The divisional round of the NFL playoffs are just hours from kickoff and there are a number of former Tigers who will be in action over the course of the next few days.
Among the wild card standouts were Tampa Bay running back Leonard Fournette as well as Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre'davious White. Fournette, who had been a complementary piece to the Bucs offense most of the season, drew the start with Ronald Jones out with an injury and responded with 93 yards rushing and a touchdown.
Tampa Bay linebacker Devin White is expected to make his playoff debut against the New Orleans Saints after missing the wild card game because of COVID-19 protocols. Another player to keep an eye on this weekend is rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire of the Kansas City Chiefs.
Edwards-Helaire suffered hip and ankle injuries in a win over the Saints a couple of weeks ago and has only practiced a little bit since going down.
"A couple of days ago he moved around real well, and then we just kind of backed off of him," coach Andy Reid said. "He's still doing stuff, just not with the group. We'll just see how he does."
