Buccaneers vs. Viking Thursday Injury Report

New, comment

No significant injuries for either the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or the Minnesota Vikings, it seems.

David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers continue to be coy with Josh McCown's injury. The quarterback was once again limited in practice, and the Bucs refuse to comment on how likely his return to playing form is, let alone whether he'd start if he's fully healthy. It seems likely that Mike Glennon will once again get the start against the Minnesota Vikings.

Expect Anthony Collins, Dashon Goldson and Vincent Jackson to play on Sunday, despite being limited in practice the past two days. In fact, the Bucs shouldn't have any significant injuries to starting players this Sunday. I think that's a first this season.

For the Vikings, Kyle Rudolph's continued absence has to be their biggest concern. The starting tight end hasn't seen the field since week three, and it doesn't look like he'll be able to return this week. Other than that the Vikings don't have any significant injuries to key players. Center John Sullivan appears to be on track to play in Sunday's game, as is defensive end Corey Wootton.
