The second-year player out of Indiana injured his shoulder in last week's loss to the Falcons, where he ran for 52 yards and a touchdown.
Howard should suit up but wide receiver Markus Wheaton (finger) is a much longer shot to play in Tampa Bay but is listed as active.
Other injury news we are keeping an eye on Sunday morning:
- The status of Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford (knee) will be inactive against the Steelers today in Pittsburgh. Per Rapoport, the Bradford's status was decided after a pregame workout. The good news is that his ACL and ligaments are intact. Linebacker Anthony Barr (hamstring) and cornerback Xavier Rhodes (hip) are both active for Minnesota.
