The Buccaneers were but by the injury bug during Saturday's preseason game against the Dolphins. The team had several players leave with injuries.
Running back Mike James left the game with a right shoulder injury in the third quarter. He finished 18 yards on three carries and did not return.
Defensive end William Gholston also suffered a shoulder injury and did not return. Defensive back Rashaan Melvin suffered an ankle injury was ruled out for the remainder of the game. Linebacker Brandon Magee was carted off with a right ankle injury and safety Major Wright exited with a back injury.
Buccaneers defensive back Bradley McDougald suffered a knee injury during the first half of Saturday's preseason game against the Bills, and was unable to return to the game. The extent of the injury is not yet known at this point.
Buccaneers wide receiver Louis Murphywas knocked out of Thursday's preseason finale against Washington with a back injury, the team announced. He sustained the injury early in the third quarter and will likely be evaluated leading up to his team's season opener against the Panthers.
Jets cornerback Antonio Allen has recovered from his concussion and will start Week 1 against the Raiders, reports the Associated Press. Allen played safety last year, making 61 tackles and an interception, but the Jets moved him due to a lack of depth at corner.
Jets linebacker Nick Bellore was knocked out of Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles with a calf injury. He sustained the injury in the first half and was ruled out for the remainder of the contest.
The "feeling right now" is that Jets cornerback Dee Milliner (high ankle sprain) won't play Week 1 against the Raiders, reports the New York Daily News. New York would be forced to start Darrin Walls and Antonio Allen at corner, with Kyle Wilson manning the slot, the report said.
