Talib, Hayes added to lengthy Bucs injury report
Bucs coach Raheem Morris said that CB Aqib Talib (calf) and LB Geno Hayes (knee) were among those players who did not participate in Wednesday's practice.
Morris said Hayes' knee injury is just some swelling.
But what could be of bigger concern is three of the five usual starting offensive linemen didn't practice. C Jeff Faine is obviously expected, as he's out for several more weeks. But T Jeremy Trueblood, who left Sunday's game with a knee injury, and G Keydrick Vincent, who missed Sunday's game with back spasms, also didn't participate in practice.
Morris said they'll have to wait-and-see on if Trueblood can play, and it's possible that Vincent is the same way. On Sunday, Palm Harbor University product Ted Larsen made his NFL debut at left guard, and Jeremy Zuttah played center, with James Lee getting a lot of snaps. All three could potentially play big roles Sunday against the Cardinals.
