Buccaneers vs. Jets Injury Report: Darrelle Revis fully healthy; Carl Nicks, Tom Crabtree and Quinton Coples are out

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New York Jets are relatively healthy for the season opener, if the injury reports can be believed.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers go into Sunday's game against the New York Jets almost completely healthy. They will still be missing two starters, however, as Carl Nicks is not recovered from his staph infection yet, while Tom Crabtree has a high ankle sprain and won't be available for at least a few more weeks.

Darrelle Revis is completely healthy, though, and he will almost certainly play on Sunday. But the Bucs will struggle with cornerback depth nonetheless, as undrafted rookie Rashaan Melvin is unlikely to suit up. Add in running back Mike James with an 'eye' injury (according to Max Luckan he has concussion-like symptoms, but did pass tests) and fullback Erik Lorig as questionable, and the team's offense may be restricted. Specifically, the Bucs are likely to ask Brian Leonard to play a fullback role.

The Jets are healthy themselves as well, despite a ridiculous amount of players listed as 'probable'. Quinton Coples will be the biggest loss for New York, who could struggle to generate an edge rush, while Santonio Holmes' participation is in question. Without him, the Jets have very few dependable receiving weapons.
