The Bucs released their second injury report of the week on Thursday and there were some noticeable differences compared to Wednesday’s report.
For starters, Lavonte David and Chris Godwin were upgraded to full and Steve McClendon —the main surprise from Tuesday’s report— was limited. That’s a good sign for the 10-year veteran.
But Mike Evans didn’t practice after getting in a limited Tuesday session and Jamel Dean sat out again. Evans was likely a maintenance day (speculation), but Dean’s groin is starting to become an issue in terms of him playing Sunday.
Rob Gronkowski sat out of practice as well, but I can guarantee that’s because it was a maintenance day.
The only change for the Vikings was tight end Irv Smith Jr. getting in a limited session after missing the first day. Eric Kendricks and Alexander Mattison both sat out for the second straight day.
Be sure to check back in Friday for the final injury report.
