Bucs don't rule out Revis for Sunday

TAMPA — Bucs CB Darrelle Revis did not practice Wednesday, but coach Greg Schiano said it's possible he can play Sunday against the Panthers.

"Revis will be day to day," Schiano said. "That should tell you … it's not real bad."

Revis tweaked the injury late in the second quarter Sunday. Schiano said the team is working on game plans for with and without him.

"There are certain matchups we'll do with him," Schiano said. "You're going to have to have plenty of contingencies because it could happen the first play as well."

LB Mason Foster returned to practice after missing Sunday's game with a concussion. Adam Hayward, who stepped in for Foster, did not practice due to a foot injury.

NFL HONORS: QB Mike Glennon was named the NFL's rookie of the month for November and LB Lavonte David the NFL's defensive player of the week.

"I was excited, obviously," Glennon said. "But the truth is that whole month, our run game's been going. Our offensive line's been playing really well, and our receivers have done really well. So it's great to get the award, but it really was kind of the whole offense (that) helped contribute to that."

In four games, Glennon threw for 785 yards, seven touchdowns and one interception with a 70.5 completion percentage. Glennon leads rookies with 13 touchdown passes, which also are a Bucs rookie record.

Sunday, David had a team-high 12 tackles, his second interception of the season and a forced fumble. He's the only NFL player with at least 90 tackles, five sacks and an interception.

WELCOME BACK: S Dashon Goldson was back at practice after serving a one-game suspension for a helmet-to-helmet hit against Atlanta. He said the time away was more difficult than anticipated because league policy bans a suspended player from all team activities.

"I didn't know the extent of being suspended," he said. "You couldn't be around the building; couldn't have any contact with coaches. I couldn't even be in the training room to get my body right."

Goldson spent time with his family and didn't watch Sunday's game live because he was flying to Florida from California. He said he found out the Bucs won via Twitter when his plane landed in Tampa.

"I think when you have to sit out a week and you lose a paycheck, those are serious things, right?" Schiano said of Goldson. "It affects your team. It affects yourself. He understands that there's a zero margin for error here, so I think he will continue to adjust his game because he loves to play and wants to help our team."

New Buc: With Tom Crabtree going on injured reserve with a torn biceps, the Bucs signed third-year TE Kyle Adams. The Purdue graduate caught four passes for 40 yards with the Bears last season. Adams was with the Bears in preseason before getting cut twice in September. He and rookie Tim Wright are the only tight ends on the roster.
