Heading into the match up this weekend against Carolina, the banged up Buccaneers garnered a list of 14 on their Thursday injury report including newly added Brent Grimes to the report. Grimes and Peyton Barber both took a step back in action as they were limited participants today. Carlton Davis, Demar Dotson and M.J. Stewart all were no go’s today. Demar Dotson is one to keep an eye on when Friday’s report comes out. Should Dotson be unable to suit up, Leonard Webster stands to make his first career start at right tackle. Some decent news on the day is that Lavonte David was able to be a limited participant for the second day in a row following his knee injury. The defense would benefit greatly with his possible return this Sunday against Christian McCaffrey and the Panthers.
As for the Carolina Panthers, injuries on all fronts are looking quite minimal for the team. The only non participant in Panthers practice was Colin Jones who did not miss for an injury. Kawann Short and Eric Reid both were upgraded to full participants for the Panthers, both of whom are key players on the Carolina defense. The full injury report for both teams can be found below.
