Buccaneers Rule Out Two Players For Week 12

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are holding a very tight lead in the NFC South this season, despite a 5-5 record on the season, and they've done so despite consistently having one of the lengthiest injury reports in the NFL all season long, and in Week 12 ahead of a matchup with the Cleveland Browns, it's not getting any better. 

Decisions on Leonard Fournette and Vita Vea will be made closer to game time, but on Friday, the team officially ruled out both Russell Gage and Luke Goedeke, who have missed the past four games together, making the offensive performances of the Buccaneers even tougher going forward.

With Tom Brady at the helm and plenty of veteran talents, this team is always going to be competitive, but until they can get fully healthy, this franchise certainly has a ceiling in 2022, so they'll be hoping that both of these offensive weapons can get healthy very soon.
