Buccaneers-Saints Injury Report Oct. 28: Two Players Upgraded

The Bucs got defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh back in a full capacity on Thursday after a mostly unchanged practice report.


There wasn't much movement for either team on Thursday's injury report. The Buccaneers got defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh back in a full capacity after Head Coach Bruce Arians said he was dealing with a knee issue. Arians didn't seem too concerned and his status at practice on Thursday confirmed it. Tampa Bay also saw tight end O.J. Howard return in a full capacity after being limited on Wednesday. Veteran defensive tackle Steve McLendon was given a veteran day off. Tight end Rob Gronkowski, inside linebacker Lavonte David and cornerback Richard Sherman, three players Arians said could return for Sunday's game in New Orleans, remain limited.

The Saints upgraded wide receiver Deonte Harris to a limited participant after he was sidelined on Wednesday.
