The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have dealt with injuries to key players on both sides of the ball all season long, but just before their Week 14 home matchup against the Buffalo Bills, they’re getting some good news on the health front.
Both cornerback Jamel Dean and wide receiver/return specialist Jaelon Darden have cleared concussion protocol, and will be available for Sunday’s game, per multiple reports.
Dean’s presence will give the Bucs their three starting corners on the field for one of the few times this season, along with the return of Richard Sherman from injured reserve earlier this week.
Darden has been the Bucs’ primary return man when healthy this season, so it’s safe to assume the rookie fourth-round pick will assume those duties now that he’s back in the lineup.
