Darrelle Revis probable, Carl Nicks out for Buccaneers

Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis (knee) practiced fully on Friday and is probable for Sunday’s game at the Jets, according to the club’s injury report.

Revis, who’s returning from an ACL tear suffered last season as a member of the Jets, has practiced without limitation throughout the week.

While Revis appears likely to suit up on Sunday, the Buccaneers will not have left guard Carl Nicks (foot) and tight end Tom Crabtree (ankle). Both have been ruled out. Gabe Carimi appears in line to start for Nicks.

Starting right tackle Demar Dotson was added to the injury report on Friday with a back ailment, but he’s probable for Week One after a limited practice today.

Buccaneers reserve cornerback Rashaan Melvin (hamstring) is listed as doubtful after missing a third day of practice. Also, reserve running back Mike James (eye) and fullback Erik Lorig (calf) are questionable. James and Lorig were limited Friday.

    Nicks is a huge loss; Freeman is an absolutely great QB if he can stay calm in the pocket and feel safe, but, get in the guy’s face and he’s just godawful. Has a penchant for terrible back-foot throws into traffic when somebody’s charging up the gut at him, and not having Carl Nicks is going to hurt. A lot.

    Wasn’t it Nicks that was out a lot of last year anyways?

    Nicks and Crabtree are the only serious losses. Bucs have no depth at TE and Nicks is a great player when he can play.

    Bucs will be fine with Carimi in at LG as long as he open holes for Martin! The key for me is Joseph. If he’s back to his all pro self, we will be just fine! Bucs by 10
