12/31/17DLRobert AyersShoulderQUESTIONABLEAyers (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.

12/31/17LBDevante BondAnkleQUESTIONABLEBond (ankle) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Saints, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Because of Friday's doubtful designation this isn't much of a surprise, and it won't shake up the Bucs' defensive dynamic since he has just 14 tackles (12 solo) through 14 games.

12/31/17DBT.J. WardKneeQUESTIONABLEWard (knee) was arrested Wednesday morning in Tampa on a felony count of marijuana possession and a misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Ward posted bond and was released from jail shortly after his arrest, but he'll likely have to report to court at some point in the months to come and could face discipline from the NFL. A three-time Pro Bowler from 2013 through 2015, Ward has seen his effectiveness wane the past two seasons and was forced to settle for a part-time role with the Buccaneers in 2017. Ward, who sustained what is believed to be a minor knee injury in the Buccaneers' season finale Sunday against the Saints, will become a free agent this offseason.
