Report: Tampa Bay Running Back to Miss Wild Card Game
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be without a key member of their offense in Sunday when they host the Philadelphia Eagles in their Wild Card game.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette will not be active and will not play in the game.
With Fournette out and Ronald Jones already ruled out, expect Tampa to use Ke'Shawn Vaughn and Le'Veon Bell in the running game.
Losing Fournette will be a key loss for Tampa, finishing third in running back receptions (69) this season in just 14 games. He also has 810 yards and 10 touchdowns this season and was a key playoff performer last season for the Bucs during their Super Bowl run.
Tampa did get some good news, they will have key linebacker Lavonte David and running back Giovani Bernard for the game.
