Jermaine Phillips, Alex Smith practice a bit
It's hard to say whether either is close to returning to the lineup, but the Bucs' official injury report today lists S Jermaine Phillips and TE Alex Smith as having practiced on a limited basis.
Phillips broke his forearm at Dallas three weeks ago while Smith suffered a badly sprained ankle at Kansas City on Nov. 2. For Phillips, it's the first time he's seen the field since his injury. Smith said it was premature to say whether he might be able to play this week or not.
