UPDATE (Sunday, 12:30 p.m.): Rachaad White and Devin White are active for the game against the Colts.

INDIANAPOLIS ― Much of the Bucs offense this season has been produced by running back Rachaad White, who has accounted for 813 total yards.

But White was added to the team’s injury report Saturday with a knee injury. He is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Colts in Indianapolis.

In addition, Tampa Bay ruled out defensive lineman Mike Greene with a calf injury.

Facing a myriad of injuries, the Bucs elevated receiver David Moore and defensive lineman Patrick O’Connor from the practice squad.

Tampa Bay already will be without starting linebacker Lavonte David (groin) and cornerback Jamel Dean (ankle). Linebacker Devin White is a game-time decision with a foot injury.

Rachaad White, who leads the Bucs with 459 rushing yards and four rushing TDs, also has become a weapon in the passing game. He has 41 catches for 354 yards and a touchdown as a receiver.

If Rachaad White is unable to go, the Bucs have been utilizing veteran running back Chase Edmonds as the No. 2 tailback. They also have rookie Sean Tucker and Ke’Shawn Vaughn available.

David, 33, was injured during last Sunday’s 27-14 loss to the 49ers. He leads the Bucs with 90 tackles this season. The next closest player is safety Antoine Winfield Jr., who trails David by 19 tackles.
