Bucs getting healthy: McCoy, Stocker, Stroughter practice



Maybe it's the refreshing chill in the England air, but the Bucs are getting healthier and could have several players back for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears.

Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, who did not play last week because of a high ankle sprain, was heavily taped but showing good movement in practice today. Tight end Luke Stocker, who missed last week's game against the Saints with a knee sprain, also worked out Wednesday. Finally, receiver Sammie Stroughter, who has not played since suffering a foot fracture in the season opener, returned to practice Wednesday.

On the down side, C Jeff Faine has a biceps pull and did not practice along with running back LeGarrette Blount, who is expected to be questionable with a knee sprain. Defensive end Michael Bennett has a groin strain and also was not working Wednesday.
