    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    09/25/16DERobert Ayers Jr.ANKLEOUTAyers (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 3, Roy Cummings of WFLA News Channel 8 reports.

    Ayers exited Week 2's action with an ankle injury and did not return. It's unclear how long he may be out, but Noah Spence projects to slide in as the starting defensive end in his place.

    (Updated 09/23/2016)
    09/25/16LBLavonte DavidSHOULDERQUESTIONABLEDavid (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday against Los Angeles, Roy Cummings of WFLA Channel 8 reports.

    If the 'probable' designation still existed, David would almost certainly have it. He was a full practice participant this week and can still be safely deployed as a high-end IDP.

    (Updated 09/23/2016)
    09/25/16RBDoug MartinHAMSTRINGOUTMartin (hamstring) is expected to be out about three weeks, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

    Martin had a MRI on Tuesday and the results must not have been great. Charles Sims figures to become the Buccaneers' lead tailback as a result, with recent signing Jacquizz Rodgers in line for snaps behind him.

    (Updated 09/21/2016)
    09/25/16WRCecil Shorts IIIHAMSTRINGOUTShorts (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Los Angeles, Roy Cummings of WFLA Channel 8 reports.

    Even if he were healthy, which hasn't happened often the past few years, Shorts would likely just be the No. 4 or 5 wideout in Tampa Bay. His absence could leave a few more snaps for Russell Shepard and/or Freddie Martino.

    (Updated 09/23/2016)
    09/25/16TDonovan SmithHIPQUESTIONABLEThe Buccaneers held out wide receiver Mike Evans and left tackle Donovan Smith of practice on Monday, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
    09/25/16CBRyan SmithHANDQUESTIONABLESmith (hand) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, Roy Cummings of WFLA News Channel 8 reports.

    Smith could make his season debut Sunday after sitting out the Buccaneers' first two games due to the hand injury. If he's unable to play once again, Keith Tandy will be the primary backup at safety behind starters Bradley McDougald and Chris Conte.

    (Updated 09/24/2016)
    09/25/16TELuke StockerANKLEOUTStocker (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Los Angeles, Roy Cummings of WFLA Channel 8 reports.

    Even with Austin Seferian-Jenkins no longer on the team, Stocker is unlikely to draw more than a target or two per game, as his role will still largely revolve around blocking. Cameron Brate and Brandon Myers are the real candidates to benefit from ASJ's release.

    (Updated 09/23/2016)
    09/09/16WRKenny BellConcussionQUESTIONABLEBell (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.

    09/25/16DTSharrif FloydKNEEOUTFloyd (knee) is expected to miss about six weeks after injuring his miniscus, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    Floyd had surgery to trim his miniscus this week. Look for Shamar Stephen and Tom Johnson to see some extra time for the next month or so as Floyd recovers.

    09/25/16TEMyCole PruittKNEEQUESTIONABLEPruitt (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt with the Panthers, Ben Goessling of ESPN reports.

    Pruitt's knee has kept him limited throughout this week's practice. There is some speculation that he could play, but the decision will likely be made hours leading up to kickoff.

    (Updated 09/23/2016)
    09/25/16CBXavier RhodesKNEEQUESTIONABLERhodes (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt with Carolina, Ben Goessling of ESPN reports.

    With Trae Waynes' sloppy play as of late, the Vikings are anxiously awaiting Rhodes' return to action. The hope is that he'll be available for the big game, but if not, Minnesota is prepared for Waynes and the ageless-wonder Terrence Newman to anchor the secondary Sunday.

    (Updated 09/23/2016)
    09/07/16DBMichael GriffinBackQUESTIONABLEGriffin (back) reached an injury settlement with the Vikings on Wednesday, Anthony DiMoro of the Huffington Post reports.

    The agreement removes Griffin from the Vikings' injured reserve list. When healthy, he'll be free to sign with another organization.

    (Updated 09/07/2016)
    09/02/16DLIsame FacianeKneeQUESTIONABLEThe Vikings signed nine players to their practice squad: running back Joe Banyard, wideouts Kain Colter and Donte Foster, defensive tackle Isame Faciane, tight end Chase Ford, cornerback Kendall James, center Zac Kerin, offensive tackle Mike Remmers and defensive end Justin Trattou.
    08/24/16DBTre RobersonHandQUESTIONABLERoberson was released by the Vikings.

    He suffered a broken bone in his right hand during training camp which hurt his chances to make the final roster.

    (Updated 09/03/2016)
    07/29/16QBTaylor HeinickeAnkleOUTHenicke will start the regular season on the non-football injury list, Andrew Krammer of the Star Tribune reports.

    Heinicke was originally given a timetable of three months for a return when he had surgery to repair a torn tendon in his ankle. Placement on the NFI list to start the season means that he'll miss at least the first six games, which he likely would've anyway.
