Bucs list four players as questionable

Tampa Bay listed four players — three of them starters — as questionable for Sunday's game with Indianapolis. But all four may play on Sunday, as they all practiced.

Tampa Bay listed cornerback Phillip Buchanon (foot), wide receiver Ike Hilliard (ankle), cornerback Brian Kelly (groin) and defensive end Greg Spires (ankle) as questionable for Sunday's game against Indianapolis.

But all four participated fully in practice on Friday, an indication that all four could be available for Sunday's game.

Of the four, only Kelly missed last week's game. Kelly has fought this groin injury since it first happened against Seattle in the season opener. He missed the New Orleans game the following week, but started against St. Louis before missing last week's game against Carolina.

For Indianapolis, wide receiver Roy Hall (shoulder) and tight end Ben Utecht (concussion) won't play Sunday, as both are listed as out. Defensive back Marlin Jackson and tackle Tony Ugoh sat out Friday's workout, but weren't listed on the injury report and should play on Sunday.

Running back Joseph Addai (chest), wide receiver Marvin Harrison (knee), linebacker Freddy Keiaho (concussion), defensive back T.J. Rushing (hamstring) and safety Bob Sanders (chest) were all listed as questionable. None of them have participated in practice this week, leaving their availability for Sunday in question.

The Colts added wide receiver Aaron Moorehead (back) to the injury report after he failed to practice on Friday. He is listed as questionable.
