Buccaneers see Lavonte David, Gerald McCoy participate in practice

New, comments

The Thursday injury report for the Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers is out.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are slowly recovering from some crucial injuries. Gerald McCoy and Lavonte David were both limited in practice after Sunday's injuries, which means they're on track to play on Sunday. David would have to pass a concussion test, though, and it's not clear whether or not he's done so.

The only significant players to miss Thursday's practice were Clinton McDonald and Major Wright. While both have played well this year, neither player's absence has been particularly galling in recent weeks: Akeem Spence and Bradley McDougald have played well in their stead, and McDonald's injury allowed Da'Quan Bowers to get on the field, too.

As for the Panthers, they have a few injuries. Obviously Cam Newton won't play on Sunday, but starting guard Amini Silatolu missed his second day of practice, which probably means Gerald McCoy will have an even easier day than usual. Other than that, it looks like most significant players are likely to suit up on Sunday.
