The Tampa Bay Buccaneers received some news they were hoping for heading into their Week 16 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals. The Buccaneers are currently in a tightly contested NFC South, and need a win to get the lead in what would be a 3 way tie if they were to lose.

Going into the matchup the status of multiple stars and key veterans were in question. With the question of two pivotal secondary players in question vs a receiving room that includes DeAndre Hopkins and Marquise Brown, there was reason for concern. Well, the Buccaneers received some fantastic news Antoine Winfield Jr and Mike Edwards were no longer on the injury report and will be playing, which will be a big boost.

These additions don’t come free of cost however, they will be without star defensive tackle, Vita Vea. The full list of inactives can be found here.
