The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Philadelphia Eagles face off on Sunday, with several players injured.
For the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, cornerback LeQuan Lewis will miss Sunday's game. Lewis was a street free agent pickup this season and hasn't played well when he's been on the field. With cornerback Anthony Gaitor returning to the line-up, the Bucs shouldn't feel Lewis' absence too badly. More concerning is Roy Miller's head injury, as the defensive tackle has been listed as questionable. Usually, a head injury equals a concussion, though it's not clear whether that's the case now. If Miller can't go, Gary Gibson will likely get the start in his place.
On the other side of this matchup, the Eagles are badly injured. They will miss running back LeSean McCoy, safety Kurt Coleman, tackle Nate Menkin, defensive tackle Mike Patterson and quarterback Michael Vick. In addition, running back Chris Polk is listed as Questonable with a toe injury. Most of these injuries have plagued the Eagles for weeks, and they've suffered as a result. Although Nick Foels and Bryce Brown have apparently sparked a lackluster Philadelphia offense, their defense appears broken beyond repair.
