Tampa Bay lost two more players to injuries during their 24-23 loss to Jacksonville on Sunday. Bucs DE Greg Spires (calf) and CB Torrie Cox (knee) are being evaluated. Their status should be determined later in the week.
Although they have 11 players on injured reserve, the Bucs are hoping to have several players, including TE Alex Smith (ankle), RB Michael Pittman (ankle), WR Michael Clayton (ankle), CB Brian Kelly (groin) and DE Patrick Chukwurah (shoulder), return from their respective ailments sometime soon.
The 4-4 Buccaneers will host the 3-4 Arizona Cardinals at Raymond James Stadium next Sunday. PewterReport.com will have more on this story throughout the day.
