The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Houston Texans practiced today, and both of them are struggling with injuries. The most significant names are no surprise: Houston receiver Deandre Hopkins is out with a concussion, and he'll have to pass a concussion test to practice again, while Tampa Bay tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is expected to miss four to six weeks. The Bucs were also missing center Evan Smith, who seems unlikely to play on Sunday, while the Texans didn't have Duane Brown, who missed last week's game with a hand injury as well.

Meanwhile, Arian Foster is still limited. The running back hasn't played this week, and the Texans said on Monday that he was "day-to-day". There's a chance he plays on Sunday, but his participation remains in doubt and Bill O'Brien today said that it was "unlikely". The Texans have struggled to run the ball without Foster.

In addition, Major Wright remains out for the Bucs. Gerald McCoy was limited in practice after suffering a shoulder injury on Sunday, but he should be recovered by game time. Finally, cornerback Mike Jenkins and defensive end T.J. Fatinikun continued to be limited in practice after missing the first two games. Their participation seems a little more likely this week than last week, with Jenkins especially close to playing.
