When the team heads into Philadelphia to play the Eagles tomorrow, they will be without three starters. The Buccaneers have ruled out TE Rob Gronkowski (ribs), LB Lavonte David (ankle), and S Antoine Winfield Jr. (concussion).

It was a short week of practice so there was a slim chance of Gronkowski and Winfield Jr. playing but there was zero chance that David was playing. The long week of rest after tomorrow’s game will benefit Gronkowski And Winfield Jr. while David is week-to-week after suffering an ankle sprain against the Dolphins last Sunday.

Expect to see more of Cameron Brate and O.J. Howard on offense and Kevin Minter and Mike Edwards on defense. The Buccaneers are currently seven point favorites heading into Lincoln Financial Field.
