Bears @ Bucs Injury Report: Legarrette Blount Doubtful, Jeff Faine out, Gerald McCoy Questionable

New, comments

We have some good news and some bad news today. Legarrette Blount still hasn't practiced and has been ruled doubtful for Sunday's contest, but it is extremely unlikely that he will actually play. That means we'll see another dose of Earnest Graham on Sunday. Similarly, Jeff Faine is out. This means Ted Larsen will start at left guard, while Jeremy Zuttah will take over at center. Finally, Sammie Stroughter has been ruled out despite practicing this week. 

Gerald McCoy could actually play on Sunday and has participated in practices on a limited basis. Of course, he's listed as Questionable so it's far from certain. If he can't go the Bucs really don't have an inside pass rush, and Frank Okam and Da'Quan Bowers would take over. 

Mason Foster has participated on a limited basis this week and is Probable, while Michael Bennett has also participated and is also listed as Probable. Both players should be good to go. Luke Stocker as questionable. If he can't go, expect Demar Dotson to once again step in as an extra blocker. 

For the Bears, T Gabe Carimi has been ruled out, as he has not participated the past few weeks. Other han that they don't have any major injuries that aren't listed as Probable.
