In other injury news, Bucs starting safety Jermaine Phillips sustained a broken thumb in Tampa Bay's 33-20 loss to Buffalo on Sunday. Bucs head coach Raheem Morris said Monday that the team is "really concerned" about Phillips' injury, which will be re-evaluated by the team doctors and trainers later today.
