Tampa Bay dealing with several key injuries before Thursday’s game against the Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles won’t be the only ones dealing with injuries this Thursday. Following their game against the Miami Dolphins yesterday, several key players for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were left dealing with significant injuries. Linebacker Lavonte David headlines the Bucs players who will be missing time.
David suffered a sprained ankle against Miami and has already been ruled out for this week’s game. Meanwhile, Tom Brady was dealing with a thumb injury following their victory. Brady will play through it, and since he isn’t human, it shouldn’t slow him down. Some of Brady’s best games occurred while dealing with a thumb injury, so don’t expect him to be any less dominant.
Meanwhile, Jason Pierre-Paul has been playing through a broken finger but hasn’t missed any time. Rob Gronkowski has missed Tampa Bay’s last two games with a devastating rib injury, but there’s been no word yet regarding his availability for Thursday.
For the Eagles, their injury report hasn’t come out yet, but Lane Johnson likely won’t be playing once again due to a personal matter. Landon Dickerson left Sunday’s game early with an ankle injury, but Nick Sirianni said he expects him to play this week.
