The Tampa Bay Buccaneers come into Sunday's contest versus the Houston Texans dealing with a slew of injuries, and while the Texans are dealing with their No. 1 wide receiver (Andre Johnson) being out of the lineup, the Bucs streaky offense could suffer mightily without their No. 1 wideout.
That wideout would be Mike Williams, as the Syracuse product was held out of practice on Wednesday due to a thigh injury. Williams sustained the injury in last week's 27-16 loss to the New Orleans Saints. If Williams cannot go, expect second-year pro Arrelious Benn to step up as the No. 1 receiver for Josh Freeman's offense.
Here is the breakout of players participating in practice Wednesday for the Tampa Bay Bucs:
G Jeremy Zuttah (knee)
Did not practice
DT Frank Okam (calf)
WR Mike Williams (thigh)
S Tanard Jackson (hamstring)
