Buccaneers injury report Wednesday recap.


Center Joe Hawley has returned to practice. Hawley has had knee issues through multiple games, however, the reaggravation of his knee during the Atlanta game took it’s toll making him sit out in the home game against the Bears. 

Offensive tackle Kevin Pamphile made a return to practice and fully participated in the activities. After suffering a concussion in the Atlanta game, Pamphile also sat out in the home game against Chicago.

Jacquizz Rodgers was still sidelined with a foot injury he sustained against the Raiders. There is no timetable set for his return.

Russell Shepard is back to practice. Shepard sustained a hip injury, against the Raiders, that had him sidelined for the last two games. His return to practice and his full participation points to him returning on Sunday. Hopefully.

Backup center Evan Smith missed practice Wednesday, as he sustained a knee injury in the game against the Chicago Bears last week. 

Veteran tight end Luke Stocker also missed Wednesday’s practice. He sustained an ankle injury against the Bears. He had missed weeks 3-5 this season with an ankle injury.
