Several new names appearing on the Bucs' injury report this week, including Jameis Winston (foot). Shaq Barrett is dealing with a groin injury. Coach Bruce Arians said Beau Allen had an issue with the heat today.

No Devin White (knee) this morning at Bucs practice and Jamel Dean (No. 35, lower leg) is on the sideline. Devante Bond isn't practicing either. Bruce Arians didn't officially rule White out for the Giants game, but there is a strong chance he misses some time. It'd be better to rest him up this week and try to have him ready for the Rams the following week. His backup, Kevin Minter, also had a solid performance against the Panthers last week.

I'm told Noah Spence signed his contract with the Redskins this morning. They'll have to make a corresponding move to meet the 53-man roster requirement.

Bucs outside linebacker Shaq Barrett has been named NFC Defensive Player of the Week after his three-sack performance against the Panthers. He's the first Bucs player to receive the honor since 2015. "That's been a dream of mine since growing up, Barrett said. "I always played the game and created a player on the game, always tried to win the honors, and I finally got it in real life, so it's most definitely a dream come true."

Source tells me that the Redskins are planning to sign former Bucs outside linebacker Noah Spence tomorrow. Spence worked out for them last week. He also worked out for the Bears today, along with the Bills two weeks ago.

Bucs coach Bruce Arians on players asking their teams for trades: "We don't have anybody like that...The teams I've been on, we've never had those types of things. That seems to be ‘vogue' all of a sudden. I hope it changes," Arians said. I asked how he feels about players using social media to push that process. "I'm not a fan of it."

Bucs cornerback Vernon Hargreaves called Saquon Barkley "the best I've ever seen." He said, "His vision — you turn the film on and it's like, ‘OK he's bottled up, OK he's not bottled up, OK he's bottled up, OK, touchdown — it's ridiculous." Hargreaves didn't get to face him when the Bucs were in New York last year — he was on IR then with a shoulder injury.

Bucs coach Bruce Arians on what last week's road win did for them: "I think it was big for their confidence. I had the confidence all along. It really depends on them, the locker room. I think their confidence is pretty high right now. We talked about, 'We have to practice the same this week after a win as we did after a loss.' The sense of urgency can't leave."

Jamel Dean (lower leg) isn't on the field with the cornerbacks today. No sign of linebacker Devin White (knee) either. Dean left Thursday night's game in a boot (X-rays were negative for fractures). White has a sprained MCL.

The Bucs have signed former Seahawks wide receiver Amara Darboh to their practice squad and have released Emanuel Hall, team announced. Darboh was a third-round pick in 2017 out of Michigan and played in 16 career games with Seattle.

This Just In  

Bucs coach Bruce Arians said rookie linebacker Devin White has a Grade 1 MCL sprain in his left knee and will be "day to day." White has not been ruled out for Week 3 against the Giants, but there is the possibility he misses a game or two. He suffered the injury in the first quarter of Thursday's win over the Panthers, left the game and did not return.

Bucs coach Bruce Arians said rookie linebacker Devin White has a Grade 1 MCL sprain and will be "day to day." He is walking around. The initial diagnosis last night was also a sprain. He has not been ruled out against the Giants but there is the possibility he misses some time. They have to wait and see.

Bucs use goal-line stand to beat Panthers 20-14

Jameis Winston threw for 208 yards and a touchdown, Tampa Bay held Cam Newton in check and came up with a late goal-line stand and the Buccaneers beat the Carolina Panthers 20-14 early Friday to give coach Bruce Arians his first victory with the team.

Todd Bowles' defense has allowed just one offensive touchdown in two games. This is after the Bucs gave up an average of 29 points a game last year. The work he's done with that group — between the scheme shift and getting guys like Vernon Hargreaves and Jordan Whitehead to play so confidently — deserves major kudos.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Two sources tell me that Bucs linebacker Devin White will undergo an MRI tomorrow but they believe he has a sprain in his knee. This was first reported by Pewter Report. They're still not 100-percent certain but a source close to the situation believes "he's fine."

Jameis Winston is 4-of-5 for 105 yards and a touchdown on passes of 15+ yards downfield. Winston was only 2-of-6 on such passes for 44 yards in Week 1. He's been able to set his feet tonight with a cleaner pocket.

It took nearly an entire half, but the Bucs finally got the ball to Mike Evans — Jameis Winston connected with him deep down the left sideline for 41 yards, then hit Chris Godwin on a skinny post for a TD. That was a drive this offense has desperately needed. They hadn't been able to get out of their own way these first six quarters of the season, with penalties, drops, interceptions, players not running their routes properly. The exception to that was one TD drive last week (also to Godwin), who has really stepped up in this game. He is 5-for-5 for 79 yards with three catches of 20+ yards.

Injury update: Bucs linebacker Devin White is out with a knee injury. He's been replaced by Kevin Minter.

Official weather delay time for Bucs-Panthers: 26 minutes. That's around how quickly the storm came through during pregame.
