Position Listing
 
Da'Quan Bowers
News
The Buccaneers have listed WR Robert Herron, RB Mike James, CB Crezdon Butler, CB C.J. Wilson, LB Lavonte David, T Kevin Pamphile and DE Da'Quan Bowers as inactive against the Bears Week 12.

David was the only player listed on the injury report. He came into the game questionable due to a hamstring injury. David was able to get through limited practice Wednesday, but did not participate in practice Thursday and Friday. 

Injury
Knee - Limited practice. Questionable for Week 13 vs. Cincinnati
Andrew DePaola
News
The Buccaneers re-signed long-snapper Andrew DePaola and waived cornerback Anthony Gaitor, the team announced.
Jeremy Grable
News
The Buccaneers announced Tuesday they signed defensive end Ryne Giddins and defensive end James Ruffin. The team also announced it waived (injured) linebacker Jeremy Grable and safety Mycal Swaim.
Lavonte David
News
Buccaneers linebacker Lavonte David, who shares the league lead in tackles with 116, won't be able to add to his total on Sunday. According to the Tampa Bay Times, David will sit out his first game of the season in Week 12 against the Bears with a hamstring injury. David was unable to practice Thursday and Friday because of the issue.

His next chance to return will come Week 13 against Cincinnati.

Injury
Hamstring - Did not practice. Questionable for Week 13 vs. Cincinnati
Dashon Goldson
News
Buccaneers free safety Dashon Goldson may be falling out of favor with the team's coaching staff and could be a candidate for release during the offseason, NFL.com reports.

Goldson was removed on some passing downs for Bradley McDougald in Week 10, and defensive coordinator said wanted to "take a look" at McDougald and that he is "not a one-dimensional guy." With Goldson set to earn a $7.5-million base salary in 2015, the team would likely choose to let him go and save $5 million in cap space if the safety is seen as nothing more than a rotational player.

Johnthan Banks
News
Linebacker Brandon McGee (knee) is the lone Buccaneers player ruled out for the Sunday game against Minnesota. Cornerback Johnthan Banks (neck) is the only teammate on the Friday injury report not deemed questionable.

That group includes linebacker Jonathan Casillas (hamstring), tackle Anthony Collins (knee), safety Dashon Goldson (ankle), wide receiver Vincent Jackson (rib), quarterback Josh McCown (thumb) and defensive back Keith Tandy (hamstring.

Goldson and McCown both went from limited in practice to full participation Friday. Jackson has been limited throughout.

Orie Lemon
News
The Chiefs signed linebacker Orie Lemon to the practice squad Wednesday. Lemon takes the spot of Nico Johnson, who was signed to the Bengals' active roster Wednesday.

Louis Murphy
News
With the Buccaneers playing from behind and forced to throw the ball 48 times, wide receiver Louis Murphy put together the best game of his season in Week 12.

Murphy was third on the team in targeted with eight, and he hauled in six of those passes for 113 yards, his first 100-yard game of the season. In fact, the performance bested his yardage total from the previous five games combined, as he had failed to record more than 20 yards in any of the last four.

Murphy has a couple of big games under his belt this season, but has mostly been a nonfactor behind Vincent Jackson and rookie Mike Evans. He would need to string together a few more games like this for Fantasy owners to consider picking him up for the stretch run. 

George Uko
News
The Buccaneers announced several roster moves on Monday, via the team's official website. 

The team signed fullback Lonnie Pryor and defensive end George Uko to the practice squad. They also released wide receiver Kevin Cone and running back Jeff Demps.

Leonard Johnson
News
Buccaneers cornerback Leonard Johnson highlighted the fine defensive effort Sunday in Detroit with a 48-yard pick-six in the second quarter, but that was far from the extent of his contribution.

Johnson tied for second on his team with seven tackles and added two passes defensed in the upset victory.

Mason Foster
News
The Buccaneers will have Evan Dietrich-Smith and Mason Foster Week 6 against the Ravens.

Dietrich-Smith came into the contest considered questionable due to an illness. Foster was listed as probable due to a shoulder injury. 

Patrick Omameh
News
Among the Buccaneers inactives for Week 16 against the Rams, three are sidelined as a result of injuries. Offensive lineman Carl Nicks (foot), defensive lineman Da'Quan Bowers (knee) and defensive back Mark Barron (hamstring) headline the team's inactive list.

Additionally, linebacker Danny Lansanah, defensive lineman Matthew Masifilo , running back Lonnie Pryor and offensive lineman Patrick Omameh are all out of uniform Sunday.

Injury
Pectoral - IR. Out for season
Josh McCown
News
Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown had a tough game Week 12 against the Bears.

McCown completed 25 of 48 passes for 341 yards and a touchdown. Turnovers were a big issue for him, though. McCown threw two interceptions, and fumbled twice. He lost one of those fumbles. McCown was under constant pressure during the contest, taking five sacks. He managed to find Mike Evans on a 19 yard touchdown pass in the second quarter, but did not find the end zone again versus his former team. McCown also had 12 rushing yards.

McCown will look for more Week 13 against the Bengals.

Akeem Spence
News
Buccaneers linebacker Lavonte David, who leads the team with 89 tackles and two forced fumbles, is active for the game against Atlanta after being listed as questionable with a knee injury. Also suiting up are linebacker Brandon Magee (knee), tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins (thumb) and defensive tackle Akeem Spence (hamstring).

Adrian Clayborn
News

Clayborn was trying to work through the injury in recent days, having practiced on a limited basis both Wednesday and Thursday. However, the injury proved to be too much for him to keep going, necessitating an IR trip for the second time in three seasons.

Injury
Elbow - IR. Out for season
Garrett Gilkey
News
Jacquies Smith
News
Lovie Smith has praised Buccaneers defensive end Jacquies Smith for his emergence as a productive player in recent weeks.

The undrafted free agent, who was cut by Buffalo after Week 1 and has served a stint in the Canadian Football League, has gone from practice squad member to key player in the rotation. He has three sacks in the last three games, including two Sunday against Washington. Smith claims the result should be increased playing time.

"We tell the players always, 'If you get in a few plays and you're productive with those, you'll get more,'" Smith told ESPN. "Kind of simple as that. He has continued to get more plays based on his play. He's come a long way from being cut by the Bills and coming down here and now really being a factor. So it's safe to say that, yes."

Larry English
News
The Buccaneers have made QB Josh McCown, CB Johnthan Banks, S Dashon Goldson, LB Jonathan Casillas, DE Larry English, OL Kevin Pamphile and OL Kadeem Edwards inactive Week 6 against the Ravens. 

Goldson and Casillas were the only players ruled out prior to Sunday. McCown entered the game considered doubtful. Banks was listed as questionable. 

Doug Martin
News
Despite being nowhere near as productive as his rookie season, Buccaneers running back Doug Martin said he’s still the same player as he was when he entered the league, according to ESPN.

Martin rushed for 1,454 yards in 2012 averaging 4.6 yards per carry. The following two seasons after his rookie year have seen Martin deal with numerous injuries and his average per carry dip to 3.6 in 2013 and 2.8 this season.

While Martin admitted injuries can slow players down, he still believes his ability has not wavered.

"I do believe so," Martin said, per ESPN.com. "I'm very confident in my ability."

Kevin Pamphile
News
The Buccaneers have listed WR Robert Herron, RB Mike James, CB Crezdon Butler, CB C.J. Wilson, LB Lavonte David, T Kevin Pamphile and DE Da'Quan Bowers as inactive against the Bears Week 12.

David was the only player listed on the injury report. He came into the game questionable due to a hamstring injury. David was able to get through limited practice Wednesday, but did not participate in practice Thursday and Friday.

Bobby Rainey
News
The Buccaneers have struggled to run the football in 2014, and coach Lovie Smith knows it too well. The Bucs have rushed for fewer than 100 yards in eight of their last nine games and rank second to last in the NFL in rushing yards per game (84.0 ypg).

"A defense can just tee off on you if you can’t run the football," Smith said, per The Tampa Tribune. "When you can’t run the ball consistently in this league, it hurts."

The Bucs did rush for more than 100 yards in each of their first two games. Since then, they are averaging 73.8 rushing yards per game and 3.4 yards per carry.

The Bucs are averaging 21.7 run plays per game, which is the second-fewest in the NFL. Only one time this year has a Bucs' running back carried the ball more than 20 times. Offensive coordinator Marcus Arroyo admits it might be time to change that, and get running backs Doug Martin, Charles Sims and Bobby Rainey more carries.

"We haven’t tried that yet," Arroyo said when asked if the solution might be as simple as calling 30 or more rushing plays per game. "Maybe that is the answer."
