The first injury report ahead of the Bucs’ Week Nine matchup with the Carolina Panthers in Charlotte has a few more additions for the Buccaneers. Those of note seem to be wide receiver Mike Evans, who is battling a knee injury and cornerback M.J. Stewart who has an injured foot. Both were held completely out of practice. However, the Bucs got both Vinny Curry and Gerald McCoy back, who each practiced on a limited basis.
The Panthers had a total of three guys out. Quarterback Cam Newton continues to battle a shoulder injury while veteran tight end Greg Olsen continues to fight through his foot injury.
