The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had their walk through practice Thursday ahead of Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers. Greg Auman of The Athletic reports that running back Giovani Bernard made his first appearance at practice Thursday and was working on the side with Buccaneers trainers.
Bucs have another walkthrough practice this morning. First sign of Gio Bernard working with trainers on the side, though he doesn’t look like someone returning this week.

Bernard was placed on injured reserve December 14th with an MCL issue. As Auman reports, working on the side is a far stretch from being ready to play this Sunday. Look for a more realistic date of week one of the playoffs.
