Tampa Bay has a season-high 11 players on its injury list, while the St. Louis Rams enter the NFC Championship with just two players. The Bucs will be without special teams standout LB Al Singleton (left leg fracture). QB Trent Dilfer (right clavicle fracture) and WR Reidel Anthony (left quadriceps strain) are also likely to miss Sunday's contest.
The nine other Buccaneers are all listed as probable and should play, according to Tampa Bay Buccaneers Head Coach Tony Dungy.
"We're actually in pretty good shape," Dungy said. "Al Singleton says he's going to play but he has a broken leg, so I doubt he'll be able to play. Reidel Anthony has a pulled muscle and looks like he is going to be doubtful, but other than that we're in pretty good shape."
DT Warren Sapp, who suffered a right hamstring strain against Washington, left practice early for precautionary reasons. Sapp felt soreness in the later part of practice, but will return to action tomorrow.
CB Donnie Abraham (right knee sprain), DT Brad Culpepper (right foot sprain), S John Lynch (left quadriceps contusion), RB Warrick Dunn (left ankle sprain), DE John McLaughlin (left foot strain), CB Ronde Barber (left knee laceration) and S Damien Robinson (left hip strain) are all listed as probable for Sunday's game.
