Tampa Bay Buccaneers center Ryan Jensen and right tackle Tristan Wirfs were spotted during the portion of practice open to the media on Friday.

Jensen and Wirfs missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday due to their respective ankle injuries. Their participation in practice on Friday likely will go a long way toward determining their availability for Sunday's NFC divisional-round playoff clash against the visiting Los Angeles Rams.

Jensen and Wirfs sustained their respective injuries during the Buccaneers' 31-15 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC wild-card game last Sunday.

Leonard Fournette also suited up for practice on Friday, although he would need to be activated off injured reserve in order to play against the Rams.

Backfield mate Ronald Jones, who has missed the past two games with an ankle injury, was out of his boot on Thursday but did not practice.

Fournette led Tampa Bay in rushing with 812 yards and eight touchdowns this season. He also caught 69 passes for 454 yards and two scores.

With Fournette and Jones sidelined last weekend against Philadelphia, Ke'Shawn Vaughn and Giovani Bernard combined to rush for 97 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 30 carries.
