Leonard Fournette is dealing with an ankle injury. It's a hip-groin injury for Scotty Miller.

Bucs starting cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting was limited in practice today (an earlier post said he did not practice, but he was merely not doing drills in the portion of practice that was open to media). I did watch him go through some stretching exercises. The Bucs are taking more of a "wait and see" approach with his groin/hamstring but if he can't go, they feel good about Antoine Winfield, Jr. stepping in at his nickel role.

Bucs wide receivers Chris Godwin and Scotty Miller both aren't practicing today, but are on the sidelines with teammates. Godwin suffered a hamstring injury against the Broncos and will be out against the Chargers. Not looking good for the Bears on a shortened week either. Miller's issue is unclear but we'll talk to Bruce Arians here in a bit.

The Bucs have added former USC, Raiders and Texans wide receiver Isaac Whitney to their practice squad. This fills the roster spot created after tight end Daniel Helm was signed to the San Francisco 49ers active roster off the Bucs' practice squad.

Sources: Bucs WR Godwin likely out vs. Chargers

Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin is expected to miss Sunday's game against the Chargers because of a hamstring injury and could also miss Week 5 against the Bears, sources confirmed to ESPN.

Wild stat: Mike Evans finished the Broncos game with two touchdowns but just 2 total receiving yards. Only one other player in the Super Bowl era has finished with two TDs and just 2 receiving yards: Howard Cross in 1994 for the Giants.

Brady, Barrett lead Buccaneers past Broncos 28-10

Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes and Shaq Barrett celebrated his homecoming with a pair of sacks, one for a safety, in Tampa Bay's 28-10 victory over the winless Denver Broncos on Sunday.

The Bucs' defense notched three sacks in the first half but allowed Jeff Driskel to go 6-for-6 for 74 passing yards and a touchdown running the hurry-up just before halftime. That can't happen. They are now without starting cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting (who also serves as their nickelback in nickel situations) -- he suffered a hamstring and groin injury and is doubtful to return.

Not much more you can ask for in a first half for the Bucs' offense against the Broncos. Tom Brady's gone 15-of-24 for 166 passing yards and three TDs -- two to Mike Evans and one to Chris Godwin. What's most impressive -- both of Evans' TDs were caught lining up against Justin Simmons.

With his second-quarter touchdown, Mike Evans now has four straight games with a receiving touchdown, tying the longest streak in Bucs history (done by several players, including Evans in 2014), per ESPN Stats & Info.

Antoine Winfield, Jr. chased down Jeff Driskel for a sack for an 8-yard loss — his second in consecutive weeks. Winfield hit 15.50 mph on that play, according to NFL Next Gen Stats. No one is more excited than his father, Antoine Winfield, who is getting to watch his son play as a pro in-person for the first time today.

Chris Godwin wasted no time since returning to the field this week — slipped into the corner of the end zone for a 10-yard touchdown catch on the Bucs' opening possession to make it 7-0. It was set up by a blocked punt (and recovery) by Pat O'Connor.

Here's a glimpse of Tom Brady taking the field in the Bucs' all-new, all-pewter uniforms at Mile High Stadium. Brady is 8-9 as a starter against the Broncos including the playoffs — the only team he has a losing record against in his career — but this current Broncos squad is so, so decimated by injuries.

Bucs' inactives against the Broncos: QB Ryan Griffin, WR Justin Watson, RB Ke'Shawn Vaughn, OLB Cam Gill, G Aaron Stinnie and DL Khalil Davis. RB Kenjon Barner was elevated from the practice squad.

For the 1-1 Bucs this week, the focus is less on the Broncos and more on not beating themselves. Here's a breakdown of what to watch for:
