Cowboys-Buccaneers Injury Report Sept. 7: Bucs Hold Out Vets, Add Chris Godwin

Multiple veteran players were added to the Buccaneers' injury report ahead of Thursday's season opener against the Dallas Cowboys.


The Buccaneers added four players to the second injury report of opening week as they rested veterans Rob Gronkowski, Jason Pierre-Paul and Steve McLendon. The only other addition was wide receiver Chris Godwin, who was limited in practice with a quad injury.

Game statuses have not been released but with starting safety Jordan Whitehead held out of practice again, Head Coach Bruce Arians said Tuesday that he will be out for Thursday's opener. It will be safety Mike Edwards who will likely fill the role, as he's done all throughout training camp.

The Cowboys added long snapper Jake McQuaide to their report with a foot injury, though he also participated fully. Tackle Ty Nsekhe remains the only limited participant for Dallas.
