Bryant, White Out Against Dolphins

Bucs wide receiver Antonio Bryant (knee) and defensive end Stylez G. White (shoulder) are out for tomorrow's game against the Miami Dolphins. Both players did not make the trip to Miami.

White has three sacks on the season and is coming off a 1.5-sack effort vs. the Packers last week. He injured his shoulder vs. Green Bay. Bucs reserve DE Tim Crowder, who has one sack, would start at right end in his place.

"If Stylez can't play it would have to be Tim Crowder," said head coach Raheem Morris on Friday. "He's been the most productive."

Bryant, whose knee ailment was aggravated on the flight home from London on Oct. 26, missed last Sunday's game vs. Green Bay. The Bucs are planning to rest Bryant in order to give him nearly one month worth of rest, including the bye week.

"We have an opportunity to probably get three weeks of rest there. Hopefully he can come back and finish this thing strong," said Morris.

Morris said Bryant, who led the Bucs in receptions last year with 83, is not a candidate to be placed on injured reserve at this time despite having dealt with the knee problem ever since he underwent minor knee surgery during training camp.

"Not yet," Morris said when asked if Bryant was a candidate for IR. "We're just going to see what he can do and see if he can bounce back. We've got eight more weeks, so he's got eight weeks to try and get it going. He won't become an IR victim for a while. We have some time."

Should Bryant, who has 16 catches for 229 yards and two touchdowns, not be able to play in Miami, WR Maurice Stovall would start in his place for the second straight week. Stovall has seven catches for 139 yards this season.

"You have to love what Stovall did last week," said Morris. "All he did was catch a few balls and do some things that were really positive. We also liked what [Brian Clark] did and sprinkling in Sammie [Stroughter] a little bit."
