Wednesday Injury Report: Bennett Not Limited

The Buccaneers win at Minnesota on Thursday night was three hours of almost uninterrupted enjoyment capped by a couple minutes of worry.  That’s because, after the Buccaneers’ very last defensive play of the game (a Leonard Johnson interception), DE Michael Bennett needed attention from the team’s trainers after injuring his ankle.

A significant injury to the team’s 2012 sack leader would have been a bad way to end a great night, but fortunately it appears as if Bennett will be fine.  Though he was held out of the team’s “bonus practice” on Monday, he was right back on the field Wednesday.  Bennett is listed on the team’s official injury report this week, but he is marked as “full participation” on Wednesday.

The Bucs’ more pressing concern – no pun intended – appears to be at cornerback, where both Eric Wright (Achilles) and Brandon McDonald (ankle) were limited to start the week.  Here are the official injury reports for both teams on Wednesday:
