Buccaneers vs. 49ers: Wednesday Injury Report for Week 7

The Buccaneers injury report remains long as we come out of the bye week.

Time to get back to football action, Buccaneers’ fans. The bye week is in the rear-view mirror and our team gets back to work, heading to California to face the 49ers. Colin Kaepernick will make his second start of the season after an average performance against the Bills in a losing cause.

It will be interesting to watch how he performs against an underperforming Bucs’ secondary, to say the least.

With that, we get back to the business of game preparation, and that means the injury report. The team was back at practice today, so we have the first report of the week.

First for the Bucs:

Player No. Pos. Injury Wednesday
Robert Ayers 91 DE Ankle Did Not Participate
Joe Hawley 68 C Knee Limited Participation
Doug Martin 22 RB Hamstring Did Not Participate
Gerald McCoy 93 DT Calf Limited Participation
Clinton McDonald 98 DT Hamstring Did Not Participate
Cecil Shorts III 10 WR Hamstring Limited Participation
Luke Stocker 88 TE Ankle Full Participation

Well, so much for getting everybody back I guess. Certainly, having Stocker back as a full-go is a good sign. Having McCoy is a plus, even on a limited basis early in the week.

The two biggest stories are Robert Ayers and Doug Martin, both held out of practice. The news remains the most bleak for Martin. Take a look at what Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times let us know via Twitter:

So there’s that. I guess it’s going to be the Jacquizz Rodgers show for a while, huh?

Now for the 49ers.

Player No. Pos. Injury Wednesday
Arik Armstead 91 DT Shoulder Full Participation
Zane Beadles 68 G Ankle Full Participation
DeForest Buckner 99 DT Foot Full Participation
Quinton Dial 92 DT Knee Full Participation
Glenn Dorsey 90 DT Knee Full Participation
Joshua Garnett 65 G Foot Limited Participation
Carlos Hyde 28 RB Shoulder Did Not Participate
Jeremy Kerley 17 WR Ankle Full Participation
Vance McDonald 89 TE Hip Full Participation
Rashard Robinson 33 CB Concussion Did Not Participate
Jaquiski Tartt 29 S Quadriceps Limited Participation
Jimmie Ward 25 CB Quadriceps Full Participation

The biggest name out of practice on this list was Carlos Hyde. We will keep an eye on this as always to see if he jumps back into the fray before the week ends.

We will be back each day to follow up on the practice reports.
