Packers vs. Buccaneers injury report: Clinton McDonald, Mason Foster limited

New, comments
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers probably won't have Major Wright at safety on Sunday, if defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier can be believed. While Wright was limited in today's practice, Frazier implied that Bradley McDougald would start once again. McDougald has played well, so that shouldn't be a huge problem for the Bucs.

Bigger problems are Clinton McDonald and Mason Foster, both of whom were limited in practice for the second straight day. If either one can't go, that'll be a bit of a blow to the team's defense. Danny Lansanah has been okay filling in for Foster, but McDonald's absence would be a real limitation for the team's interior pass rush now that Gerald McCoy is on injured reserve.

As for the Green Bay Packers, their biggest problems are probably right tackle Bryan Bulaga and cornerback Davon House, neither of whom has practiced this week. Bulaga's recovering from a concussion and will have to pass a concussion test before he's allowed to practice or play, while House is absent with a shoulder injury. If Bulaga can't go, the Bucs should have an easier time getting to Aaron Rodgers and Jacquies Smith in particular should profit. Meanwhile, House has started every game he's been healthy for this year, so his absence would be a blow to their pass defense.
