The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are relatively healthy heading into the their Week 4 matchup against the Washington Redskins. There was however the big blow when the team learned on Tuesday that defensive end Adrian Clayborn who is out for the year with a knee injury.

The defense was where the injuries occurred for the Bucs, but all of them were back up players. Reserve linebacker E.J. Biggers was slowed down by a foot injury and backup cornerback Leonard Johnson has a back issue. Both players were healthy enough to fully participate on Wednesday.

Dekoda Watson who is a backup linebacker was limited in practice with a chest injury, and defensive back Anthony Gaitor was the only player to completely site out practice and he was knocked out with a hamstring injury.

There was one starter who was limited on Wednesday, and that was left guard Carl Nicks who was slowed down with a toe injury.
