Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Raheem Morris addressed the minor injuries of his players that are starting to add up. A number of players sat out of Thursday's practice including center Jeff Faine (groin), wide receiver Antonio Bryant (knee), running back Derrick Ward (foot), and defensive end Kyle Moore (shoulder). Wide receiver Kelly Campbell (quad) left practice early with his injury. Morris discussed the injuries and indicated none of them are serious long-term injuries.
"Antonio Bryant is day-to-day. He actually ran some routes yesterday in practice, and he should be ready to go tomorrow," said Morris. "We'll let him get a good night's sleep and see how he feels. Kyle Moore had a minor shoulder, he is day-to-day, and nothing to really talk about. [Derrick] Ward had a foot sprain. He is definitely day-to-day. He is walking around in a precautionary boot, so he is definitely day-to-day. You don't have to worry about writing a major story on the Bucs hiding injuries. We have a boot on him for stabilization.
"The only significant one is Clayton, and it is a lot better than we thought. It is not severe at all. He is probably next week, but he'll get several days, and it may be a blessing in disguise because of hard he was practicing as you guys can see. He has a little bit of a hamstring that is deeper than the other ones. He is week-to-week I should say rather than day-to-day. We'll get him several days."
