The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are likely to miss Brent Grimes for the second consecutive. The cornerback missed today’s practice with a shoulder injury after head coach Dirk Koetter declared earlier this week that next game may be too soon for his return.
Aside from Grimes, the Bucs also held wide receiver Adam Humphries out of practice with a rib injury. It’s not clear how serious that injury is, nor whether it’s likely to keep him out of Sunday’s game. Humphries’ role has been reduced this year, though, and the Bucs have the depth at receiver to compensate for his potential absence, particularly with Chris Godwin.
Other than those two, the Bucs held out no players, but did have three players listed as limited in Chris Baker, Kendell Beckwith and Jameis Winston. None are expected to miss Sunday’s game. Josh Robinson and Robert McClain participated fully, but are still listed on the injury report due to a concussion—it’s possible that could still hold them out on Sunday.
As for the New Orleans Saints, the Bucs’ opponents this week, they held out three of their starting offensive linemen. Terron Armstead, Larry Warford and Andrus Peat did not practice today.
