Buccaneers' Clinton McDonald: Limited in practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDonald (hamstring) was limited in practice on Thursday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

McDonald sat out of practice earlier this week but returned in a limited fashion on Thursday, leaving him questionable for Sunday's tilt with the 49ers. Check back for more information regarding the defensive ends game status as the weekend approaches, with Akeem Spence serving as a replacement starter if McDonald isn't cleared.

Buccaneers' Cecil Shorts: Full participant in practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Shorts (hamstring) was a full participant in practice on Thursday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Shorts went from limited participation to full participation this week in practice, and now appears in line to play Sunday against the 49ers. With Vincent Jackson (knee) landing on injured reserve, Shorts could play a bigger role in Tampa Bay's offense.

Buccaneers' Robert Ayers: Doesn't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayers (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, the team's official site reports.

Ayers has yet to practice since getting in a limited session back on Oct. 6 and hasn't played since exiting the Week 2 tilt versus the Cardinals with his injury. With fellow lineman Clinton McDonald (hamstring) not practicing and Gerald McCoy (calf) still limited, the Bucs could find themselves significantly short-handed again in Week 7 versus the Niners. Ayers' progress will be checked again following Thursday's session.

Buccaneers' Gerald McCoy: Gets in limited practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCoy (calf) was able to practice on a limited basis Wednesday, the team's official site reports.

McCoy's participation represented an improvement from Monday's DNP status, providing a glimmer of optimism for his chances of suiting up against the Niners in Week 7. With fellow linemates Robert Ayers (ankle) and Clinton McDonald (hamstring) still sidelined for what was the second practice of the week, McCoy's status is of particular importance. The next update on his condition should come following Thursday's session.

Buccaneers' Cecil Shorts: Could be in line for expanded role with V-Jax injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shorts (hamstring) could see an increased role in the wake of Vincent Jackson's knee injury, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports. "I think the biggest thing for me is making sure I know my assignment and do my job. That time I had when I was out [due to injury] was a good time to catch up and study a lot of stuff. So I'm kind of caught up from a gameplan standpoint, not necessarily the whole offense but the gameplan and what's going on. So I feel pretty confident out there."

The veteran wideout has been sidelined since Week 2 with his hamstring injury, which ironically, occurred on his first catch in a Bucs uniform. The 28-year-old has played both inside and outside in his five NFL seasons, so he presents as the most adequate candidate overall in terms of experience and skill set to take on a lot of Jackson's routes. With the time off apparently having given Shorts an opportunity further acclimate to his responsibilities within the team's offensive system, he could be in line for a decent amount of targets against a questionable 49ers secondary in Week 7 if he's able to go.
