The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released the second injury report of the week on Thursday and there was a new name on the list.

Rookie safety Antoine Winfield Jr. was added to the report with an ankle ailment, but was listed as a full participant despite. Everything else was a repeat of the day before.

Bruce Arians did offer an update on Antonio Brown after practice. A day after referring to Brown as “day-to-day”, Arians said that Brown will be a game-time decision this week. He also said Vita Vea “moved around pretty well” during the full speed portion of practice.

“Antonio, he’ll be a game-time decision,” Arians told reporters. “He wouldn’t have to practice – he’s veteran enough and he knows what he’s doing. We’ll see what happens. Vita moved around pretty good today when it was full speed.”

Vea is still on IR even though the Bucs recently opened the 21-day window for a potential return.

There were two changes for the Packers. Tight end Marcedes Lewis was downgraded from a limited participant on Wednesday to out on Thursday and safety Will Redmond was downgraded from a full participant to limited.

Be sure to check back in Friday for the final injury report of the week.
