Grayson, Jones out; Bucs hopeful for JPP, Barrett

1:53 PM ET

TAMPA, Fla. — Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians on Friday ruled out wide receiver Cyril Grayson and running back Ronald Jones for Sunday’s wild-card playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Arians also said there would be about four game-time decisions with key players.

Grayson, who stepped in for Antonio Brown in Week 17 and caught the game-winning touchdown from Tom Brady with 21 seconds remaining, suffered a hamstring injury in Week 18 and did not practice this week. He did make a brief cameo Wednesday, working with the training staff on the field before practice.

Jones, who stepped in after starter Leonard Fournette suffered a hamstring strain in Week 15, suffered an ankle injury in Week 17 and missed last week’s game and all of practice this week.

The question marks will be Fournette and linebackers Shaq Barrett, Jason Pierre-Paul and Lavonte David. David, Fournette and running back Giovani Bernard all were back at practice this week as part of their 21-day window to return from injured reserve and can be activated at any time.

“I feel pretty good about Shaq and JPP,” Arians said Friday. “Lavonte will be the most questionable, with Lenny.”
