The Tampa Bay Buccaneers get back some sorely needed players in the form of Lavonte David - who missed the last two games with a groin injury - and SirVocea Dennis. With Devin White still being out with a foot injury, having those two back at inside linebacker is huge.

However, all the concern leading up to the game has been around Vita Vea who did not practice all week with a toe injury. Unfortunately, he will not be taking the field for the Bucs today - which isn’t great news considering they’re facing a run heavy Falcons team that went for over 150 yards in their first meeting without Bijan Robinson. Logan Hall will start in his place.

The Bucs elevated David Moore and Deadrin Senat from the practice squad for this game and that marks three consecutive games Moore has been elevated. With injuries to Vea and Chris Godwin, the elevations are some added insurance.

For the Falcons, they’ll be without linebacker Nate Landman, defensive lineman LaCale London, offensive lineman Kaleb McGary, and defensive lineman David Onyemata for this one. The good news for them is that cornerback A.J. Terrell cleared concussion protocol and will play. Their other corners - Jeff Okudah and Mike Hughes - both came into this week listed as questionable with injuries and were limited in practice all week. Okudah will not play as he continues to deal with an ankle injury.
