The Buccaneers had minimal changes to Thursday's injury report but did get some good news. Cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting returned to practice in a limited capacity. Murphy-Bunting missed Sunday's Wild Card matchup with the Eagles after being a late scratch with a hamstring injury. The Bucs are hoping he'll be ready to go for the Divisional Round against a Rams team that has a plethora of offensive weapons to contend with.
Meanwhile, right tackle Tristan Wirfs and center Ryan Jensen were held out of practice for the second day in a row. Both sustained ankle injuries against the Eagles last Sunday, though Jensen was able to finish the game.
The only other changes to the Tampa Bay practice report were veteran days for both quarterback Tom Brady and defensive tackle Steve McLendon. That has become routine for both players, especially toward the back half of the season.
The Rams had no changes to their Thursday practice report.
