Lynch and Sapp are suffering from knee sprains, but they could return to practice in a limited fashion on Friday.
"They have legitimate injuries," said Gruden. "Warren has some swelling on his knee and John Lynch is a guy who was very questionable last week, played the whole game and is still a little bit sore. They need a little extra time to get ready to play a very physical Philadelphia team."
PewterReport.com will post Tampa Bay's updated injury report on Friday afternoon.
