Allen injures thumb



Willallen LAKE BUENA VISTA - Starting safety Will Allen, left, has a thumb injury that forced him to miss the morning workout Thursday. He is being fitted with a splint and expected to return Friday.

Injuries are nothing new to Allen, who missed three games last season due to torn ligaments in his thumb. He is expected to replace Dexter Jackson at free safety.

The Bucs rested veterans Kenyatta Walker, Brian Kelly and Greg Spires.

Running back Derek Watson complained of soreness in his neck following a collision with linebacker Jamie Winborn Thursday morning. Tests on Watson's neck checked out okay but he is uncertain when he will return to practice.
