Four Bucs Ruled Out

November 9th, 2018

Injury report update.

The final injury report prior to Sunday’s game against the Redskins is out. Three starters and a backup won’t be dressing for the game.

Defensive end Vinny Curry (ankle) and corner M.J. Stewart (foot) won’t be on the field for the Bucs defense. Offensively, Evan Smith, who splits duties with Caleb Benenoch at right guard, has been ruled out with hip and a wrist injury.

Also not dressing Sunday is running back Ronald Jones with a bum hamstring.

All other Bucs who were previously on the injury report fully participated in practice Friday.

For the Redskins, running back Chris Thompson (rib) and offensive tackle Trent Williams (thumb) have been ruled out. Wide receiver Jamison Crowder (ankle), corner Quinton Dunbar (shin) and offensive tackle Morgan Morgan (knee) are all questionable for Sunday’s game.

    Curry is the only real loss IMO

    I know MJ is a rookie, but damn he always looks slow and flat footed.

    Also missing Sunday’s game against the Skins will be about half the capacity of Raymond James stadium. All suffering from a chronic case of misery suffered in week 3. There’s no timetable for their return.

  3. Easy Says:

    None of these guys have made a significant impact all season so it’s not that big of a loss. Nassib should be full time starter over Curry anyways.

  4. Season Is Over Says:

    Don’t forget to add Grimes and OHNO to the list as they haven’t been seen all year.

  5. miken Says:

    hopefully benenoch is out the year because he shouldn’t be on the field. The skins r really banged up.

  6. JimmyJack Says:

    Yep Big Papa. I will be MIA. Have been for 2 seasons now. I’m sure a Skin fan will be there in my place and I concede. His team provides more entertainment and for this week it is Washington’s stadium.

    I quit thinking that this team will defend their home town/turf.

    OT Morgan Moses is questionable

  8. GhostofSchiano Says:

    I will be at this game, Veterans Day gift from my son. If this game is like the last few though we may be leaving at half time. Guess I could stay for the third quarter and watch the NFL’s #2 offense face the Redskins prevent defense and gain mucho yardage. Or I could go home and cut the grass.

  9. Eric Says:

    how can you injure your hamstring when you haven’t run more than a yard or two all season?

  10. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    What in the world is up with Noah Spence…….we have DEs out injured and he still can’t get on the field?

    Did he all of the sudden forget how to play?…….he needs to be cut….he’s taking up a roster spot……somehow, I don’t think we’ve been told the truth about what is going on there.

    It’s time to insert Liedtke in at RG

  12. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Michael Liedtke is an option at Right Guard, But I would rather start Alex Cappa. The way I see it, until Dotson get’s injured, they’ve got to get Cappa some experience so he can replace him. Guard is not the same thing, but seeing as it is on the same side, he still might learn some things. And the experience blocking against opponents will gradually help him improve his ability.

  13. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Cappa is a tackle in my opinion

  14. aj Says:

    They need to let Cappa sit this year. I know we all want to see him, but he’s not ready. Everyone wants him to be the next Marpet, but Marpet was unique, as he already had an NFL body.

    Cappa does not have an NFL body, yet. But, it’s not like his school is renowned for its strength and conditioning program. Cappa looked like a puppy when drafted, huge paws that he needs to grow into. The Bucs coaches may not be getting the job done, but the strength and conditioning team will have him ready.

    And Cappa is a tackle. Putting him at guard will not play to his strengths. (and how did changing positions so young go for Marpet and Ryan Smith????)

    Cappa has elite balance. He flips those hips as good as anyone I’ve seen. He’s also keeps balance and leverage when he is out of position. His balance is his biggest strength and that would be wasted at guard.

    So let’s just give him the year to learn how to be a pro, and to let him lift and lift and lift until he has an NFL body. There is no point until he is strong enough. And he definitely has the frame for it.

  15. Not there yet Says:

    Anybody else ready to see Cappa? Hope licht isn’t trying to hide another suspect draft pick

  16. TheNorm Says:

    Vita Vea might as well not dress either. He’s invisible anyway.

  17. Defense Rules Says:

    @aj … “The Bucs coaches may not be getting the job done, but the strength and conditioning team will have him ready.” Would that be the same Bucs strength & conditioning team that has the rest of this Bucs team in such fantastic condition aj? Can’t ever remember a Bucs team that’s gotten so banged up/beaten up as this one.

  18. John B Says:

    It’s awful that at this point I’d be happy to just be within 7 at halftime and give up less than 30 points

    That’s where this train wreck is at

    What the heck is a green light at any time – never in the history of coaching had anyone ever let the prima Donna decide except DK

    What a joke

  19. Bucs Nihilist Says:

    Was Curry in a boot? Cause Carolina ran boot on his side over and over!

  20. Wesley Says:

    Can we just please forfeit the rest of the season.

  21. CocoaBchBuc Says:

    I will be there. My longest running friend (oldest?) friend flew in from DC. I am a Marine, and today is the Corps bday. Tomorrow is Veterans Day and my actual birthday. He flew in to take me to the, it’s gonna feel good taunting him after our win.

  22. donuts Says:

    Nice CocoaBch. Enjoy the game!

    Too many young kids from this years draft on the injury list.
