Meredith, Bowers did not practice Wednesday
The Bucs practiced Wednesday without two of their starters.
Right guard Jamon Meredith did not participate due to a lingering ankle injury he's dealt with for several weeks. Defensive end Da'Quan Bowers, who has a hamstring issue, missed practice due to a non-injury related reason. We're hearing it's not a big deal, and Bowers could be back Thursday.
In some encouraging injury news, DT Roy Miller - who missed last week's game due to a concussion - was back at full participation in practice, and it appears he'll be ready to return Sunday against the Saints. CB LeQuan Lewis, who missed Sunday's game due to a knee injury, was also at full participation.
