NFL Injury Report: Buccaneers Without LeGarrette Blount For Second Consecutive Practice

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a big game this Sunday as they go on the road to play the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium. But as the Bucs prepare for the Giants, they were without a key member of the offense in practice on Thursday.

Running back LeGarrette Blount was listed as unable to practice as he continues to deal with an injury to his neck. The third-year back was unable to take the practice field for a second straight day. Carl Nicks, Tampa's fifth-year offensive lineman, was limited in practice as he continues to nurse an injured toe.

On the positive side, wide receiver Arrelious Benn, who has been hampered with an injury to his knee, was able to fully participate in Thursday's practice. Also with full participation were cornerbacks E.J. Biggers, who has been bothered by an injury to his foot, and Anthony Gaitor who has been nursing a hamstring injury.
