Ronald Jones practiced fully for the Buccaneers on Friday ahead of Packers game
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had their number one running back from the regular season go through a full practice on Friday. It’s an upgrade for Jones, who had been limited in every practice prior. The 23-year-old has been bothered by a quad issue that kept him out of two of the last three regular-season games and the Bucs wildcard game against Washington. Jones was able to return last week and put up 62 yards on 13 carries in Tampa’s win over the Saints.
Leonard Fournette was the undoubted lead back last week, leading the team with 17 carries and 63 yards while adding a team-high five catches for 44 yards and a touchdown reception. There’s a good chance it will be much of the same against the Packers. There will be no surprise if Fournette out touches Jones again this weekend after out-snapping Jones 48-21 in the Divisional Round.
