The bad news just keeps coming for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

After losing back-to-back games as heavy favorites against the Pittsburgh Steelers and Carolina Panthers, the Buccaneers are now banged up heading into a much tougher Thursday Night Football matchup against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 8.

Tampa Bay's receiving corps has been ravaged by injuries this year, and it looks like that trend will continue in Week 8 as Russell Gage is undergoing an MRI for a hamstring injury.

Meanwhile, safety Antoine Winfield suffered a concussion during Sunday's loss to Carolina and is currently in concussion protocol.

With just a few days until the next game, Winfield likely won't have enough time to clear protocol and return for Thursday's matchup.

While the Buccaneers were initially listed as 2.5-point favorites on Week 8's opening odds, they now find themselves as 1.5-point home underdogs against the Ravens on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds. Between their injuries and recent struggles, the Bucs have their work cut out for them as they look to stop Lamar Jackson in primetime.
