Whitehead (hamstring) practiced in full Wednesday. Whitehead didn't practice at all before he was ruled out for last Thursday's season opener against the Cowboys. Head coach Bruce Arians told Greg Auman of The Athletic earlier Wednesday that Whitehead "went full speed" at practice, and indeed that has come to pass. The Buccaneers thus will have their starting safety tandem of Whitehead and Antoine Winfield available Sunday versus the Falcons.
Coach Bruce Arians said Whitehead (hamstring) is officially out for Thursday night, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. After clearing COVID-19 protocols late in training camp, Whitehead suffered a minor hamstring injury that is going to keep him out of Week 1. The 25-year-old hasn't practiced yet this week and will look to rehab during the 10-day break before the Bucs' Week 2 contest against the Falcons. Mike Edwards will start in his place.
Whitehead (hamstring) was a non-participant at Monday's practice. Whitehead continues to battle a hamstring injury, and coach Bruce Arians said over the weekend the safety is considered day-to-day. The 24-year-old likely will need to practice in some capacity Tuesday or Wednesday to have a chance of suiting up for Thursday's season opener versus the Cowboys.
Whitehead (hamstring) didn't practice Sunday, Carmen Vitali of the Buccaneers' official site reports. Coach Bruce Arians noted Sunday that the starting safety is day-to-day as Thursday's season opener against the Cowboys approaches. Whitehead recorded 74 tackles, two sacks and two picks in 16 games with the Bucs in 2020.
Whitehead was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports. Whitehead spent just one week in the COVID-19 protocols before clearing them. The starting free safety will rejoin his teammates at practice moving forward.
