The Buccaneers hit the road this week as they head to one of the toughest places in the league to play. Arrowhead Stadium is always a hostile environment for the road team, and their Kansas City Chiefs (7-2) enter the week tied for the AFC West lead and riding a five-game winning streak.
The Bucs enter the game with a record of 4-5, tied for second in the NFC South with the New Orleans Saints. They are coming off of an absolute drubbing of the Chicago Bears last week, by the score of 36-10.
A weapon is coming back into the fold. Russell Shepard practiced in full, which lends towards the idea that he will play on Sunday, barring setbacks.
Here is the rest of the report:
|Joe Hawley||68||C||Knee||Limited Participation|
|Kevin Pamphile||64||G||Concussion||Full Participation|
|Jacquizz Rodgers||32||RB||Foot||Did Not Participate|
|Russell Shepard||89||WR||Hip||Full Participation|
|Evan Smith||62||C||Knee||Did Not Participate|
|Luke Stocker||88||TE||Ankle||Did Not Participate|
Hawley returned on a limited basis, which is a good sign, considering that Evan Smith sat out. I mean, somebody has to play center. Right?
Here is the report for the Chiefs:
|D.J. Alexander||57||LB||Neck||Full Participation|
|Phillip Gaines||23||CB||Neck||Limited Participation|
|Tamba Hali||91||LB||Knee||Did Not Participate|
|Jaye Howard||96||DE||Hip||Did Not Participate|
|Justin Houston||50||LB||Knee||Full Participation|
|Derrick Johnson||56||LB||Hamstring||Did Not Participate|
|Jeremy Maclin||19||WR||Groin||Did Not Participate|
|Marcus Peters||22||CB||Hip||Did Not Participate|
|Dontari Poe||92||DT||Knee||Did Not Participate|
|D.J. White||24||CB||Hand||Full Participation|
|James Winchester||41||LS||Not Injury Related||Did Not Participate|
Yep, Houston is back. We all know that could be very bad. Let’s hope they are scheming to stop him now.
Tamba Hali, however, did not practice. We will watch that and all the injuries as the week progresses.
