Demar Dotson, Donovan Smith miss second day of practice

The Bucs are dealing with many injuries this week.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won’t just have to miss their starting quarterback on Sunday, they’ll almost certainly have to try to beat the New York Jets without two of their starting linemen, too.

Tackles Demar Dotson and Donovan Smith missed their second day of practice today, which probably means they won’t be available on Sunday. The same is true for defensive end William Gholston, who Dirk Koetter already ruled out. Adding onto that, defensive end Robert Ayers also missed his second day of practice today—which means the Bucs may have to be without both their starting offensive tackles, and their starting defensive ends against the Jets.

In better news, Brent Grimes participated fully in practice today, while Gerald McCoy and J.R. Sweezy were limited for the second day in the row—indicating some limitations due to injury, but probably not enough to keep them out of Sunday’s game.
