Buccaneers CB Carlton Davis (groin) is doubtful for Saturday's game against the Lions. That should mean a playing-time boost for CB Jamel Dean, though he played just 78% of the snaps in a Week 15 return from his own groin injury. Dean and Sean Murphy-Bunting are in play for IDP use, but neither makes for a strong fantasy option.
The Buccaneers on Thursday placed CB Carlton Davis on IR with the quad injury he suffered Sunday night at New England. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Bucs expect Davis to miss 4-6 weeks. Tampa might get CB Jamel Dean back this week. He put in limited practices Wednesday and Thursday. Otherwise, Richard Sherman, Pierre Desir and Ross Cockrell (slot) look like the top corners.
Buccaneers CB Carlton Davis left in the 2nd quarter of Sunday night's game at New England with a leg injury. Davis went down holding his left quad and then needed 2 trainers to help him off the field. He was putting no weight on the affected leg. We'll see about the diagnosis for Davis.
Buccaneers CB Carlton Davis is active for tonight's game against the Patriots. He turned up questionable late Saturday but is good to go.
The Buccaneers have downgraded CB Carlton Davis to questionable for Sunday night's game against the Patriots. He's listed with rib and abdominal injuries, but it sounds like the ab injury is the more significant. If Davis sits, it'll leave Tampa without its top 3 corners. Sean Murphy-Bunting is already on IR with an elbow injury, and the Bucs ruled Jamel Dean out for the game with a knee injury. Richard Sherman is now expected to start, just a few days after signing with the team. The whole situation can only be good news for New England wideouts.
