  • Buccaneers' Julio Jones: Could be game-time call

    Jones (knee) could be a game-time decision ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Chiefs, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

    Jones was a limited practice participant Wednesday through Friday, but coach Todd Bowles said the real question is how the veteran wideout's body responds after a day of rest. The Bucs may thus treat both Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Jones as game-time decisions, with the latter seemingly more likely to play. Breshad Perriman, meanwhile, will be listed as doubtful with a hamstring injury, which leaves Scotty Miller as the No. 3 receiver in the unlikely event of both Godwin and Jones sitting out another week. Mike Evans is back from a one-game suspension, and Russell Gage is coming off his best game of the season in Week 3.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Headed for game-time decision

    Coach Todd Bowles said Godwin (hamstring) will be a game-time decision Sunday against the Chiefs, Jenna Laine of ESPN.comreports.

    Bowles said the same is true for Julio Jones, who was a limited practice participant all week after missing the past two games with a hip injury. Breshad Perriman, meanwhile, will be listed as doubtful with a hamstring issue, though he might've been sliding back to a depth role this week even if he'd remained healthy. Godwin appears truly questionable entering the weekend and likely will be listed as such on the final injury report.

  • Buccaneers' Breshad Perriman: No practice Thursday

    Perriman (knee/hamstring) didn't practice Thursday.

    Perriman was able to play through a knee injury Weeks 2 and 3 en route to a cumulative 6-89-1 line on nine targets. Even if he's able to make himself available Sunday against the Chiefs, he has yet to practice this week, while all of Chris Godwin (hamstring), Julio Jones (knee) and Russell Gage (hamstring) have managed at least one capped session. As a result, Perriman seems like the least likely of the aforementioned wide receivers to be available this weekend, which could be confirmed as of the release of Friday's injury report.

  • Buccaneers' Russell Gage: Another limited showing

    Gage (hamstring) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday.

    Both Gage and Julio Jones (knee) had a cap on their reps in the second session of Week 4 prep, while Chris Godwin (hamstring) was given a veteran rest day Thursday, and Breshad Perriman (knee/hamstring) has yet to practice this week. Among the quartet, Gage and Jones seem like the best bets to work alongside Mike Evans on Sunday against the Chiefs, but Friday's injury report may clear up the overall situation upon its release.

  • Buccaneers' Julio Jones: Stays limited Thursday

    Jones (knee) practiced on a limited basis Thursday.

    Jones maintained his activity level from one day prior as he attempts to gain clearance for game action for the first time since Week 1, the result of a partially torn PCL in his knee. Friday's practice report may provide some clarity into Jones' potential to play Sunday versus the Chiefs, along with that of fellow wide receivers Chris Godwin (hamstring), Russell Gage (hamstring) and Breshad Perriman (knee/hamstring).

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Rest day Thursday

    Godwin (hamstring) received a veteran rest day Thursday, Brianna Dix of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    One day removed from logging a limited practice for the first time since injuring his hamstring in the season opener, Godwin got the day off Thursday. His activity level at Friday's session may provide insight into his potential to return Sunday against the Chiefs, but at this point he seems destined to enter the weekend with a 'questionable' designation.

  • Buccaneers' Akiem Hicks: Sits out Wednesday

    Hicks (foot) did not participate during the Buccaneers' practice Wednesday.

    Hicks missed Sunday's loss to the Packers due to a torn plantar fascia in his foot, which is expected to keep him sidelined over the next three games as well. In the 32-year-old's absence, veterans Rakeem Nunez-Roches and William Gholston both saw increased usage in Week 3, playing 57 percent and 55 percent of Tampa Bay's defensive snaps, respectively. Unless Hicks is available to return, the Buccaneers likely will continue to lean on these two and rookie Logan Hall (groin) in Week 4 versus Kansas City.

  • Buccaneers' Cade Otton: Clear of injury report

    Otton (personal) was not listed on the Buccaneers' injury report Wednesday.

    Otton appears ready to return after missing Week 3's loss to the Packers due to personal reasons. The rookie tight end recorded one reception for four yards on two targets while playing 63 offensive snaps over the first two weeks of the season, though he figures to see increased targets if wideouts Chris Godwin (hamstring), Julio Jones (knee), Russell Gage (hamstring) and Breshad Perriman (knee/hamstring) are sidelined in Week 4.

  • Buccaneers' Breshad Perriman: Has pair of injuries

    Perriman (knee/hamstring) was a non-participant at practice Wednesday.

    Perriman was listed with a knee injury on Week 2 and 3 practice reports, but he now has an additional injury to worry about heading into Week 4. With Mike Evans back from his one-game suspension and Chris Godwin (hamstring), Julio Jones (knee) and Russell Gage (hamstring) all practicing in a limited capacity Wednesday, Perriman soon may be returning to a tertiary role in Tampa Bay's passing game, assuming he's active at all Sunday versus the Chiefs.

  • Buccaneers' Russell Gage: Limited practice Wednesday

    Gage (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Wednesday.

    Gage joined Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Julio Jones (knee) as limited participants, while Breshad Perriman (knee/hamstring) was unable to practice at all. Elsewhere in Tampa Bay's receiving corps, Mike Evans wasn't listed on the injury report as he returns from a one-game suspension. If one or both of Godwin and Jones is able to play Sunday versus the Chiefs, Gage would have a tough time replicating the 13 targets he drew when Evans, Godwin and Jones were sidelined during a Week 3 loss to the Packers.

  • Buccaneers' Julio Jones: Another limited practice

    Jones (knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday.

    Jones hasn't played since Week 1 due to what has been described as a partially torn PCL in his knee, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. After Sunday's loss to the Packers, head coach Todd Bowles told Rob Maaddi of The Associated Press that Jones could have played Week 3, but the Buccaneers held him out as a precaution. Jones now has logged capped practices going back to last Friday, and if he maintains such activity or gets back to full participation later this week, he's a good bet to return to action Sunday night against the Chiefs.

  • Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Returns to limited practice

    Godwin (hamstring) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday.

    The limited session marks Godwin's first on-field work since hurting his hamstring back in Week 1. It's a sign that he's attempting to ramp for a return Sunday against the Chiefs, but his ability to get through practice Thursday and Friday unscathed likely will go a long way in allowing him to return from a two-game absence. Meanwhile, Russell Gage (hamstring) and Julio Jones (knee) were also limited participants in the Bucs' first Week 4 practice, and Breshad Perriman (knee/hamstring) didn't participate.
