The Bucs have glaring weaknesses in the secondary. And these have been illuminated by a slew of injuries.
The Bucs could be without right guard Jamon Meredith on Sunday. This could be crucial against the Panthers’ pass rush.
The Bucs will likely miss Arrelious Benn this Sunday. But that leaves a gap at kick returner, and Greg Schiano already has someone in mind.
Surprisingly, Eric Wright should play against the Raiders. His presence will be needed in the Bucs secondary.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are heading into Thursday night’s game healthier than the Minnesota Vikings. Many of the Vikings’ key players have some short of injury. The Bucs have had the Vikings’ number in years past and will hope that they can defeat the Vikings’ beat-up team.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers only have two injures on the NFL Injury Report this week with the New Orleans Saints having nine. The Bucs have to worry about wide receiver Vincent Jackson’s calf injury. He has been limited in practice but it is never good when your number one receiver is hurt. Will the Bucs have several other options if Jackson is not up for a big game?
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are coming off their bye week well rested. It is hard to say if the bye week will help them or if the team will be rusty, but as a whole, the Bucs are pretty healthy compared to the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will use the bye week to rest up. The team doesn’t have to many injures but the ones they do, can be a bother. This will be good for a few of the players that have these injures in hopes that they can start to heal.
Having been out since the first day of training camp after injuring his foot, cornerback E.J. Biggers return could just be the return the that the Buccaneers defense needs.
The Bucs did made some big moves to compensate for the loss of their return man and key receiver, Sammie Stroughter, who may not return this season. The Dallas Cowboys have injuries to some of their key players could help out the Buccaneers, having an injury report almost twice the size of Tampa Bay.
