Bucs rule same four players out for Sunday; Ware out for Broncos



The Bucs have ruled the same four injured players out for Sunday's game against the Broncos, with RB Doug Martin (hamstring), DE Robert Ayers (ankle), TE Luke Stocker (ankle) and WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) missing a second straight game with injuries suffered in Week 2 at Arizona.

Bucs C Joe Hawley, who missed Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury suffered in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Rams, practiced for the second straight day and is listed as "questionable," though he's expected to play and start for the Bucs.

Denver will be without one of its best pass-rushers in OLB DeMarcus Ware, who is out with a forearm injury, along with TE Virgil Green (calf) and T Donald Stephenson (calf). Broncos safeties Justin Simmons (hand) and Shiloh Keo (knee) are both questionable.
