Buccaneers-Patriots Injury Report Sept. 30: Gronkowski Remains Out

The Buccaneers were again without tight end Rob Gronkowski in practice on Thursday but returned wide receiver Antonio Brown from the reserve/COVID-19 list.


Tampa Bay's injury report remained largely unchanged on Thursday, with tight end Rob Gronkowski, outside linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul and running back Giovani Bernard all still absent from the AdventHealth Training Center practice fields. The Bucs did return a player not featured on the injury report though, activating wide receiver Antonio Brown from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday. Brown was back at practice and ready to go for Sunday's game.

Defensive lineman Steve McLendon was excused from practice on a normal veteran day off for him while the Patriots added safety Kyle Dugger to their practice report. He practiced in a limited capacity.
