New, comments

William Gholston rejoined practice, though.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers added two new players to their did-not-practice list today: guard Robert Ayers (concussion) and defensive end Evan Smith (concussion) joined cornerback Vernon Hargreaves (hamstring) and quarterback Jameis Winston (shoulder) on the sidelines.

Hargreaves missed the last game, while Winston missed the last two and has already been ruled out for this Sunday’s game, too. Ayers and Smith are also highly unlikely to play: they’ll have to pass the concussion protocol to be allowed to suit up, and they only have a few days to do so.

The Bucs did get a bit of good news, at least: defensive end William Gholston joined practice on a limited basis. He missed the last two games with a neck injury that saw him stabilizeed and carted off on the field three weeks ago. Thankfully he seems to be recovering from that injury, and it isn’t as serious as it initially appeared.
