Buccaneers-Panthers Injury Report Nov. 12: CB Carlton Davis Sits Out

The Buccaneers returned two players to full participation while cornerback Carlton Davis was sidelined with a knee injury.


There were a few changes to Tampa Bay's injury report on Thursday. First, the good news: both Lavonte David and Rob Gronkowski returned to full capacity. David had been limited with a knee issue while Gronkowski had a maintenance day on Wednesday.

The bad news is that cornerback Carlton Davis was added to Thursday's practice report as a non-participant due to a knee issue. That is a change from yesterday's report where he did not appear.

The Panthers added three players to their report, including defensive end Brian Burns and linebacker Tahir Whitehead, though the latter's absence from practice was not injury related. Burns was limited. Running back Christian McCaffrey did not practice for the second straight day as he works through a shoulder injury. The Panthers also moved Justin Burris to Injured Reserve and removed him from their practice report.
