Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Charles Sims and defensive tackle Gerald McCoy are listed as doubtful for Monday’s game against the Carolina Panthers, the club announced Saturday.
Sims and McCoy were unable to practice throughout the week due to knee and calf injuries, respectively.
The doubtful designation means it’s all but certain both players will miss the pivotal divisional clash.
With Sims sidelined, Jacquizz Rodgers is likely to be given the majority of the carries. Rodgers has seen limited action so far in 2016, rushing for 69 yards on 13 attempts.
Doug Martin’s return seems set to be delayed another week. The running back was also listed as doubtful with the hamstring injury that’s kept him out of the previous two games.
