The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released the second injury report of the week and there were quite a few changes from Wednesday’s report.
For starters, tight end Cameron Brate was added to the list as a limited participant after a routine day on Wednesday. Per Rick Stroud of The Tampa Bay Times, Brate’s issue is a back strain.

Limited participation means that Brate is still on track to play, but this will certainly be something to keep an eye on. Wide receiver Antonio Brown’s status was upgraded from limited to full participation on Thursday, so he should definitely play Sunday unless something drastic changes. Steve McLendon missed practice, but the reason was listed as non-injury related and Jason Pierre-Paul practiced on a limited basis.
Bruce Arians also offered an update on running back Kenjon Barner.
“He is practicing and it will be a late call to see if we activate him for the ballgame,” Arians said. “Jaydon Mickens has been handling the return stuff, but Kenjon is an excellent special teams guy for us. If we can get him up, we will get him up.”
Be sure to check back on Friday for the final injury report.
