With the Tampa Bay Buccaneers set to face off against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, the last thing the Buccaneers needed was a disappointing development on the injury report.

Tampa Bay will need almost all of their available personnel to walk out of Week Three with a win, even with Green Bay’s questionable receiving situation still somewhat hampering their offense.

Unfortunately for Tampa Bay, they didn’t get the positive news they were searching for on the injury front. As multiple key contributors were either ruled out or questionable for Sunday’s game, including Chris Godwin and and Julio Jones.

Godwin’s situation is more expected, as the initial recovery check in period was set as more of a week-to-week basis.

Hicks tore the plantar fascia in his foot recently, which is going to sideline him for a while according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Jones and Russell Gage are both dealing with leg injuries, with Jones’ being the more questionable of the two.

Gage not practicing today does raise some eyebrows regarding his status. But it could’ve been a simple rest day for Gage as he practiced the previous two days before.

Breshad Perriman practiced all week on a limited basis, so he has a better chance to suit up than not. Leonard Fournette is dealing with a hamstring injury, but he practiced all week so he should play. But hamstring injuries are tricky, so that’ll be one to monitor.

Lastly, Donovan Smith’s elbow injury has been reported as more of an instance of pain tolerance. But his doubtful tag likely means he’s out for Sunday’s game. The same can be said for tight end Cade Otton.

This injury situation isn’t ideal for the Buccaneers, but if anybody can work through it, it’s them.
