"He looks much quicker and more decisive," Bucs defensive coordinator Mike Smith said of Lavonte David. He also said he thought David finished off the year with more splash plays than anybody despite fighting through some nagging injuries and believes he's picking up right where he left off.

"Anytime you play that first game, it's gonna stun your body," said Bucs defensive coordinator Mike Smith. "No matter if it's your first year or your tenth year." Players are still getting into condition after the layoff they had with Hurricane Irma. A rotation at certain positions has helped combat it.

LeSean McCoy said Wednesday that Tyrod Taylor "gets blamed for everything" but "without him, we would have had no shot" in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

LeSean McCoy said Wednesday of given a rest day, "That's what a rest day is for, the maintenance part of it. Keep me fresh. It's a long season. That's coach's decision. He's the boss. I won't argue that." As for whether McCoy would have been rested had it not been for wrist and groin ailments, he said, "I think I would still get the day off, just to keep my legs fresh. We talked about it. I wanted to go out there and run out there a little bit, but that's why he's the head man, he makes the calls. I follow them. Get our guys healthy for this week. It's a big game for us."

Ravens nickel-back Lardarius Webb was asked whether he thought he would be tied for team lead in turnovers. "I didn't think I would be on the field," Webb said. Webb expected to be a player-coach this year until injuries to Tavon Young and Maurice Canady opened a spot for him.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh brought up the team's tweet (which has since been deleted) that put Ravens face paint on the Queen. "The Ravens do guard the Tower of London," Harbaugh said with a smile. The Ravens play the Jaguars in London on Sunday.

Michael DiRocco ESPN Staff Writer 

Jaguars announce that C Brandon Linder (knee) and LB Lerentee McCray (knee) are not expected to practice on Wednesday. Linder was on the injury report last week with a knee injury but played every offensive snap against Tennessee. Linder is the Jaguars' best offensive lineman and it would be a huge blow to the line if he is unable to play against Baltimore. The Ravens are allowing just 85.0 yards per game rushing and have given up just 10 points in two weeks.
