Buccaneers' Demar Dotson: Logs limited practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dotson (hamstring) practiced on a limited basis Friday but won't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against Seattle, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Dotson missed practice Wednesday but returned to limited status Thursday and Friday. It sounds like he's good to go for Sunday, however, and he should get the start at right tackle for the Buccaneers.

Buccaneers' Demar Dotson: Returns to practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dotson (hamstring) returned to practice Thursday in limited fashion.

The veteran offensive lineman sat out Wednesday's session, so his return Thursday has him trending in the right direction for the Week 9 tilt against Seattle. Dotson notably fought through the injury to suit up and play the full game in Week 8 against the Titans.

Buccaneers' Demar Dotson: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dotson (hamstring) did not participate in Wednesday's practice, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports.

Dotson played through his hamstring and calf issues in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Titans, logging 81 offensive snaps. However, the veteran lineman may have come out of the contest a bit worse for wear. Dotson's progress will be one to monitor throughout the rest of the week with an aggressive Seahawks defensive line on tap.

Buccaneers' Demar Dotson: Back in action Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dotson (hamstring/calf) is active for Sunday's Week 8 tilt against the Titans, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

The veteran offensive lineman returns to action after missing only one game and then getting healthy over the bye week. He'll thus be available as the right-side bookend of the offensive line against a capable Titans pass rush.

Buccaneers' Demar Dotson: Won't play versus Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dotson (hamstring/calf) is not travelling with the Buccaneers to London on Thursday, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Dotson won't play Week 6 due to hamstring and calf injuries sustained during last Sunday's loss to the Saints. With Alex Cappa (forearm) also ruled out, the right side of Tampa Bay's offensive line will be down two starters versus Carolina.

Buccaneers' Demar Dotson: Expected to miss Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dotson (hamstring/calf) is on track to sit out Week 6 versus the Panthers, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Dotson picked up calf and hamstring injuries during last Sunday's loss to the Saints. With Alex Cappa on track to miss multiple weeks due to a broken arm, the Buccaneers will be down two starters along the right side of the offensive line as long as Dotson is sidelined.

Buccaneers' Demar Dotson: Done for day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dotson (hamstring) has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game versus the Saints, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Buccaneers' Demar Dotson: Suiting up Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dotson (calf) is active for Sunday's Week 4 tilt against the Rams, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Dotson was a late-week addition to the injury report, but he'll be in uniform and in his usual starting role Sunday. The veteran tackle's presence is particularly welcome against an aggressive Rams defensive front that prides itself on getting to the quarterback.

Buccaneers' Demar Dotson: Lands on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Buccaneers have listed Dotson as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams due to a calf injury.

Dotson was a full participant at practice throughout the week until logging a limited workload Friday. Thus, it appears he suffered the injury at practice. If he is ultimately unable to suit up, look for Josh Wells to replace him at right tackle.

Buccaneers' Demar Dotson: Draws preseason start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dotson started and played 10 snaps in Friday's preseason game against the Dolphins.

All indications are Dotson is over the undisclosed injury that caused him to miss practice at the start of camp. The 33-year-old heads into the regular season as the Bucs' starting right tackle.

Buccaneers' Demar Dotson: Not practicing Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dotson did not participate at practice Monday for undisclosed reasons, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Dotson was present but wasn't wearing his pads for an unknown reason. More information should be available on the situation if the 33-year-old continues to be held out.

Buccaneers' Demar Dotson: Not going anywhere
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Buccaneers elected to exercise the 2019 option on Dotson's contract, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

With the incumbent starting right tackle, Dotson, back in the fold for 2019 just days after the Bucs re-signed left tackle Donovan Smith, Tampa Bay has seemingly solidified the bookends of its starting offensive line for the upcoming year.

Buccaneers' Demar Dotson: Ready to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dotson (knee) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Dotson was a limited participant in practice Wednesday and Thursday due to an undisclosed knee injury, but now appears to have returned to full health. The veteran tackle is on track to draw his usual start at right tackle against the Falcons.

Buccaneers' Demar Dotson: Doubtful for Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dotson (knee/hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's contest against the Panthers, Greg Auman of The Athletic of The Athletic reports.

Dotson exited Sunday's game against the Redskins with multiple leg injuries, including issues with his knee and hamstring. The 33-year-old logged a limited practice Wednesday, but he was unable to practice the rest of the week. The doubtful tag leaves the option for Dotson to play, but it seems unlikely that he will. In that event, Leonard Wester (knee) would see an increase in work.

Buccaneers' Demar Dotson: Won't return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dotson (hamstring/knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's tilt against the 49ers, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Dotson will not be able to return as he nurses multiple leg injuries, so Leonard Wester will fill in at right tackle throughout the second half.

Buccaneers' Demar Dotson: Nursing multiple injuries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dotson is considered questionable to return to Sunday's game against the 49ers with knee and hamstring injuries, Scott Smith of Buccaneers.com reports.

The severity of Dotson's leg injuries are unclear, but Leonard Wester may be asked to fill in at right tackle while the former is evaluated.

Buccaneers' Demar Dotson: Cleared to face Redskins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dotson (shoulder/knee) doesn't carry an injury designation ahead of Sunday's contest with the Redskins, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Dotson's practice status indicates that he was likely to play Sunday. The 33-year-old didn't practice Wednesday, logged a limited session Thursday and practiced in full Friday. Dotson's improvement was enough to keep him from having an injury designation.

Buccaneers' Demar Dotson: Up to limited participation Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dotson (shoulder/knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports.

Dotson's status represented an improvement over Wednesday's, when he'd been a non-participant to open the practice week ahead of the Week 10 tilt against the Redskins. The veteran's spotty practice schedule appears to be primarily maintenance-related, with Friday's final injury report likely to offer further clarity on his prospects for suiting up versus Washington.

Buccaneers' Demar Dotson: Dealing with multiple injuries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dotson (shoulder/knee) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports.

Dotson has been managing a knee issue throughout the season, but the shoulder injury doubles up his number of issues as the Bucs enter the second half of their season. The team will likely continue to be cautious with the veteran offensive lineman, and it's quite possible he doesn't log any practice participation until Friday's session.

Buccaneers' Demar Dotson: Not on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dotson (knee) is absent from Friday's injury report, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Dotson has played through lingering knee issues all season, and the veteran lineman's Week 7 status does not appear to have ever been in question. Expect Dotson to suit up against the Browns' potent defensive front Sunday.
