Thursday Injury Report: Improvement for Bucs

The most significant news regarding the Buccaneers’ injury report on Wednesday was that CB E.J. Biggers and G Jeremy Zuttah, two starters who sustained injuries in the Week 16 game against St. Louis, were not on the practice field.  Similarly, the key development on Thursday was that both Biggers (hip) and Zuttah (ankle) returned to action.

In fact, both players were full participants in the week’s second practice, as were TEs Dallas Clark and Nate Byham, who sat out on Wednesday due to illness.  The only Buccaneers who did not practice on Thursday were G Roger Allen (groin) and T Donald Penn (not injury related).

The Falcons’ injury report did not change at all from Wednesday to Thursday, with starters DE Jonathan Babineaux (ribs), S William Moore (hamstring), and WR Roddy White (knee) all sitting out another day.  Atlanta Head Coach Mike Smith has already said that Moore, who has missed the last three games as well, is unlikely to play on Sunday.

Here are the full Thursday injury reports for both teams:
