    Buccaneers' William Gholston: Limited in practice Thursday

    Gholston (hip) was limited in practice for the second consecutive day on Thursday, Joe Kania of the Buccaneers official site reports. Gholston appears destined for a Week 17 questionable designation, and the Bucs would miss his run-stopping presence against Cam Newton and the Panthers should he be sidelined Sunday. Friday should bring further clarity on Gholston's status heading into the finale.

    Buccaneers' William Gholston: Limited in practice Wednesday

    Gholston (hip) was limited in practice Wednesday,Joe Kania of the Buccaneers official site reports. Gholston played on 41 defensive snaps versus the Bears in Week 16 and tallied five tackles, bringing his career-high total of stops to 64 in 2015.

Gholston's status should be updated further after Thursday's practice session.

    Buccaneers' William Gholston: Tallies career-high 11 tackles in Week 15 loss

    Gholston managed 11 tackles (seven solo), including two for loss, in Thursday's 31-23 loss to the Rams. Gholston has been progressively coming on over the second half of the season. The third-year pro has now tallied 37 tackles, three sacks, a forced fumble and a pass defensed over the last seven games alone, and the 11 tackles he managed Thursday was easily a career-high figure. He played an integral role in the Bucs suffocating Todd Gurley's running lanes to the tune of an average of 2.3 yards per rush on 21 carries, and seems to be fulfilling the potential that led his fourth-round selection in the 2013 draft. Gholston and his defensive line mates have another tough challenge ahead in Week 16, as they face the Bears' two-headed running attack of Jeremy Langford and Matt Forte.

    Buccaneers' William Gholston: Tallies two sacks in Week 13 victory

    Gholston managed three tackles (two solo), including two sacks, in Sunday's 23-19 victory over the Falcons. Gholston has been productive all season in the Bucs' defensive line rotation, and particularly stepped up in the absence of Gerald McCoy (hand, shoulder) in Week 13. The third-year pro had two of the Bucs' three takedowns of Falcons' quarterback Matt Ryan, collecting multiple sacks in a game for the first time in his three-year career. Gholston has posted career-highs in total tackles, solo tackles and sacks in 2015, and is fulfilling some of the potential that led the Greg Schiano regime to make him a fourth-round pick in the 2013 draft.

Gholston was able to practice all week, including participating fully in Friday's practice, but his status still remains a question mark heading into Sunday's game against the Giants.

    Buccaneers' William Gholston: Turns in limited practice Thursday

    Gholston (knee) turned in a limited practice Thursday, Joe Kania of the Buccaneers official site reports. Gholston is part of an ailing Bucs defensive front that will likely need all the pressure they can muster against Eli Manning and company in Week 9. He joins fellow line mates Gerald McCoy (shoulder), Jacquies Smith (ankle), and Tony McDaniel (groin) as limited participants in practice. Gholston would likely be replaced by George Johnson if he unable to go Sunday.

    Buccaneers DE Will Gholston won't rest on potential

    Buccaneers defensive end William Gholston is sick of listening to folks talk about what he can be as an NFL player. He wants this year to motivate them to praise him for what he's proving. The fourth-round pick in 2013 has 72 tackles and four sacks over his first two seasons. And that's not good enough in his mind. "I'm tired of hearing 'potential' - I want to live up to that potential and establish myself," he told MLive.com. "I'm trying to explode on the scene and show my ability. ... I don't want to be the guy who made it to the NFL on potential. I want to be the guy who is in the NFL playing and doing the things people expect me to do and and things I expect me to do. I think I can do that this year." What will help is a familiarity with the defense, which is the same this season after changes the last two years. "The mentality is to trample the run on the way to the quarterback," he explained. "The physical transition to the NFL wasn't as hard for me, coming from Michigan State, but there's a mental aspect for every rookie, a few days where you have to get an understanding with how fast it goes with the adjustments, knowing what the snap counts will be like."
