NFL injury updates, latest league news from Wednesday, Jan. 19

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have one of the best offensive lines in the league, but it's banged up as preparation begins for Sunday's Divisional Round matchup against the Rams.

Center Ryan Jensen and right tackle Tristan Wirfs were DNPs for the team's Wednesday walkthrough. The pair was nicked up during last week's wild-card win over the Eagles, with the All-Pro Wirfs missing the second half because of a sprained ankle and Pro Bowler Jensen able to play through an injured ankle.

Arians said earlier this week that he might not know the availability of Wirfs or Jensen until Friday. The Bucs coach said Wednesday that running back Leonard Fournette's status is also up in the air. The veteran back, out since Week 15 with a hamstring injury, participated in the walkthrough.

Tackle Josh Wells (quad) and linebacker Lavonte David (foot) were limited, while receivers Cyril Grayson (hamstring) and Breshad Perriman (hip/abdomen), running back Ronald Jones (ankle) and cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting (hamstring) were all listed as DNPs.
