Marcus Thigpen has been promoted to the Buccaneers active roster.

The Buccaneers are dealing with injuries to their running back core with Doug Martin questionable for Sunday along with rookie Charles Sims. If neither are able to go Bobby Rainey will be the lead back with Mike James and Marcus Thigpen as back up.

The Buccaneers have waived kick returner Trindon Holliday.

Holliday only has value as a kick and punt returner making his value very limited on most rosters.

Doug Martin (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game vs the Browns.

Martin hasn't practiced all week making it unlikely that he will play. Even when active this season Martin has struggled and has likely been passed by Bobby Rainey as the teams starting back with Charles Sims potentially stealing some carries as well.

Vincent Jackson (rib) was limited in practice on Thursday.

Jackson was able to play this past weekend and will have no trouble suiting up on Sunday against the Browns. He's a very solid WR2 this weekend against the Browns.

Coach Lovie Smith says a decision will be made later in the week on Charles Sims playing Sunday.

Sims was a hot commodity on the waiver wire this week as there was plenty of anticipation that he will be active this Sunday. With Doug Martin dealing with an injury the Buccaneers will likely use Bobby Rainey and Mike James if both Martin and Sims are inactive.

Trindon Holliday hurt his hamstring in practice on Thursday.

Holliday has no fantasy value with the majority of his playing time coming on special teams.

Doug Martin did not practicing again on Thursday, but no longer wearing a boot on injured left foot.

Martin has really struggled this season and has likely lost his starting spot with Bobby Rainey and rookie Charles Sims taking some reps away from him.

Coach Lovie Smith says rookie RB Charles Sims has a chance to play on Sunday.

Sims is a duel-threat back with the ability to catch the ball out of the backfield and will likely be given a chance to display those skills with how poor the Buccaneers running attack has been this season.

WR Vincent Jackson (rib), DE Michael Johnson (hand) and C Evan Dietrich-Smith (knee) were limited in practice Wednesday.

All are important pieces of the Buccaneers team but will likely be questionable for Sunday if they are unable to practice fully prior to game time.
