Three Key Tampa Bay Buccaneers Return To Practice

Somehow, while sitting at 6-7 on the season thus far through Week 14, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are holding onto a slim one game lead in the NFC South, and ahead of a crucial matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals, it appears that Tampa could have some massive reinforcements on the way. 

On Friday, Vita Vea and others were still out of practice, but in a piece of good news, Tristan Wirfs, Julio Jones and Antoine Winfield Jr. all returned to the practice field ahead of Sunday's game, and while none have officially been cleared to compete yet, it's a good sign for their availability.

With Carolina just one game behind Tampa, every game is important down the stretch, and for a Buccaneers squad that's been dealing with injuries all season long, this is a much needed piece of good news as they look to give the GOAT the best send off possible.
