The Buccaneers have made an update to their injury report ahead of Sunday’s game against the 49ers. Defensive tackle Vita Vea has been listed as having an illness, but the team has stated that they expect him to play at Levi’s Stadium. This announcement comes after a similar one was made last week about wide receiver Chris Godwin, who played without any issues despite being listed on the injury report.
Vea has had an impressive season so far, with 27 tackles, 4.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles. The Buccaneers are undoubtedly hoping to have him on the field for Sunday’s game. Despite Vea’s illness and a few other minor injuries, the team only had two players listed on their final injury report of the week.
Safety Ryan Neal is out with a thumb injury, while guard Matt Feiler is listed as questionable to be in the lineup on Sunday afternoon. With Vea expected to play and only two other players carrying injury designations, the Buccaneers are likely feeling confident about their chances against the 49ers.
