Saints-Buccaneers Injury Report Dec. 16: Winfield, Dean, Fournette, Sherman Sit Out Second Straight Day

There was only one change to the Bucs’ injury report on Thursday.


The Buccaneers practiced fully on Thursday but player statuses remained largely the same. The only change for Tampa Bay was that of quarterback Tom Brady, who sat out practice on a rest day.

It meant that players like cornerback Jamel Dean, running back Leonard Fournette, cornerback Richard Sherman and safety Antoine Winfield Jr. sat out for the second-straight day. No changes brings good news for safety Jordan Whitehead, though. He practiced for the second consecutive day, albeit on a limited basis, which bodes well for his possible return this Sunday against the Saints.

New Orleans also had minimal change to their practice report. Safety Chauncey Gardner-Johnson was upgraded to full participation while wide receiver Lil'Jordan Humphrey was upgraded to limited participation.
