Buccaneers' Robert Ayers: Signs with Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayers signed with Detroit on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Ayers started 10 games for the Buccaneers in 2017, making 31 tackles and two sacks. He was cut in March after the team signed Vinny Curry and later traded for Jason Pierre-Paul. Ayers will likely work in a reserve role with the Lions, but he can rotate between pass-rushing and run-stopping situations.

Robert Ayers: Cut by Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayers (shoulder) was released by the Buccaneers on Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Ayers started 10 games for Tampa Bay last season and registered 31 combined tackles to go along with two sacks. At 32 years old, Ayers still has some juice left in the tank so it's expected that he'll garner some suitors for his service. Just how much juice is left in the tank remains to be seen, however.

Buccaneers' Robert Ayers: Inactive for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayers (shoulder) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Saints, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Ayers has accrued 31 tackles (20 solo) and just two sacks this season. The veteran defensive lineman will miss his fourth game of the season, and Ryan Russell will fill in for the time being.

Buccaneers' Robert Ayers: Unlikely to play season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayers (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Saints, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Ayers was a limited participant in practice this week, but it appears the team is exercising some caution with its starting defensive end. Patrick O'Connor and Will Clarke should both see increased workloads Sunday with Ayers unlikely to suit up.

Buccaneers' Robert Ayers: Limited in Wednesday's session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayers (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

The veteran defensive end missed the entirety of Week 16 prep with the stinger he'd suffered against the Falcons in the prior contest, so his return Wednesday, even in a limited capacity was a good sign. Further insight into Ayers' chances of suiting up for the regular-season finale will be gleaned from the final two injury reports of the week.
