Bucs’ Gholston, James Likely Out for Preseason Game 3 vs the Bills


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers begin their preparations today for this week’s third preseason game against the Buffalo Bills and they’ll likely be without defensive end William Gholston and running back Mike James.

In his day-after-game press conference, head coach Lovie Smith said both players would likely sit out, noting, “It’s probably going be a while for [Gholston].”

Gholston and James both left Saturday’s game with shoulder injuries.

Others leaving the game with injuries — strong safety Major Wright (back), cornerback Rashaan Melvin (left ankle) and Brandon Magee (right ankle).

The team should know more about the extent of those injuries on Monday.
