Dean has a back injury and is questionable to return to Sunday's divisional-round playoff game against the Lions, Jenna Laine of reports.

The starting cornerback was active before exiting, recording five tackles and three passes defensed. Dean had 61 tackles and four passes defensed in the regular season and 10 tackles and a pass defensed in Tampa Bay's wild-card playoff win over Philadelphia. Zyon McCollum is his backup.

Team-high tackle total in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-17

Dean recorded 10 tackles (nine solo), including one for loss, and broke up a pass in the Buccaneers' 32-9 wild-card win over the Eagles on Monday night.

Dean recorded twice as many tackles as the next-closest teammate in that category, Lavonte David. The cornerback was kept extremely busy on a night in which Jalen Hurts was forced to the air for 35 pass attempts, and although he gave up his share of completions, it helped lead to a highly productive IDP performance thanks to the tackling opportunities. Dean and his secondary mates should have their hands full trying to keep up with Amon-Ra St. Brown and the rest of the Lions' pass catchers in Sunday afternoon's divisional-round battle at Ford Field.

Good to go

Dean (ankle/foot) is listed as active for Sunday's matchup with the Packers, Scott Smith of the Bucs' official website reports.

Dean finished the week with back-to-back full practices before getting a questionable designation, so he appeared to be trending in this direction. Barring any setbacks, he figures to take on his usual responsibilities at cornerback.

Chance to return versus Green Bay

Dean (ankle) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Packers.

Dean finished the week logging back-to-back full practice sessions and his chances of returning from a three-absence looks promising. He has 48 tackles (36 solo) and a fumble recovery in nine games this season. Dean's return would be a welcome one for the Bucs' secondary after starting cornerback Carlton Davis was ruled out for Sunday's game with a groin injury.

Turns in full practice

Dean (ankle) was a full participant at practice Thursday after participating on a limited basis Wednesday.

Dean missed the last three contests with an ankle injury, so his full participation in Thursday's practice is a good sign for his availability Sunday against the Packers. The veteran cornerback has amassed 48 tackles (36 solo), three passes defensed and one fumble recovery in nine games of the 2023 campaign.

Limited Wednesday

Dean (ankle) was considered to be a limited participant at the Buccaneers' walkthrough Wednesday, Brianna Dix of the team's official site reports.

Dean has been unavailable for three games in a row while nursing an ankle injury, but Wednesday's status is a promising sign for a potential return in Week 15. The cornerback will have two more practice sessions to increase his participation ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Packers.

Will miss third straight game

Dean (ankle) won't play Sunday against the Falcons, Greg Auman of Fox Sports reports.

Dean will miss a third consecutive game, keeping Tampa Bay's leaky secondary in a diminished state. Zyon McCollum will likely continue to see increased playing time against Atlanta, while Dean's next opportunity to suit up will come in Week 15 against the Packers.

Dean (ankle) did not participate in Wednesday's practice session.

Dean sustained an ankle injury in Week 11 against the 49ers and has missed the last two games because of it. Zyon McCollum saw his snap count increase dramatically in the two games Dean sat out and the former would likely continue to see the field more if the latter misses more time.

Won't be available vs. Panthers

Dean (ankle) is out for Sunday's game versus the Panthers, Greg Auman of Fox Sports reports.

Dean will miss his second straight game Sunday as he deals with an ankle injury he sustained in Week 11 at San Francisco. In his absence, Christian Izien will probably see a heavy workload against a pass-happy Carolina offense.
