The Dallas Cowboys were back at it today, practicing in preparation for their game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday night. As with yesterday, everyone on the injury report practiced, with only reserve tackle Ty Nsekhe limited in his participation. Long snapper Jake McQuaide has returned to the team and is practicing after a procedural move on the roster.
Of course, the big news for the Cowboys is the continued absence of All-Pro guard Zack Martin as he remains on the COVID list and is not expected to play.
Bucs gave a lot of veteran players a maintenance day Tuesday. Many did not participate, some limited. Jordan Whitehead is the only played expected to be out Thursday pic.twitter.com/hTpyeN1x6f— Rick Stroud (@NFLSTROUD) September 7, 2021
For the Bucs, they only have one issue. Their starting safety Jordan Whitehead will not be able to go on Thursday.
Tampa Bay head coach Bruce Arians told reporters in his Tuesday press conference that Whitehead will be out on Thursday as he continues to deal with a hamstring injury.
Otherwise, the Bucs are healthy.

It should be noted that the Bucs gave some veterans the day off.
