Busy Day for Bucs



Wednesday was a busy day for the Bucs, and not all the news was good.

Starting right guard Davin Joseph injured his left knee in Wednesday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's season opener against the Ravens. And that news was compounded by word that left guard Dan Buenning continues to be affected by a sore ankle suffered against Houston in the preseason finale. He, too, is listed as questionable. The Bucs would turn to Sean Mahan (right) and Jeb Terry (left) if either starter is sidelined against Baltimore.

Elsewhere, starting middle linebacker Shelton Quarles is listed as questionable with a groin injury that has been affecting him for some time. Quarles was unable to practice and isn't certain whether he will practice on Thursday. Second-year player Barrett Ruud would start in Quarles' absence. Defensive tackle Anthony McFarland (undisclosed injury) and right tackle Kenyatta Walker (knee) appear ready to go, according to the respective players.

In other news, center John Wade said he was informed he has won the position battle between him and Mahan. The competition between the two lasted all preseason, going down to the final preseason game.
