Clayton: Hamstring injury 'just a tweak'



Receiver Michael Clayton, who left Wednesday's morning practice clutching his left hamstring, watched the afternoon workouts and said he won't miss more than a few days with the injury.

"I tweaked the hammy," Clayton said. "I couldn't do everything (Thursday), but we'll find out exactly what's going on with it. It's just a tweak. Should be a couple of days and I'll be fine."

Wednesday afternoon saw the return of receiver Antonio Bryant (knee) and tight end Kellen Winslow (ankle), who had been sidelined with their injuries. Bryant didn't wear a helmet but ran through individual drills with the receivers; Winslow seemed to be practicing as normal.

Kicker Matt Bryant also has a mild hamstring injury and is expected to be kicking again Thursday. The Bucs' only longterm injuries are linebacker Angelo Crowell, who has a hamstring injury and is "likely the middle of next week" according to coach Raheem Morris, and receiver Joel Filani is also likely back next week with an undisclosed injury.
