Wednesday marked the return of Rob Gronkowski, Richard Sherman, and Lavonte David to practice for the Buccaneers while Scotty Miller and Sean Murphy-Bunting did some side drills with a trainer. This is welcome news for a Bucs team that's been decimated by injury this season. Unfortunately, there's still some injuries affecting the team.

Receiver Antonio Brown was spotted with a crutch as he deals with an ankle injury. Head coach Bruce Arians didn't seem optimistic about Brown's return, saying it could be a soon as Washington or could be multiple weeks. Given the history between Mike Evans and Marshon Lattimore, it could be a big week for Chris Godwin as well as O.J. Howard, depending on Gronk's status.

Jason Pierre-Paul, Ndamukong Suh, and Dee Delaney all missed practice with injury while Gio Bernard and Jamel Dean were full participants.

For the Saints, they will be without Ken Crawley and Lil'Jordan Humphrey as the two were placed on the Reserve/Covid list. They may also be without offensive lineman Andrus Peat who is dealing with a pectoral injury. Other "Did not participate" players - even though the Saints didn't actually practice on Wednesday - were Taysom Hill, Deonte Harris, Payton Turner, and Dwayne Washington.
