NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said barring a practice setbacks, he expects Leonard Fournette (hamstring) to play in the Divisional Round.

Rapoport said Bucs head coach Bruce Arians held Fournette out of last week's Wild Card game against the Eagles because the veteran couldn't "open it up" on the practice field a month after injuring his hamstring. If Fournette is able to get through Friday's practice without a setback, he should suit up Sunday against the Rams. Whether he'll see his usual every-down workload is another question entirely. Gio Bernard would likely spell Fournette on passing downs and perhaps two-minute drills. Lombardi Lenny could be more touchdown-dependent than usual against LA.
