Status TBD for divisional round

Coach Bruce Arians said Wednesday that the Buccaneers continue to take a "wait and see" approach with Fournette (hamstring), Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Arians added the team may gain some clarity following Thursday's full practice, when Fournette will attempt to hit top speed without discomfort, which is something he's been unable to do as of Monday. As for the rest of Tampa Bay's backfield, Ronald Jones (ankle) again didn't practice, while Giovani Bernard was a limited participant. With no Fournette or Jones in this past Sunday's wild-card win against the Eagles, Bernard and Ke'Shawn Vaughn split snaps (49 percent share apiece) and touches (18 versus 19), a breakdown that may continue if the top two options, when healthy, again are unavailable for Sunday's divisional-round matchup with the Rams. The Bucs have until 4:00 p.m. ET on Saturday to activate Fournette (or not) from injured reserve.
