Buccaneers starting linebacker Mason Foster dislocated his shoulder in the Week 2 loss to the Rams and is not expected to play Thursday at Atlanta, reports ESPN.com. Dane Fletcher likely would start in his place.
Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith said Monday only three players would have not been able to practice and the list didn't include running back Doug Martin, who missed Week 2 due to a knee injury. Martin's availability to practice Monday indicates he could be an option for Thursday's game at Atlanta, per the Tampa Bay Times.
Despite breaking his hand in the Week 2 loss to the Rams, Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy still has a chance to play Thursday at Atlanta, reports the Tampa Tribune. "We're going to let that play out," coach Lovie Smith told the paper.
