Buccaneers-Texans Injury Report Dec. 17: 13 Players Listed After Tuesday's Walk-Through Practice

The Buccaneers listed 13 players on their injury report during Tuesday’s walk-through practice.


With the disclaimer that Tuesday's practice was a walk-through and statuses were an 'estimation,' the Buccaneers listed 13 players on the injury report, with eight holding DNP designations.

Though wide receiver Scotty Miller appears on the report, he has been moved to Injured Reserve as of Tuesday, with the team signing Cyril Grayson in his place and bringing back wide receiver Spencer Schnell to the practice squad. As far as pass catchers go, neither receiver Mike Evans or Chris Godwin practiced, both dealing with hamstring injuries. Tight end Tanner Hudson was also added to the report, suffering a concussion in Sunday's game against the Lions.

More new additions came in kicker Matt Gay, dealing with a right groin injury, center Ryan Jensen, who suffered an elbow injury and safety Jordan Whitehead, also nursing a hamstring injury he suffered on Sunday.

Encouraging news comes for the outside linebackers, though, as rookie Anthony Nelson starts the week with full participation along with Jason Pierre-Paul.

The Texans had just three players sit out practice during their walk-through practice on Tuesday. Most notable was running back Carlos Hyde, who participated in a limited capacity.
