It’s Friday, Buccaneers’ fans, so you know the drill. The final day of open practice for this week’s game has occurred, and the only thing left is a walk-through before the boys from Tampa take the field against the defending Super Bowl champs.
Can they rebound from a tough loss at home to the Los Angeles Rams last week? Can the pass defense finally figure things out and stop opponents from throwing the ball all over the field? These questions and more will be answered soon enough.
But we do know that if they are going to win the ball game, Dirk Koetter and company are going to have to get it done with a short-handed group. The Friday injury report is out, and it isn’t pretty. Here’s ours:
|Robert Ayers||91||DE||Ankle||Did Not Participate||Did Not Participate||Did Not Participate||Out|
|Doug Martin||22||RB||Hamstring||Did Not Participate||Did Not Participate||Did Not Participate||Out|
|Cecil Shorts III||10||WR||Hamstring||Did Not Participate||Did Not Participate||Did Not Participate||Out|
|Luke Stocker||88||TE||Ankle||Did Not Participate||Did Not Participate||Did Not Participate||Out|
|Joe Hawley||68||C||Ankle||Did Not Participate||Limited Participation||Full Participation||Questionable|
I told you it wasn’t pretty. Hey, at least Hawley was a full-go, so it sounds like he will play on Sunday. We have to look for the positive, don’t we?
Now here is the report for the Broncos:
|Virgil Green||85||TE||Calf||Did Not Participate||Did Not Participate||Did Not Participate||Out|

I’m sure Jameis Winston is happy not to be looking at DeMarcus Ware, although he still has to look at Von Miller.
