William Moore and Leonard Hankerson were both held out of Wednesday's practice, as expected. Hankerson has a hamstring injury that he's been dealing with for a couple of weeks, and Moore is battling a groin strain that he suffered during Sunday's game against the Titans.
Linebacker O'Brien Schofield (knee), defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux (back) and scrappy wide receiver Nick Williams (hamstring) were all limited in Wednesday's practice.
I would expect Kemal Ishmael to get the start on Sunday if Moore is unable to go. Groin injuries can linger, and if a player pushes it before the groin is healed, they can get dramatically worse very quickly, so I'm not terribly optimistic about Moore playing Sunday. As far as Hankerson, it's very possible the team will finally activate Justin Hardy to round out the depth chart if Hankerson is unable to play Sunday.
We'll monitor the status of all of these players throughout the week.
Your thoughts on the injuries and your expectations for these players against the Bucs on Sunday?
