Bucs Hurting



The Bucs put out their first injury report of the week Wednesday, and it wasn't pretty.

A new injury was added to the long list of previous ones when starting left tackle Anthony Davis injured his ankle in practice and was unable to finish. He is now listed as questionable, meaning he has a 50 percent chance of playing Sunday against the Redskins. Backup Cornell Green, acquired late in the preseason, took Davis' place Wednesday.

There has been little progress with the three defensive starters who missed Monday's game at Carolina -- linebacker Shelton Quarles (knee/ankle), defensive end Simeon Rice (shoulder) and defensive tackle Ellis Wyms (ankle). All remain questionable.

Also injured are cornerback Juran Bolden (hip), running back Michael Pittman (shoulder) and tackle Donald Penn (foot). Each is questionable.

Quarterback Bruce Gradkowski, who injured his thumb against Carolina, was not on the injury report and practiced.
