Friday Injury Report: Meredith Questionable

The practice fields in Tampa and Charlotte were full on Friday, and it appears the Buccaneers have the only game-day question mark heading into the weekend.

The Panthers have already declared one player out for Sunday’s game, as reserve DE Antwan Applewhite will be unavailable due to a hamstring injury.  However, the other eight players on Carolina’s Friday injury report all practice fully on the final day of the week and are considered probable to play against the Buccaneers.

The same is true for the Buccaneers, who have a six-person injury report with five players listed as probable for Sunday’s game. The question mark is starting right guard Jamon Meredith, who hurt his ankle in practice on Wednesday and is questionable for the game.  Still, that can be seen as something of an optimistic listing, as Meredith was able to return to the practice field Friday, albeit in limited fashion.  Head Coach Greg Schiano said he is still hoping that Meredith is ready to go by Sunday at 1:00 p.m.

Here are the full end-of-the-week injury reports for both teams:
