Injury Report: All Bucs Probable

Every player on Tampa Bay’s 53-man roster was able to practice without limitations on Friday afternoon, as the Bucs finished their preparations for Sunday’s game at Oakland.  As such, the team expects to have all 53 men available in California this weekend.

Tampa Bay’s injury list was only four players long this week (with, of course, the move of G Carl Nicks to injured reserve), and all four were designated as “probable” on Friday’s injury report.  The Friday report is the first one of the week that includes Game Status designations.  DE Michael Bennett, T Donald Penn and CBs Brandon McDonald and Eric Wright should be good to go against the Raiders.

Oakland’s injury report was quite a bit longer than the one submitted by Tampa Bay, but it really only includes a couple question marks.  T Khalif Barnes (groin) and CB Shawntae Spencer (foot) have already been ruled out and the Raiders should also be without LB Keenan Clayton (shoulder), who is listed as doubtful.  Of the other players on Oakland’s 17-man list, only two – RB Taiwan Jones (knee) and LB Rolando McClain (toe) – are designated as questionable.

Here are the official injury reports for both teams at the end of the week: 


Player Injury Practice Status Game Status
DE Michael Bennett Ankle Full Participation Probable
CB Brandon McDonald Ankle Full Participation Probable
T Donald Penn Wrist Full Participation Probable
CB Eric Wright Achilles Full Participation Probable
