The Bucs final injury report came out on Friday with three players out for the game, two questionable, and one doubtful. But on Saturday there was an unexpected addition as rookie linebacker Devin White was added to the injury report with an illness. White’s status for the game is questionable.

White also was a late injury report addition before Week 1 of the regular season, where it was found out later that White had tonsilitis. White did end up playing in the game. The illness in question for White this time around is not known.

If White were not able to go for the game, backup linebacker Kevin Minter would get the starting role in his position. Minter spent three games as the starter from Weeks 3 through 5 when White was out with a knee injury and played very well.

With the addition of White to the injury report, that puts White, Alex Cappa and Jameis Winston as questionable. Donovan Smith is doubtful and Beau Allen, Mike Evans, and Anthony Nelso are out for the game.

  2. Good thing we have Minter, he’s no Devin White but he sure is a good back up who filled in nicely at the beginning of the season.

  3. Minter is a pro’s pro. He knows his role and fulfills his responsibilities. Just does his job when called on. That’s what u want from ur depth players.

  4. The 1st game Devin had been very sick. I understand wanting to play, but he had lost 15 lbs I think. IMO should have waited 1 week to play. Devin has a very bright future ahead of him.

  5. Devin should not play. If he has a flu like virus, some of those illnesses have been lasting for 2 weeks. We will be fine without him this week but would really like to have him for that Texans game. Hopefully the rest of the team stays healthy!

  7. Bucs has been fairly injury free this year until this week. Quite a few now if Cappa and Smith don’t go I’d be worried about Winston getting hurt with blind side hit.

    That does suck about White he’s been fun to watch.

  10. I agree Fredster. Don Smith takes a beating here on this board, if he can’t go it could be a long day for whomever plays QB.
