Kelly out vs Saints



   The Bucs will be without cornerback Brian Kelly Sunday against the Saints.

   Kelly did not practice Friday and was downgraded to doubtful with a groin strain. Phillip Buchanon is expected to start in Kelly's place.

   Cadillac Williams was limited in practice again Friday with bruised ribs and his status will be a game-time decision.

   ""I'll go out and try it on Sunday, fly around and bump around,'' Williams said. ""It feels real good.

   Williams said he won't wear a flak jacket but will have some extra padding to protect his ribs.

   ""I'm going to have a little padding,'' Williams said. ""But nothing that's going to be abnormal to hinder my ball carrying.''

   Meanwhile, defensive tackle Chris Hovan was limited in practice Friday but said he expects to play against the Saints.
