Cowboys-Buccaneers Injury Report Sept. 8: Jordan Whitehead Officially Ruled Out

The Bucs will begin their season without starting safety Jordan Whitehead, who was officially ruled out of Thursday’s game.


Head Coach Bruce Arians let media know on Tuesday that the Bucs would be without starting safety Jordan Whitehead for their season opener against the Dallas Cowboys and the team made it official on Wednesday's estimated injury report.

The Bucs didn't hold practice, as is customary, the day before the game. Because of the short week, Tampa Bay had a bit of a different schedule than normal so all participation designations below are estimates.

After holding a walk-through on Tuesday, the Cowboys practiced Wednesday before making the two-hour trek to Tampa. No one has been ruled out for Dallas and all players practiced fully. Offensive guard Zack Martin remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
