Tampa Bay wide receiver Michael Clayton was held out of practice for the second straight day on Thursday with a bone bruise on his knee.
Should Clayton, who is listed as questionable on the team’s injury report, not be able to play vs. Washington, WR Ike Hilliard will start in his place on Sunday.
“Yep, he’ll be stepping up for us. Ike will play,” Bucs head coach Jon Gruden said of Hilliard. “Ike will start and Edell Shepherd would obviously be part of the package, also.”
Safety Dexter Jackson (hamstring) was “off and on” during Thursday’s workout and remains questionable for the game vs. the Redskins.
