Giovani Bernard, RB (FA)
Active for first time since Week 14
Bernard (hip/knee) is active for Sunday's wild-card game against the Eagles.
With his return from a pair of injuries now confirmed, Bernard is poised to make his first appearance since Week 14. He'll rejoin a Buccaneers backfield that is without Ronald Jones (ankle) and Leonard Fournette (hamstring), the latter of whom remains on injured reserve. Considering this reality, Bernard could be poised for more work than normal if Tampa Bay decides to lean on the passing attack, but Ke'Shawn Vaughn and Le'Veon Bell are around for early-down and goal-line work. On the season, Barner has recorded 23 catches (on 29 targets) and eight carries en route to 181 yards from scrimmage and three receiving touchdowns in 12 contests.
