The final injury report for the NFC Divisional round matchup between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the New Orleans Saints has been released.

Tampa Bay running back Ronald Jones II (quad/finger) was limited in practice Friday and is officially listed as questionable for Sunday. Whether or not Jones is available to play, Leonard Fournette will start, head coach Bruce Arian said.

“Did you watch last week?" Arians said when asked what gives him confidence in Fournette. "He’s a hell of a player and he played really, really well last week. I trusted him all year.”

Meanwhile, Tampa Bay officially played offensive lineman Alex Cappa on Injured Reserved on Friday and he will be out as well. Cappa fractured his ankle in the Wild Card round last week, head coach Bruce Arians said. Third-year offensive lineman Aaron Stinnie will start in Cappa's place moving forward.
