Giants cornerback Logan Ryan was asked earlier this week about facing Tom Brady, his former teammate and the quarterback of the Buccaneers, and he compared playing against the six-time Super Bowl champion to facing Super Mario boss Bowser.
Despite being listed as limited in practice this week, wide receiver Sterling Shepard says he plans on playing against Tampa Bay on Monday night.
The Buccaneers have only ruled out wide receiver Chris Godwin for Monday Night's matchup against the New York Giants. Three players that had been limited in practice this week, Rob Gronkowski, Scotty Miller and Antoine Winfield Jr., all practiced fully on Saturday. Jason Pierre-Paul and Ndamukong Suh sat out on maintenance days.
