Other players include:

  • QB Kyle Trask

Wirfs being ruled out comes as no surprise after he was carted off the field following a “gruesome” injury against the Cleveland Browns last Sunday.

Something to note is that running back Leonard Fournette meaning we could potentially see his return after being out since the Bucs vs. Seahawks game in Germany.
