Buccaneers’ Tristan Wirfs inactive for divisional round playoff game vs. Rams; Cyril Grayson also out – CBSSports.com

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won’t have Tristan Wirfs available for Sunday’s NFC Divisional Playoff matchup with the Los Angeles Rams, as the All-Pro right tackle is on the inactive list due to an ankle injury. Wirfs was listed as questionable for the game after suffering the injury in the wild-card victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.  Also listed as a notable inactive for the Buccaneers is wide receiver Cyril Grayson, who was questionable with a hamstring injury. Grayson missed last week’s playoff game against the Eagles with the injury and will miss his second consecutive playoff game. With Grayson out, the Buccaneers’ top three wide receivers will be Mike Evans, Tyler Johnson, and Scotty Miller. Breshad Perriman is also inactive for the game with a hip injury. Wirfs recorded 764 pass blocking snaps on the season and allowed just two sacks and committed just one holding penalty in earning First Team All-Pro honors at right tackle. Wirfs was replaced by Josh Wells at right tackle when he injured the ankle last week against Philadelphia before returning as Wells is expected to get the start at right tackle this week.  Returning for the Buccaneers offense this week is center Ryan Jensen, who was questionable with an ankle injury. Jensen started all 17 games at center this season and earned his first Pro Bowl appearance. With Wirfs out, the Buccaneers will need Jenson and the offensive line that allowed the fewest pressures in the league to step up against a Rams defense that has Aaron Donald and Von Miller — as their 10 tackles for loss are tied for the most by any defensive player since Week 13.
