Bucs add two to injury report

Bucs CB Phillip Buchanon

Tampa Bay added two players to their injury report on Thursday, while the Colts continue to be without several players as workouts continued for Sunday's game.

Tampa Bay added cornerback Phillip Buchanon (foot) and wide receiver Ike Hilliard (ankle) to the injury report on Thursday, but head coach Jon Gruden did not mention either player during his short post-practice press conference.

Hilliard has been on the injury report each of the last two weeks with an ankle injury and has played both weeks. He caught seven passes for 114 yards last week. He and Buchanon worked out in a limited fashion.

Cornerback Brian Kelly (groin) worked out fully for a second straight day, while defensive end Greg Spires (ankle) participated in full workouts a day after a limited workout.

For the Colts, running back Joseph Addai (chest), wide receiver Roy Hall (shoulder), wide receiver Marvin Harrison (knee), linebacker Freddy Keiaho (concussion), defensive back T.J. Rushing (hamstring), safety Bob Sanders (chest) and tight end Ben Utecht (concussion) did not practice. Tackle Tony Ugoh (ankle) and linebacker Clint Session (hamstring) completed a full practice one day after sitting out.

Due to the shortness of Gruden's press conference, there is no transcript today.
