Bucs Week 8 Tuesday Injury Report: Vita Vea, Matt Feiler listed as non-participants

It’s a short week for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and it could mean that some of their starting players will be out for Thursday night against the Buffalo Bills.

The Bucs released another injury report Tuesday, but it should be noted that the team conducted a walkthrough practice — this means that any player’s status is an estimation, as the team didn’t truly practice. That being said, Bucs defensive tackle Vita Vea was once again listed as a non-participant with a groin injury, which leaves his status for Thursday in doubt. Bucs guard Matt Feiler is dealing with a knee injury and is unlikely to play on Thursday, paving the way for either Aaron Stinnie or Nick Leverett to take his place.

Quarterback Baker Mayfield told reporters Tuesday that his knee injury is simply a pain tolerance issue moving forward and that he’s fine to play. He was listed as a limited participant in practice.

Here’s what Tampa Bay’s injury report looks like for Tuesday:

On Buffalo’s side, tight ends Dawson Knox and Quintin Morris and linebacker Baylor Spector were the only players listed as non-participants. Knox is set to have surgery on his wrist which will keep him out for quite some time.
