Buccaneers vs. Raiders 2012 injury report: Tampa Bay has only four men on injury report

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have only four men on their injury report, the fewest in the NFL. All are expected to play on Sunday.

Judging by the NFL injury report, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the healthiest team in the league. They face the Oakland Raiders in Week 9 with only four men on the injury report, all of them probable to play. In contrast, the Raiders list 16 players on Friday's injury report.

Defensive end Michael Bennett (ankle), tackle Donald Penn (wrist) and cornerbacks Brandon McDonald and Eric Wright (achillies) all participated fully in Friday's practice, are listed as probable for Sunday's game, and are expected to play.

The Raiders aren't so lucky. Starters Khalif Barnes and Shawntae Spencer will both miss another game, and starting linebacker Rolando McClain is questionable. The complete Oakland injury report is below.
