The only two changes to the Bucs' injury report for Thursday regarded two rookie defensive backs. Cornerback Carlton Davis was a full participant after being limited on Wednesday. He has been battling a back injury but seems to be good to go. On the other hand, safety Jordan Whitehead ended up not practicing after being limited on Wednesday. Whitehead is dealing with a nagging hamstring, which we all know are fickle things.
Speaking of fickle injuries, Browns' cornerback E.J. Gaines was added to the injury report with a concussion. With it happening this late in the week, you have to think his chances of playing Sunday are slim.
