The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are fairly healthy heading into their NFC South division showdown with the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.
Bucs head coach Raheem Morris said after Friday's practice that everyone listed on the team's injury report, including middle linebacker Barrett Ruud (ribs), tight end Kellen Winslow (knee) and safety Tanard Jackson (illness) would play vs. the Falcons.
"Everybody was full participation today and everyone is probable for game day, so we're healthy," said Morris.
The one thing that remains undecided is whether Jim Bates, who was demoted as defensive coordinator earlier this week, will accompany the team to Atlanta. Morris said that decision hasn't been made, but would be mutually agreed upon by both Morris and Bates.
"Jim Bates is actually thinking about coming with us," said Morris. "We talked about it because he can help is in so many different ways from the box and things like that. We'll just have to wait and see.
"The decision is ours together. It's what is best for us. I want him to come and he wants to come, so more than likely he will be coming with us."
