Angelo Crowell may be headed for the injured reserve, but he's not the only Tampa Bay Buccaneers player who is dealing with an injury. Bucs head coach Raheem Morris recently updated the media on the injury status of the team entering week three of the preseason. The list features quotes from Morris' recent press conference elaborating on the injuries.

Raheem Morris updates the injury list after Saturday’s victory of the Jacksonville Jaguars

LB Angelo Crowell – “Crowell tore his bicep. He more than likely will be out for the season. We will get the specifics a little later. He won’t be playing for us this year.”

RB Kareem Huggins – “He has a knee issue. It will be a couple of weeks. He hyper extended it. It wasn’t torn or damaged. Nothing like that, but he has to get that checked out.”

CB Elbert Mack - “He had an ankle sprain. It is a lot better then it looked. With it being a short week, it might be tough for him to make it back this week. If we were playing Saturday, he would be able to go I think.”

DE Louis Holmes – “He has a small sprain. He might miss a couple of days of practice, but he should be ready to go. I will have to check on that as we get closer to the game.”

WR Michael Clayton – “He was good, but just felt something Saturday night kind of come out. He might miss practice. He might miss this week, but he will be fine. He actually woke up this morning and felt pretty good.”

K Matt Bryant – “Bryant is still out. I don’t have an update on him yet. I will get some information on him via Matt Bryant once I see him in person.”

WR Antonio Bryant – “He is doing well and coming along great. He is right on schedule so everything is going according to plan there.”

WR Dexter Jackson – “He has an ankle sprain. I am not sure yet because I have to check it out, but I was not planning on playing him this week.”

LB Matt McCoy – “McCoy irritated his ankle a little bit. We will have to check that out as he goes throughout the week. He might have to miss some practice time.”

LB Jermaine Phillips – “He will be just limited this week. He will practice and be ready to go for the game. I am just going to limit his contact during the week. He is actually doing a lot better.”

C Jeff Faine – “He is going to be back this week.”

RB Earnest Graham – “We expect him back.”

TE John Gilmore – “He will be day-to-day”

S Donte Nicholson – “He is getting better every time we rest him. He should be ready for the game.”

TE Jason Pociask - “He is sore. He will practice and play.”

S Will Allen – “Allen should be back.”

WR Kelly Campbell – “He should be back this week.”

LB Niko Koutouvides – “He will practice and should be fine.”

DE Kyle Moore – “Moore is sore, but he should be okay.”
