Tampa Bay defensive end Gaines Adams was held out of practice Thursday for the second straight day. He is nursing a groin injury he sustained vs. the New York Giants last Sunday.

“I’ve played through some injuries before, but with the groin it can get very serious, so we have to be careful. It’s not like a shoulder or anything like that. It’s dealing with my legs, and I use them on every play. We don’t want to strain it more or tear it.”

Should Adams not be able to play vs. the Washington Redskins, Tim Crowder or Stylez G. White would start in his place at right defensive end. However, Adams believes his chances of playing Sunday are "pretty good."

In addition to Adams, center Jeff Faine (triceps), quarterback Byron Leftwich (hip), defensive end Kyle Moore (knee), wide receiver Antonio Bryant (knee) and running back Derrick Ward (knee) were also held out of Thursday's practice.

Wide receiver Maurice Stovall (knee), cornerback Torrie Cox (ankle), running back Earnest Graham (hamstring), defensive tackle Roy Miller (ankle), running back Cadillac Williams (knee) and RB/return specialist Clifton Smith (quad) practiced Thursday.
