No Faine again at Bucs practice
Bucs center Jeff Faine wasn't participating in practice Thursday at Tropicana Field, marking the second straight day he's been out with an unspecified lower leg injury.
Coach Raheem Morris had appeared optimistic Wednesday that Faine would be able to play against the Steelers, saying he was just "day-to-day." But if Faine can't go, it'd be a big blow, considering the strength of the Steelers defensive front. Jeremy Zuttah could start for Faine if he's unable to play.
RB Cadillac Williams (hamstring) was participating in the first 30 minutes of practice, which is the only portion available to the media. TE Kellen Winslow was out there too, but it's unknown what level of participation he'd be at during the full workout.
There is expected to be more updates this afternoon when Morris addresses the media.
