Eagles Injury News: Bucs will be without 3 key players on Thursday
Tampa Bay will officially be without three of their starters on Thursday.
TE Rob Gronkowski, LB Lavonte David, and S Antoine Winfield Jr. have all been ruled OUT for tomorrow night’s game in Philadelphia. Gronkowski will miss his 3rd straight game as he continues to deal with the injured ribs suffered in Week 3.
David and Winfield Jr. both haven’t practiced all week due to concussions. Tampa Bay elevated TE Deon Yelder from their practice squad to give them another available player at the position.
Reigning Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady has been dealing with an injured thumb for much of the week but appears to be good to go for Thursday. Lane Johnson will miss his third consecutive game for the Eagles due to a personal matter. TE Dallas Goedert remains on the COVID-19 reserve list.

Jason Kelce said he met with Lane Johnson at the #Eagles practice facility last week. Hasn’t seen him this week. Thoughts are obviously with him. Team is behind him. Will leave any explanation for his absence to Lane.— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) October 12, 2021
