Panthers-Buccaneers Injury Report Oct. 9: Bucs Ndamukong Suh, Panthers Christian McCaffrey Held Out

The Buccaneers and Panthers released their first injury report of the week ahead of their Week Six matchup in London revealing seven players who were held out for the Bucs, including defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.


The Buccaneers are again on a little bit different of a week ahead of their Week Six matchup with the Carolina Panthers in London on Sunday. They held a normal practice schedule on their first day back to work on Wednesday and there were a total of seven players held out. Wide receiver Chris Godwin, who has been battling a hip injury, was once again limited as well.

Among those held out was defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, though Head Coach Bruce Arians said he, along with everyone other than Alex Cappa, had minor injuries. Cappa broke his arm in the second quarter of last Sunday's game against the Saints in New Orleans but proceeded to finish the game. He will 'miss a few weeks' according to Arians, who revealed the injury to the media on Monday.

Most notably for the Panthers, 10 players were held out of practice entirely with 13 players appearing in total on their injury report, including running back Christian McCaffrey who has a back issue and sat out of Wednesday's practice. McCaffrey, who the Bucs held to 37 yards on the ground in Week 2, had 176 yards rushing last week against Jacksonville and is an integral part of the Panthers' offense.
