Four Bucs still not practicing, likely out for Falcons game

30

October

Four Bucs players -- WR Vincent Jackson, DTs Clinton McDonald and Tony McDaniel and S Major Wright -- remained sidelined with injuries at Friday's practice, which means they'll likely be inactive for Sunday's game in Atlanta.

Tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who hasn't played since injuring his shoulder in Week 2, continues to practice, though it's likely he'll be listed as having "limited participation," leaving it a game-day decision on whether he'll dress for Sunday's game or miss a fifth straight game.

Left guard Logan Mankins was back practicing after getting a maintenance day off Thursday, and backup tackle Reid Fragel was practicing for the first time since he suffered a concussion in practice last week.

Going without McDonald and McDaniel turns defensive tackle from one of the Bucs' deepest positions to one perilously thin -- Akeem Spence, who returned from back surgery and made his season debut last week, said Thursday he'll be moving into a starting role, which would leave Henry Melton as the only true backup to him and Gerald McCoy.
