Injury report

The Bucs held G Davin Joseph (knee) and RB Doug Martin (shoulder) out of Wednesday’s light practice.

“By design, we wanted to rest them and treat them,’’ coach Greg Schiano said. “We kind of did a jog-through and then we had a practice for the older guys with just the ball caps and kind of went through our paces that way. It was just strategically giving those guys treatment.”
