Buccaneers-Falcons Injury Report, Oct. 10: O.J. Howard Back to Practice Already

Wednesday’s practice marked the healthiest the Buccaneers have been all season coming off their Week Five bye.


Every single Buccaneer on the roster practiced on Wednesday. It's true. Five players were limited but everyone participated in some capacity. The biggest surprise was that tight end O.J. Howard was back already after it was initially thought he wouldn't be back on the field for another few weeks. The Bucs' defensive line seems to be nearing full capacity as well with defensive tackle Vita Vea taken off the injury report entirely for the first time this season and Beau Allen practicing in a limited capacity.

A couple key players for the Falcons were held out in both running back Devonta Freeman and defensive tackle Grady Jarrett who both did not practice Wednesday. Wide receiver Mohamed Sanu, defensive end Derrick Shelby and cornerback Justin Bethel were also all limited.
