Martin (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.
Shorts (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.
Smith (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.
Stocker (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.
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.
Rhodes (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.
Henicke 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.
