The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have already dealt with more injuries than usual during the preseason, which is what made it great to see Chris Godwin listed as a full participant in Wednesday’s practice.
Well, the Buccaneers received more good news on Thursday in the form of All-Pro right tackle Tristan Wirfs’ health. Wirfs was upgraded to a full participant in Thursday’s practice after being designated as limited on Wednesday. He’s been dealing with an oblique strain that has either kept him out of practice or has limited him for the last few weeks.
Wirfs’ return to full practice status is huge for the Buccaneers. He’s easily their best offensive lineman and will be needed in 2022.
Speaking of Godwin, he didn’t practice on Thursday, while safety Mike Edwards was limited with an illness. Receiver Julio Jones practiced after an off day on Wednesday, as well.

Buccaneers fans shouldn’t get excited about quarterback Dak Prescott’s ankle. It’s considered general soreness caused by his cleats and he will be ready to go on Sunday night.
