Ruud, Winslow return, Bryant gets day off and T-Jax is ill
The Bucs held a short practice this morning before breaking for Thanksgiving and appear to be close to full strength heading into Sunday's game at Atlanta.
Linebacker Barrett (Ruud) and tight end Kellen Winslow (knee) had full participation in practice Thusrday. Cornerback Torrie Cox (knee) was limited and safety Tanard Jackson missed Thursday's workout with an illness.
With an extra practice this week, the Bucs also decided to give oft-injured receiver Antonio Bryant (knee) the day off.
"We've got four practices this week. No need to be bad with that, keep him at his normal pace the way it's been going,'' Bucs coach Raheem Morris said. "It's been getting better, so let's keep it like that.''
