Buccaneers - Giants Injury Report: Trueblood, Amukamara, Hakeem Nicks questionable

New, comments

The injury report for Sunday's game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New York Giants is out. Both sides have plenty of players listed on their injury reports, but a few injuries appear to be crucial. For the Bucs, cornerbacks E.J. Biggers and Anthony Gaitor are both listed as Doubtful and both of them were limited in Friday's practice, meaning they're likely to miss Sunday's game. That will be a problem, because the Bucs don't have much depth at cornerback while the Giants have a lot of depth at wide receiver. Meanwhile, tackle Jeremy Trueblood is also likely to miss the game, as he's listed as Questionable after participating on a limited basis during the past two practices. Demar Dotson is likely to replace Trueblood.

On the Giants' side, two key players are listed as Questionable: cornerback Prince Amukamara and wide receiver Hakeem Nicks. The Giants have no depth at cornerback whatsoever, and having to miss Amukamara hurt them significantly against the Cowboys last week. Hopefully the Bucs can take advantage of his absence. Meanwhile, star receiver Hakeem Nicks is listed as questionable with a foot injury - and that means that the Giants' depth at receiver suddenly looks a lot less intimidating.
