Buccaneers-Colts Injury Report Dec. 5: Jason Pierre-Paul, Demar Dotson Return to Practice

Thursday’s injury report has three players returning to practice for the Buccaneers.


Good news for the Buccaneers as the team returned three players to practice on Thursday. Both right tackle Demar Dotson and defensive lineman Rakeem Nuñez-Roches practiced fully for the team's second practice of the week. Outside linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul returned as well, although in a limited capacity. It left just three players with DNP designations, including right guard Alex Cappa, who is still battling his elbow injury sustained last Sunday against the Jaguars.

The Colts weren't as fortunate, downgrading both safety Malik Hooker and kicker Adam Vinatieri to DNP designations. Indianapolis also added cornerback Rock Ya-Sin to the injury report with an ankle issue. They did, however, return running back Marlon Mack back to full strength. And no, I won't say it.
