After coming off the bye week relatively healthy last week, the Buccaneers are facing some injuries going into their first home contest in a month against the Cleveland Browns. Most notably, Vinny Curry and Gerald McCoy were not practicing for the Buccaneers. The good news is, they were the only two. Both rookie defensive backs Carlton Davis and Jordan Whitehead are still battling lingering injuries but practicing, even in a limited capacity, is a good sign. Quarterback Jameis Winston was also added to the injury report although he participated fully.
The Browns held three players out of practice, including center JC Tretter.
