Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Jeff Faine, Jeremy Trueblood, Earnest Graham do not practice

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are back at Tropicana Field for today's practice, and our Joe Smith reports the team is practicing without center Jeff Faine, right tackle Jeremy Trueblood and fullback Earnest Graham.

Faine (quad) returned on a limited basis on Wednesday after a three-week absence, but it was really just an attempt to test out the injury. We'll find out later how his muscle strain responded now that a day has passed.

Trueblood's knee injury kept him out against the Cardinals last week and he's still iffy for Sunday at Atlanta. Graham has a hamstring injury he's had off and on for a few weeks.

Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, a day after missing practice because of a neck injury suffered in the weight room, is back practicing and looks to be okay.

The team will be available for interviews back at One Buc Place following this morning's workout.
