Six Buccaneers Listed As Questionable For Week 17

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers season, for all intents and purposes is on the line in Week 17 when they battle the Carolina Panthers, over whom they hold a slim 1-game lead in the NFC South, and at this point, it looks like they could be very short handed for this battle.

Just days away from the most important game of the season, the Buccaneers have no less than six players listed as questionable, with those names being Vita Vea, Donovan Smith, Antoine Winfield, Julio Jones, Mike Edwards and Jamel Dean, and if they are to win this one and make some noise in the playoffs, they desperately need to get healthy.

This has been a problem all season long for Tampa Bay, as they've consistently been missing players on both sides of the ball, but if they can find a way through Carolina and into the playoffs, this is a team that very few teams in the NFC would want to play.
