Buccaneers injury update: Getting a little healthier

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Training Camp Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers came out of Thursday night’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles with a few minor injuries, but most of those cleared up today, according to the Tampa Bay Times. They note that running back Charles Sims, cornerback Vernon Hargreaves and defensive end William Gholston were all back at practice today, which is good news.

The Bucs have been fairly fortunate with injuries, though it continues to look more and more likely that J.R. Sweezy will miss the first five games of the season. Receiver Louis Murphy also has yet to practice this year, which makes it exceedingly unlikely that he’ll make the 53-man roster. Other than that, though, most of the Bucs’ key players are healthy. Injuries are still keeping safety Elijah Shumate, tight end Brandon Myers, and guard Caleb Benenoch out, but the first two were unlikely to make the roster, and the third was unlikely to contribute this year if he did get on the 53-man roster.
