The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are getting a little healthier. Cornerback Jude Adjei-Barimah participated fully in practice despite leaving Sunday's game with an elbow injury, and Gosder Cherilus was also back after missing Sunday's game -- though he may have lost his starting spot to Demar Dotson. Bruce Carter returned from his concussion and should line up at strong side linebacker this weekend. Will Gholston was limited with a concussion in practice, but the fact that he practiced at all suggests he's passed the concussion protocol and should be good to go against the New Orleans Saints as well.

Gerald McCoy continues to be limited in practice after missing Sunday's game, but indications are that he'll be able to play as well. Defensive end Jacquies Smith is still being held out, but George Johnson did return to practice. As was the case last week, Vincent Jackson is limited but should play, and Lavonte David is limited with an ankle injury that is not believed to be serious.

As for the New Orleans Saints, they have a lot more issues. Four players were held out of practice due to injury, including starters tackle Terron Armstead and cornerback Delvin Breaux. They placed running back Mark Ingram o injured reserve, while tackle Zach Strief, guard Jahri Evans and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe were all limited as well.
