Turns out the Buccaneers will be without Adam Humphries on Sunday. Here is the rest of the final injury report.
More from The Pewter Plank
If the Buccaneers are going to keep this winning streak alive, they are going to have to do it without Adam Humphries. Although he practiced in full on Friday, coach Dirk Koetter has listed him as out for Sunday’s game.
Josh Huff already has been added to the roster, and don’t be surprised if we see Donteea Dye promoted as well, thanks to the depth problems at wide receiver.
It appears that Sunday will mark the return of Charles Sims, which is welcome news for a running attack that has lacked the expected luster. A three-way tandem of Doug Martin, Sims, and Jacquizz Rodgers could prove to be a very formidable group on Sunday and beyond.
Let’s get to the final injury report, first for the Bucs:
|Chris Conte||23||S||Chest||Did Not Participate||Did Not Participate||Did Not Participate||Out|
|Demar Dotson||69||T||Concussion||Did Not Participate||Did Not Participate||Did Not Participate||Out|
|Adam Humphries||11||WR||Concussion||Did Not Participate||Limited Participation||Full Participation||Out|
|Luke Stocker||88||TE||Ankle||Did Not Participate||Did Not Participate||Did Not Participate||Out|
|Gerald McCoy||93||DT||Foot||Did Not Participate||Did Not Participate||Limited Participation||Questionable|
|Evan Smith||62||C||Knee||Limited Participation||Limited Participation||Full Participation||Questionable|
|Alterraun Verner||21||CB||Not Injury Related||Did Not Participate||Did Not Participate||Full Participation||–|
The best news out of that group is that McCoy returned to practice. It sounds like the big guy might just be around when the Bucs take the field against the Saints.
With Dotson out, Gosder Cherilus will start in his place.
Now we have the report for the Saints:
|Terron Armstead||72||T||Knee/Quadriceps||Limited Participation||Did Not Participate||Limited Participation||Questionable|
|Mark Ingram||22||RB||Toe/Knee||Limited Participation||Did Not Participate||Limited Participation||Questionable|
|Senio Kelemete||65||G||Hip||Limited Participation||Limited Participation||Limited Participation||Questionable|

|Craig Robertson||52||LB||Shoulder||Did Not Participate||Did Not Participate||Did Not Participate||Questionable|

|Max Unger||60||C||Foot||Limited Participation||Did Not Participate||Did Not Participate||Questionable|
|Josh Hill||89||TE||Fibula||Did Not Participate||Did Not Participate||–||–|
The lethal Michael Thomas did return to practice, albeit on a limited basis. We can still hope that he is not ready to suit up come Sunday. I’m sure, however, he will do all he can to be ready for a big divisional matchup.
RayJay should be pumping on Sunday.
