Rookie G Zack Bailey, who suffered a foot/ankle injury in practice today, will not travel with the team to London. That leaves the Bucs with only six healthy offensive linemen, which would seem to make a subsequent roster move likely.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers placed guard Zack Bailey on injured reserve following his injury, and promoted fellow rookie Nate Trewyn from the practice squad to fill the void.
The Bucs will take on the Carolina Panthers on Sunday in London in a Week 6 matchup that has Tampa Bay designated as the home team. The Bucs agreed to play in the London series as part of the deal that named Raymond James Stadium as the venue for Super Bowl LV.

Tampa Bay will be without four other players on Sunday: G Alex Cappa (forearm), LB Jack Cichy (elbow), T Demar Dotson (hamstring) and WR Breshad Perriman (hamstring).
The good news for the Buccaneers is that they will have rookie linebacker Devin White back in action Sunday, as head coach Bruce Arians confirmed the team’s first round pick from the 2019 NFL Draft will start against Carolina.
White hasn’t played since injuring his knee in Week 2’s win over the Panthers. Rookie cornerback Jamel Dean (ankle) will also return to the field Sunday, providing a boost to a secondary that ranks last in the league.
