Despite a rather long list of contributors on the Buccaneers' report, only one player earned a game status designation to end the week. There is certainly a cause for concern, though, as that player is starting cornerback Carlton Davis III, who was added to the report on Friday with a hamstring injury and is considered questionable for Sunday's game.

Davis, arguably Tampa Bay's best defensive back, is dealing with the latest injury to a member of the Bucs' secondary. The team lost nickel corner Sean Murphy-Bunting to the injured reserve this week due to a dislocated elbow, while safety Jordan Whitehead will be making his season debut against the Falcons after missing the preseason and week one with a hamstring injury of his own.

Against Dallas last Thursday, Davis recorded two tackles, an interception, and three pass breakups. He graded out as one of the NFL's top coverage players in week one.

Otherwise, the Buccaneers appear healthy entering week two. Edge rusher Jason Pierre-Paul's hand injury created some worry throughout the week, but head coach Bruce Arians said that Pierre-Paul is "fine" and had a veteran's day off on Friday.

For Atlanta, the only player on the injury report this week has been ruled out: Rookie wide receiver Frank Darby, who has been dealing with a calf injury.
