Good news came on Thursday for the Bucs' secondary as cornerback Carlton Davis returned to practice in a limited capacity. Davis suffered a hip injury during pregame warmups in Seattle, missing the game against the Seahawks and last week's contest against the Arizona Cardinals. The Bucs promoted cornerback Mazzi Wilkins from the practice squad but could use a healthy Davis on the field.
Both left guard Ali Marpet and right tackle Demar Dotson were upgraded to full participation, as well, which is good news for a Bucs' offensive line that will have to stand up to New Orleans' aggressive front seven.
The Saints had no changes from Wednesday's injury report with four players, including cornerback Marshon Lattimore, carrying DNP designations.
