Nicks Returns to Full Practice Participation

The Buccaneers’ Thursday injury report was an improvement over Wednesday’s list, as both starting left guard Carl Nicks and reserve linebacker Dekoda Watson returned to full participation on the practice field.  The two had been limited on Wednesday with toe and chest ailments, respectively.  That left the Bucs with only one player on their current 53-man roster who was not able to practice fully on Thursday: cornerback Anthony Gaitor.  Gaitor has yet to play during the regular season due to a hamstring injury suffered near the end of the preseason.

The only change to Washington’s injury report on Thursday was an addition.  WR Brandon Banks, who was not on the report to start the week, was added with a hip injury after being limited on Thursday.  Banks is the Redskins primary kickoff and punt returner.  Here’s Thursday’s full list for both teams:
