now,” Arians said. “The biggest roles are special teams because Justin [Watson] is such a huge role there. Receiver wise – it could be [Jaydon] Mickens, [Cyril] Grayson, Tyler [Johnson who] has had a good week of practice – we’ll see where it goes.”
