According to the final injury report of the week, the Buccaneers will be without just one player for their home opener on Sunday. That player is tight end Antony Auclair, who is battling a calf injury sustained this week. Both receivers Chris Godwin and Mike Evans were upgraded with the latter practicing fully for the first time since the season began.
Godwin was limited in Friday's practice and has been officially been listed as "doubtful" for Sunday's game as it remains unclear if he'll be able to exit concussion protocol in time to take on the Carolina Panthers. The other four players listed on the Bucs' injury report should be ready to go for the divisional matchup.
The Panthers will be without defensive tackle Kawann Short, guard Dennis Daley and defensive end Yetur Gross-Matos.
