Buccaneers safety T.J. Ward isn’t a fan of Thursday night games and it looks like he won’t be playing in one this week.

Ward has been listed as doubtful to play against the Patriots due to a hip injury. Ward did not play against the Giants last weekend and was listed as a limited participant in practice the last couple of days.

Two other members of the defense are also listed as doubtful. Safety Keith Tandy also has a hip injury and linebacker Lavonte David is dealing with an ankle injury that kept him from playing last Sunday.

If all three are out, they will join linebacker Kwon Alexander on the inactive list. Alexander remains sidelined by the hamstring injury that’s limited him to one appearance in Tampa’s first three games.

  1. Just can’t see a scenario where tampa wins this week with all the injuries. An inexperienced, rookie LB like Kendall Beckwith will be picked apart by TB12. Kwon is the most impactful player on the defense. Hope Jameis has the game of his life

  2. First the hurricane takes the bye week from the Bucs. Then the schedule gives us a Thursday game the week we have all the injuries.

    Koetter better be able to “coach ’em up” in a hurry.
