Tampa Bay Buccaneers DT Vita Vea (calf) has practiced all week, but his status for Week 3 is uncertain because conditioning indoors is different than playing football outdoors, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

Stewart (foot) also participated fully in practice Friday and were removed from the injury report. DE Vinny Curry (personal) did not practice Friday but also no longer appears on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Grimes being out could make the Saints passing game even more potent and allow Ted Ginn or rookie Tre'Quan Smith to get behind the secondary for a big score. Smith could be a game-time decision and will be needed against Cam Jordan and the Saints pass rush.
