The Buccaneers defensive line got a needed boost on Wednesday as reserve defensive end William Gholston (shoulder) and backup three-technique tackle Da’Quan Bowers (groin) returned to practice, but left guard Logan Mankins and running back Doug Martin sat out with leg injuries, and rookie tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins and defensive end Michael Johnson were out with an ankle injury. Mankins, Martin, Seferian-Jenkins and Johnson all suffered their injuries in Tampa Bay’s 20-14 season opening loss to Carolina.
Seferian-Jenkins and running back Charles Sims were seen wearing walking boots today in the Bucs locker room. Sims had ankle surgery during the preseason and is on injured reserve with a designation to return.
Also returning to practice was reserve safety Bradley McDougald, who was injured in the preseason, while reserve cornerback Rashaan Melvin is still out with an ankle injury.
The Bucs and Rams will release injury reports later today. Stay tuned to PewterReport.com for details.
