The Tampa Bay Buccaneers practiced at Tropicana Field to get acclimated to indoor football ahead of Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints, but some players sat out while they continue to recover from various injuries.
Larry English, Mike Evans, Dashon Goldson, Michael Johnson, Josh McCown and Austin Seferian-Jenkins did not practice for the Buccaneers, with ASJ and Johnson specifically "resting ankles" according to Greg Auman's account of Lovie Smith's press conference.
McCown did not practice, which is a very good indication that Mike Glennon will remain the quarterback on Sunday, heading to New Orleans to orchestrate the Bucs offense in a shootout with a future Hall of Famer in Drew Brees.
Mason Foster did return to the practice field, however, giving the Buccaneers a defender back just as they lose one (Goldson) this week. The middle linebacker was dealing with a shoulder injury, and was limited on Wednesday, but is getting closer to a full recovery and return to the field.
Gerald McCoy continues to practice with a broken hand, and appears to have suffered no setbacks.
