Buccaneers Injury Report, Week 15: Aqib Talib Sits Out Practice, Still Expected To Play

A day after news came out that Tampa Bay cornerback Aqib Talib was going to be back in the lineup against the Cowboys after missing this past Sunday's game with a hamstring injury, Talib sat out Thursday's practice. The reason for Talib sitting out Thursday was to give him some extra time to rest his hamstring, so that he can be as close to full strength when he goes up against the Cowboys wide receivers.

Tampa Bay did get defensive end Michael Bennett and defensive tacle Brian Price back at practice after missing Wednesday. Bennett has been bothered with a toe injury and Price has been slowed down by ankle injury.

Here is the full Tampa Bay injury report for Thursday:

Larry Asante, S Hamstring FP FP    
Arrelious Benn, WR Concussion DNP DNP    
Michael Bennett, DE Toe DNP FP    
Josh Freeman, QB Shoulder (Right) FP FP    
Albert Haynesworth, DT Knee DNP DNP    
Adam Hayward, LB Foot FP FP    
Brian Price, DT Ankle  DNP LP    
Sammie Stroughter, WR Knee LP DNP    
Aqib Talib, CB Hamstring FP DNP
