Breaux (leg) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Liz Mathews of ESPN reports.
Breaux's limited participation is a great sign moving forward, as it shows at least a relative amount of comfort with his surgically-repaired left fibula. It is unclear whether he will return to game action in Week 9, but if he is forced to miss another game, expect to see more De'Vante Harris and Ken Crawley at cornerback for the Saints.
Anthony (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Kansas City.
A late-week addition to the injury report, Anthony likely get hurt at practice either Thursday or Friday. It's not much of a loss for the Saints, as last year's second-round selection has only played 55 defensive snaps all year.
Lasco (hamstring ) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Liz Mathews of ESPN reports.
Lasco was forced to miss Week 7's matchup with the Chiefs, so his participation in practice, albeit limited, is a good sign regarding his status for this Sunday. He has only played 16 offensive snaps this season, however, which keeps him off the radar as a fantasy producer.
The Saints released Brown (calf) with an injury settlement Thursday, removing him from injured reserve, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Brown joined the Saints in May, adding a veteran presence to a receiving corps lacking in experience. However, he failed his pre-training camp physical due to a strained calf, which will bring his brief tenure in New Orleans to a close. The severity of the injury will likely determine when he receives a chance with another organization.
Ayers (ankle) practiced in a limited capacity on Wednesday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Ayers participated for the first time since suffering the ankle injury Week 2, albeit in shorts as the Buccaneers limited his activity. If he's unable to return to game action Sunday against the Raiders, Noah Spence figures to once again get the start at defensive end.
Martin (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Already beset by one setback, Martin will be treated with kid gloves by the Buccaneers as he rehabilitates the balky hamstring that has sidelined him since Week 2, per Auman. As a result, the training room will be Martin's domain until he's cleared to return to the practice field. In the interim, the Bucs will entrust Jacquizz Rodgers with a particularly hefty workload, which has equated to 56 carries for 255 yards and six catches for 37 yards over the last two contests.
McDonald (hamstring) will not play against the 49ers on Sunday.
McDonald was able to return to practice after sitting out on Wednesday, but will be held out due to the lingering nature of hamstring injuries. However, he appears to have an optimistic chance of returning next week. Akeem Spence will get the start on Sunday as his replacement.
Bell (concussion) reached an injury settlement with the Buccaneers on Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Bell suffered a concussion in Week 4's preseason finale against the Redskins, leaving him on the sidelines for an extended amount of time. The team decided to part ways with wideout instead of holding him on IR for the year.
