LB Koutouvides remains in Tampa
Bucs linebacker Niko Koutouvides did not accompany the team to Charlotte, N.C., for Sunday's game against the Panthers.
Koutouvides has an ankle injury and is unable to play. He is an important member of the Bucs' special teams, particularly on kick coverage.
The good news is that running back Kareem Huggins (groin) and tight end Kellen Winslow (knee) both made the trip, although each player was listed as questionable.
