The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Dallas Cowboys are struggling with a lot of injuries right now. So many that they listed a combined 25 players on this week's first injury report ahead of Sunday's game.

For the Bucs, the most prominent injuries are to Vincent Jackson and Ali Marpet, neither of whom practiced. Jacquies Smith continues to be absent as well, and Alterraun Verner was a surprise absence with a foot injury. The first three are unlikely to be ready for Sunday's game, but the latter's status is perhaps a little more positive.

In better news, Bradley McDougald returned to practice on a limited basis, which suggests he passed his concussion test. Major Wright was also back at practice after missing two games, and Gerald McCoy was able to participate fully for the first time in months. Austin Seferian-Jenkins, though, is still limited, as is D.J. Swearinger.

As for the Dallas Cowboys, they were missing Dez Bryant, Brice Butler, Barry Church, Nick Hayden, Anthony Hitchens, Demarcus Lawrence, Sean Lee, Christine Michael and Rod Smith in practice. In addition, Rolando McClain and Brandon Carr were limited. That is such a mess of players that it's impossible to say who will and won't be ready for Sunday, but Dez Bryant should be good to go. Tony Romo isn't eligible to return to the roster until next week, so he won't be suiting up regardless.
