Buccaneers vs. Panthers: Wednesday injury update

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Both teams have released their final injury reports heading into Thursday night's game.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin has officially been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Carolina Panthers.

Martin's status is the most unsurprising news of the week. It was clear he would be unable to play with a shoulder injury he sustained against the Atlanta Falcons, but the possibility was kept alive.

The Carolina Panthers will be at full strength outside of Dwan Edwards. He was unable to practice again today, but the organization has not yet ruled him out -- instead listing his status as "questionable". He's surprisingly joined on the injury report by Steve Smith, who practices all week but was limited today with an ankle injury. It doesn't look like the Buccaneers will catch a break, however, as he is listed as "probable".
