Michael Thomas is expected back against the Buccaneers, though he will play fewer snaps than normal, according to Jay Glazer. He has not suited up since week one due to injuries and a team-imposed suspension. Thomas received some advice from Randy Moss this week:

If anyone knows how to handle tumultuous seasons, it’s Moss. What this means remains to be seen, but Thomas, even in a limited role, is an absolute must-start against the Bucs.

More from the NFC

  • Ezekiel Elliot is expected to play today against the Steelers. Pittsburgh allows the fifth-fewest rush yards per game and should be able to stack the box with Garrett Gilbert getting the start at QB. Elliot still has not eclipsed the 100-yard mark this season, but may end up catching check down passes all day today.
  • Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin is expected to return from a broken finger tonight against the Saints, according to Ian Rapoport. Godwin has missed three games so far this season and should help open things up for Mike Evans and Antonio Brown.
  • The Cardinals will be without running back Kenyan Drake against the Dolphins. Drake has remained Arizona’s lead back, but Chase Edmonds will get a shot to show off his skills. Unfortunately for Edmonds, Miami’s defense has stifled opponents for the most part this season.
