Lions-Buccaneers Injury Report Dec. 12: Alex Cappa Upgraded to Full Participation

The Buccaneers upgraded four players on Thursday’s injury report.


The Bucs got some good news with both right tackle Demar Dotson and outside linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul returning to practice, though Pierre-Paul was still limited. Right guard Alex Cappa was upgraded to full participation, as was wide receiver Scotty Miller. Defensive lineman Beau Allen was added to the report with an ankle injury but he still practiced fully. Outside linebacker Anthony Nelson practiced again on a limited basis, which is good news for the rookie as well.

Meanwhile, the Lions downgraded both Damon "Snacks" Harrison and Bo Scarbrough from limited participation. Neither player participated in practice on Thursday.
