Buccaneers Injury Updates

  • RB Ernest Graham
  • “Earnest Graham didn’t practice,” said Gruden. “Hopefully he can do a little bit more tomorrow.”
  • TE Alex Smith
  •  ”Alex Smith did not practice. We have a number of guys that are injured.” – Jon Gruden
  • RB Warrick Dunn practiced on Wednesday and looks to be the main ballcarrier on Sunday.
  • WR Ike Hilliard
  • “He’s going to play,” said Gruden. “Knowing Ike, he is special. I wish he felt better all the time, but that guy is unbelievable. He’ll find a way to play in my opinion, but we’ll see.”
  • FB BJ Askew
  • “I hope so,” said Gruden. “He practiced Monday and returned today. We’ll see how he feels tomorrow.”
  • SS Jermaine Phillips
  • “He’s progressing well,” said Gruden. “I don’t know if he’ll be ready this week, but maybe we have a chance in the coming game or two to get him back. It hurts him not playing. I really feel bad for him. He was playing really good football for us.”
  • Jimmy Wilkerson also did not practice on Wednesday.
  • It doesn’t appear as though Cadillac Williams is on the injury report at all from Wednesday.  This puts a sinister smile on my face.
