Final injury report



Here's a quick update on the week's final injury report per Jon Gruden.

Tight end Alex Smith and receiver Michael Clayton are listed as doubtful with ankle injuries, meaning they'll likely miss the game. Listed as questionable are defensive end Patrick Chukwurah (shoulder) and cornerback Brian Kelly (groin).

Gruden has been optimistic about Kelly the last couple days as he returned to practice on a limited basis, but don't expect Kelly to play this weekend. It's more likely you'll see him next week against Arizona if not in Atlanta after the bye week.

Smith is likely to miss his second consecutive game, and Gruden didn't seem to know when the Bucs could count on his return.
