A few injured Buccaneers players returned to practice Wednesday, including wide receiver Michael Clayton (knee) and tight end John Gilmore (head).
In addition to Clayton and Gilmore, Bucs WR Antonio Bryant (groin), running back Cadillac Williams (team decision), tight end Kellen Winslow (knee) and safety Tanard Jackson (knee) were limited. Gilmore still is listed on the injury report, but with an illness.
Winslow and Bryant are Tampa Bay's leading receivers with 68 and 32 receptions, respectively. The Bucs are hoping they can play since the team had to place rookie WR Sammie Stroughter (foot), who had 32 catches for 533 yards and one score, on injured reserve earlier this week.
