The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are hurting in the secondary. Sean Murphy-Bunting went down in Week 1 with a dislocated elbow, then Jamel Dean suffered a knee injury in Week 3. And Carlton Davis just exited Sunday night's game with a quad injury.

The latest on Murphy-Bunting and Davis is discouraging news.

Head coach Bruce Arians doesn't believe Davis and Murphy-Bunting will return "anytime soon." That's a gut punch for this banged-up secondary and squashes any optimism regarding quick recoveries for that duo.

And top of that, safety Antoine Winfield Jr. has a concussion that could sideline him in Week 5 against the Miami Dolphins. The Bucs recently added veteran corner Richard Sherman to boost their secondary, but they're in dire need of another move to make up for their recent losses.

The Bucs head into their Week 5 game as 10-point favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
