Tampa Bay’s injury report to open the week of practice leading up to the Denver game was short – that’s what happens when injured reserve claims a handful of players – but it would have been even shorter if not for something apparently going around. C Ted Larsen was limited on Wednesday and DT Roy Miller did not practice at all due to illness.
Otherwise, the remainder of the Buccaneers’ active roster was able to practice without limits on Wednesday. That was mostly true for the Broncos, too, as they had just one player sitting out: DE Robert Ayers, and that was not injury related.
Here are the full week-opening injury reports for both teams, though there isn’t much of concern on either list:
