Tampa Bay Buccaneers Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Gholston logged another full practice Friday but is still listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Falcons.
Impact: Gholston, who has missed the last two games with a neck injury, appears on track to return in Week 12. However, the team is being cautious with this injury designation, so a final decision on his status is unlikely to be confirmed until closer to kickoff. Ryan Russell would presumably fill in at defensive end should Gholston suffer some type of setback.
News: Brate (ankle) was a full practice participant Friday and doesn't have a designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game in Atlanta.
Impact: Brate was limited at practice the previous two days, but there was never any report to suggest he was in danger of missing a game. His waning involvement in the Tampa passing attack sans Jameis Winston (shoulder) is the real concern, with Brate looking to end a streak of three straight games with exactly one catch for 12 yards or less.
News: Ayers (concussion) won't play Sunday against the Falcons, Roy Cummings of WFLA NewsChannel 8 reports.
Impact: Ayers has 28 tackles (17 solo) and two sacks this season, and he would have been helpful in keeping pressure on the league's seventh-ranked pass offense. William Gholston (neck) will be back for Sunday's game, though, which will shore up the edges of the Bucs' defensive front while Darryl Tapp and Ryan Russell play in Ayers' place.
