The Buccaneers have a big matchup against the Green Bay Packers this week, so it’s obvious that they will need all hands on deck.
The team has suffered some pretty big injuries over the last few weeks, but received some good on news on Tuesday when several key players returned to the practice field.

This is huge for the Bucs, who are going up against a Packers team that averages 38 points per game through four games. It was pretty clear that the lack of offensive weapons —and a tough Chicago defense— were big contributors toward the Bucs’ 19-point outing in Week 5. The team’s first official injury report of the week won’t come out until Wednesday, so we don’t know each player’s official game status just yet, but one has to think that the Bucs should have a lot easier time scoring points and moving the ball if these guys are able to suit up on Sunday.
Stay tuned for updates as the week progresses.
