The Buccaneers are coming off a Week Seven bye, giving the team a chance to heal up and get some much-needed rest. As a result, only five players are listed on Tampa Bay’s first injury report of the week, with just two players sidelined entirely.
The most notable name on the injured list is tight end O.J. Howard, who is battling a hamstring injury. He was limited in Wednesday’s padded practice along with right tackle Demar Dotson, who was held out of Week Seven’s contest in London against the Carolina Panthers with a hamstring issue of his own. Wide receiver Breshad Perriman also missed that game but returned to practice – and full participation – on Wednesday. After sitting out practice entirely, Head Coach Bruce Arians has ruled out both linebacker Jack Cichy, who suffered an elbow injury during Week Four and offensive lineman Alex Cappa, who broke his arm against the Saints in Week Five, for Sunday’s game.
The Titans are coming off a Week Seven win over the Los Angeles Chargers but seem to be paying for it in the form of their injury report, which lists 11 players, including wide receiver Corey Davis and tight end Delanie Walker who were both sidelined on Wednesday.
