Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Half the starting offensive line sits out practice

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are running out of healthy players.

Munich/Tampa – Before the important division duel with the New Orleans Saints, the Injury Report of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers causes a stir on Wednesday. Especially at wide receiver, the personnel situation could get thin.

Seven of the eleven starters from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ offence sat out practice on Wednesday or only completed parts of the unit.

That’s according to the Injury Report posted on the Bucs’ website.

Only two wide receivers complete entire session

In addition to quarterback Tom Brady, whose absence is not due to injury but rather due to stress management, three wide receivers, Chris Godwin, Russell Gage (both thigh) and Julio Jones (knee), also did not participate in practice.

Mike Evans (calf) and Breshad Perriman (knee) completed limited sessions, same for running back Leonard Fournette (thigh).

In addition, two key players on the offensive line did not reel off the entire programme: left tackle Donovan Smith (elbow) took a break, right tackle Tristan Wirfs (abdomen) dosed up the load.
