Buccaneers' Evan Spencer: Still in play for one of final receiver spots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spencer (knee) remains a contender for one of the Bucs' final receiver spots, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 23-year-old missed last Friday's game against the Browns with a knee injury suffered against the Jaguars the previous week, but has been back on the practice field this week. Spencer figures to receive plenty of reps in Wednesday night's preseason finale as the Bucs attempt to finalize the back end of their wide receiver corps. The former Buckeye has had a quiet showing through the two exhibition contests he has participated in, securing just two of six targets for 27 yards.

Buccaneers' Mike Glennon: Likely to remain with Bucs through 2016 season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Glennon is a main reason that head coach Dirk Koetter expresses optimism about the team's depth at quarterback, and is thus unlikely to be dealt heading into his contract year this season, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The four-year veteran appears destined for another season of holding the clipboard behind Jameis Winston, unless a quarterback-needy team comes calling with an offer the Bucs can't refuse. One such squad could conceivably be the Vikings, whose fans voted for Glennon as their top choice to replace the fallen Teddy Bridgewater (knee) in an online poll late Tuesday as reported by Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times. However, Koetter appears to value the insurance policy of having a backup in Glennon who started 18 games in 2013-14, particularly with likely third-string signal-caller Ryan Griffin having yet to take a regular-season snap in the NFL. With Glennon likely on the move next offseason to a potential starting opportunity elsewhere, his presence on the roster in 2016 would provide the Bucs with the luxury of grooming Griffin for one additional season.

Buccaneers' Jonathan Krause: Prospects not looking good heading into preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Krause's chances to claim one of the Bucs' final receiver spots appear dim heading into the preseason finale versus Washington, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 24-year-old had impressed early in camp and amassed three catches for 56 yards over the first two exhibition games, but his participation was notably reduced in last Friday's victory over the Browns. Krause received only nine snaps in that contest and was not targeted, while also being shut out of the punt return rotation. He figures to have some extended opportunity to showcase his skills in Wednesday night's finale versus the Redskins with the top receiving trio of Mike Evans, Vincent Jackson and Adam Humphries expected to play sparingly, if at all.

Buccaneers' Vincent Jackson: Held out of practice for second straight day Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (undisclosed) was held out of practice Tuesday for a second straight day, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The veteran receiver was also held out of practice Monday, yet no details as to why have been provided by the team and there is no sign that the absence is related to anything serious. In fact, Jackson may simply have received back-to-back days off for rest, as there appeared to be no indication of injury while he amassed a team-high nine targets in last Friday's victory over the Browns. Jackson is unlikely to play in the preseason finale against the Redskins on Wednesday, but that is more than likely due to the fact that the majority of the team's starters will also take a seat. At present, his status for Week 1 against the Falcons does not appear to be in jeopardy.

Buccaneers' Kenny Bell: Hoping to get second look at kickoff returner in preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bell is likely to receive some work at kickoff returner in Wednesday's preseason finale following the release of Donteea Dye, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. "I hope so. I do believe I will," Bell said of the opening for a kickoff returner with Donteea Dye waived this week after sustaining a hamstring injury. "Anything I can do in a positive manner is a good way to get on the team, whether it's gunning, covering kicks or returning them. ... Obviously I would love a second chance. I haven't gotten one yet, but definitely ready for that opportunity."

The second-year receiver is in search of redemption following his fumble on the opening runback of preseason against the Eagles, a miscue that apparently cost him any further opportunities in that capacity over the following two games. With the release of Donteea Dye (hamstring) on Monday, Bell is hopeful of having a chance to put the mistake behind him in Wednesday's preseason finale against the Redskins. A strong showing on special teams could well be pivotal to the former Cornhusker's bid for a roster spot, considering that there are still numerous candidates vying for what is likely two open slots at most. Bell and his fellow competitors should all see extensive time against Washington, as Mike Evans, Vincent Jackson and Adam Humphries are all expected to play sparingly, if at all.
