Gholston (hip) is active Sunday against the Panthers. After putting in a pair of limited practices, Gholston was upgraded to a full session on Friday and will be in the lineup at left defensive end. On the season, he's recorded 64 tackles to go with three sacks.
Gholston (hip) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Panthers. Gholston has been a big part of Tampa Bay's strong run defense this season, tallying 64 tackles (44 solo) in 15 games. Of course, he only has three sacks and one forced fumble, after posting two sacks in each of his first two seasons.
Gholston (hip) was limited in practice for the second consecutive day on Thursday, Joe Kania of the Buccaneers official site reports. Gholston appears destined for a Week 17 questionable designation, and the Bucs would miss his run-stopping presence against Cam Newton and the Panthers should he be sidelined Sunday. Friday should bring further clarity on Gholston's status heading into the finale.
Gholston (hip) was limited in practice Wednesday,Joe Kania of the Buccaneers official site reports. Gholston played on 41 defensive snaps versus the Bears in Week 16 and tallied five tackles, bringing his career-high total of stops to 64 in 2015. He's become a much improved and valued member of Tampa's defensive line rotation, although he still struggles to put consistent heat on the quarterback. Gholston's status should be updated further after Thursday's practice session.
Gholston managed 11 tackles (seven solo), including two for loss, in Thursday's 31-23 loss to the Rams. Gholston has been progressively coming on over the second half of the season. The third-year pro has now tallied 37 tackles, three sacks, a forced fumble and a pass defensed over the last seven games alone, and the 11 tackles he managed Thursday was easily a career-high figure. He played an integral role in the Bucs suffocating Todd Gurley's running lanes to the tune of an average of 2.3 yards per rush on 21 carries, and seems to be fulfilling the potential that led his fourth-round selection in the 2013 draft. Gholston and his defensive line mates have another tough challenge ahead in Week 16, as they face the Bears' two-headed running attack of Jeremy Langford and Matt Forte.
