The Tampa Bay Buccaneers can’t go through a week without a defensive back missing practices, apparently. Today Vernon Hargreaves joined Jameis Winston and William Gholston on the sidelines, missing practice with a hamstring injury he picked up in Sunday’s game.
His participation next Sunday against the Miami Dolphins is now in doubt, though at least Robert McClain is back to practicing and should step in for him in case Hargreaves can’t go. Both Winston and Gholston are almost certain to miss Sunday’s game, at least.
Other than those three players, the Bucs are mostly healthy, or as healthy as an NFL team gets this late in the season. They had a few players limited in practice, but none who we should be overly worried about.
As for the Miami Dolphins, they listed three players as out with injury: defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, defensive end William Hayes, and running back Senorise Perry. Suh’s absence is obviously the most impactful in the group, we’ll see if that carries through the rest of the week.
