The Tampa Bay Buccaneers took the practice field at One Buc Place Friday in preparation for the Washington Redskins. The team is sporting shorts, jerseys and helmets.
Bucs defensive end Gaines Adams (groin), cornerback Torrie Cox (ankle), running back Earnest Graham (hamstring), wide receiver Maurice Stovall (knee), defensive tackle Roy Miller (ankle), return specialist Clifton Smith (quad), running back Cadillac Williams (knee) and guard Jeremy Zuttah (hip) were participating in practice this morning.
Tampa Bay RB Derrick Ward (knee) was held out of practice for the third straight day due to his injury. He appears unlikely to play vs. the Redskins. In addition, center Jeff Faine (triceps), quarterback Byron Leftwich (hip), defensive lineman Kyle Moore (knee) and guard Marcus Johnson (ankle) were held out of Friday's practice. Faine and Moore have already been ruled out of Sunday's contest.
Bucs WR Antonio Bryant (knee) has been limited in practice this week. He was on the practice field in his jersey Friday, but it was unclear whether he was actually practicing with the rest of the team.
