Grimes (groin) is questionable for Monday's game against the Steelers, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. The veteran cornerback was a full participant in practice all week but still carries the questionable designation with him heading into Monday's game. If he does play, it will be his first time seeing the field this season, which may result in limited reps for the cornerback.
Grimes (groin) expects to play Monday night against the Steelers after returning to full practice Thursday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Grimes has not seen the field this season while nursing a groin injury. The Buccaneers' defense will get a boost with its top cornerback expected to return to the field in Week 3.
Grimes (groin) will not play against the Eagles on Sunday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports. The Buccaneers will once again line up without their top cornerback. Expect Ryan Smith, Carlton Davis and M.J. Stewart to once again serve as a rotational group in Grimes' absence.
Grimes picked up a groin injury during the week and is now listed as doubtful for Sunday's game in New Orleans, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. Already shaky in the defensive backfield, Tampa Bay can't afford to lose its top cornerback for a matchup with Drew Brees and Michael Thomas in the Superdome. It appears that is what's going to happen, leaving some combination of Ryan Smith, Carlton Davis and M.J. Stewart to fill in at cornerback alongside Vernon Hargreaves. The Saints shouldn't have much trouble chucking the ball around.
Grimes played tight coverage and swatted away numerous passes during one-on-one drills in Tuesday's practice, his second consecutive impressive session, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports. The veteran corner has had plenty of question marks surrounding him in training camp, missing a full week of practice and last Thursday's preseason opener against the Dolphins with an undisclosed injury. However, Grimes appears to be back at full health and in midseason form if his performance over the last two sessions is any indication. Forthcoming joint practices and a preseason game against the Titans on Saturday night will give Grimes a chance to face a different set of receivers in anticipation of another starting assignment in 2018.
