Bucs DE Gaines Adams misses practice with an ankle injury



The injury bug has bitten defensive end Gaines Adams again.

Adams sprained his ankle in practice Wednesday and was unable to participate in Thursday's workout.

Center Jeff Faine (triceps), running back Earnest Graham (hamstring), defensive end Kyle Moore (knee) also did not practice. Receivers Antonio Bryant (knee) and Brian Clark were limited in practice Thursday. Receiver Michael Clayton (ribs), quarterback Byron Leftwich (hip), running back Derrick Ward (knee) and linebacker Geno Hayes had full participation.

Adams missed several days of practice last week with a groin injury but responded with his best game of the season at Washington with a sack, fumble recovery and pass defensed.

"Actually, it happened during practice yesterday, just a little tweak in his ankle,'' said Bucs coach Raheem Morris. So we'll have to see where he is tomorrow. He didn't practice today.''
