The Buccaneers were without center Jeff Faine in practice on Thursday. Faine had an elbow injury last week before the Bucs game against the Saints, but the veteran center still started and played at New Orleans. Faine did not participate in Thursday's practice due to a back injury.
"Faine is sore, it is 16 weeks of injuries," Morris said.
Running back Derrick Ward (knee), guard Jeremy Zuttah (toe), and defensive tackle Roy Miller (hamstring) had limited participation in practice. Tight end Kellen Winslow (knee) had full participation. Defensive tackle Chris Hovan was out with an illness.
