Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive back Eric Wright missed Sunday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons. There is still no timetable for his return to the field.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers seemed to avoid the injury bug yet again in Sunday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons. After the loss dropped the Buccaneers to 6-5, four games out of the NFC South lead, they know they could need defensive back Eric Wright back in the lineup.

Unfortunately, Wright is still unsure about his status for next week's game against the Denver Broncos. Wright has been dealing with an Achilles injury. In addition to Wright, another Buccaneers secondary player has also been dealing with a nagging injury.

Safety Cody Grimm was ruled out of Sunday's game because of a hamstring injury. He was limited in practice the entire week leading up to Sunday's game. As of right now, his status for next week's game against the Broncos is questionable.

The Buccaneers next play the Broncos on Sunday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium in Denver. The game is set for a kickoff at 4:05 p.m. ET, and the game will be televised on Fox.
