Josh Freeman and the rest of the Buccaneers could be facing an Oakland Raiders defense down as many as four starters.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers head to west this Sunday to take on an Oakland Raider team riding a two game win streak. However, it may be a good time for the Buccaneers to face the Raiders despite their recent hot streak since the Raiders may be without as many as four of their defensive starters.
Defensive tackle Richard Seymour missed Wednesday's practice as he continues to deal with a knee injury. In addition to Seymour, linebacker Keenan Clayton (shoulder), tackle Khalif Barnes (groin) and cornerback Shawntae Spencer (foot) were each absent from practice. Sebastian Janikowski was also limited in practice as he nurses a left groin ailment stemming from the lingering injury he suffered in the preseason.
Both running back Darren McFadden and his primary back up Mike Goodson were full participants in practice. McFadden had been dealing with a shoulder injury while Goodson is battling back from a toe injury he suffered in Sunday's win against the Chiefs. Kickoff for Sunday's game at O.Co Stadium is set for 4:05 p.m. ET.
