Buccaneers' Robert Ayers: Cleared for Week 11 matchup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayers (ankle) doesn't carry an injury designation heading into Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

While he was battling the same ankle injury, Ayers was deemed questionable heading into the Week 10 win over the Jets, ultimately suiting up and supplying three tackles across 48 defensive snaps in the victory. With Ayers coming out of that contest no worse for the wear and turning in a full practice session Friday, he should be on tap for a full workload in the interstate matchup Sunday.

Buccaneers' Robert Ayers: Punishes quarterback in Week 10 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayers (ankle) posted four tackles (all solo) and one sack in Sunday's 15-10 win over the Jets. He compiled four quarterback hits overall.

The veteran defensive end played well while nursing an ankle injury for the second straight week, as he's now compiled nine tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble over that span. Ayers has all three of his quarterback takedowns on the season within the last four games, and his 26 tackles through nine games leave him just four short of eclipsing the 29 he posted in his first Buccaneers season in 2016.

Buccaneers' Robert Ayers: Taking field Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayers (ankle) is active for Sunday's Week 10 tilt against the Jets, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

As he did Week 9, the veteran defensive lineman will fight through his ankle injury and attempt to slow down veteran signal caller Josh McCown and a running game that will be helmed by Bilal Powell, with Matt Forte (knee) taking a seat this week.

Buccaneers' Robert Ayers: Status undetermined for Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayers (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup versus the Jets.

Ayers fought through an ankle injury in Week 9, and ultimately recorded a season-high tackle total to go along with a sack. The veteran defensive end was held out of practice earlier in the week before logging a limited workload Friday. It is unclear if the team is just exercising caution with Ayers during the week or if the injury is a serious threat to his status for Week 10. Darryl Tapp would presumably fill in at defensive end should he be unable to go.

Buccaneers' Robert Ayers: Doesn't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayers (ankle, calf) did not participate in Wednesday's practice, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

The veteran defensive end battled through his ankle ailment in Week 9, generating a season-high tackle total that included one sack in the process. While his total lack of participation in the opening session of Week 10 prep is somewhat concerning, the Buccaneers are likely being cautious with the veteran's body as they enter the second half of the season. The next two days' practice reports should shed much more light on Ayers' prospects for suiting up Sunday against the Jets.
