Clayton Hopes To Play Sunday

Bucs wide receiver Michael Clayton hopes to play vs. the New York Jets after being sidelined for last Sunday's game in Carolina with a MCL sprain.

"I'm taking it day-by-day. I may have a shot this week," said Clayton. "It's just an MCL strain. There's a lot of little things going on there, but there's no tears, so it's day-to-day."

Clayton, who has just 14 catches and one touchdown on the season, hopes to practice at One Buc Place today, but may have to wait until tomorrow to give it a go.

"I can [practice], but I don't know if they want me to," said Clayton. "I'll go tomorrow for sure. I'll have to get my two days in if I'm going to play. That's the schedule right now."

The former first-round pick said he's made a lot of progress since sustained the knee injury in Atlanta.

"It's night and day," said Clayton. "I couldn't even get around right after I did it. I hit a plateau for a few days, but over the last few days it's gotten a lot better. That's why I'm positive about possibly playing this week."

If Clayton can't go vs. the New York Jets, he would be replaced by WR Maurice Stovall.
