Two star running backs will miss their Week 12 tussles.
Foster didn't practice Thursday or Friday while still nursing the groin injury he suffered in Week 9 that forced him to miss last Sunday's contest. When healthy this season, Foster has looked explosive and has displayed his easy running style. He currently sits at third in the NFL in rushing with 822 yards.
Bush will miss his second straight game and fourth of the season as he deals with a nagging ankle injury. It's been a disappointing season for the back, who has struggled to stay healthy, lacked explosion when on the field -- his longest run has been a 26-yarder -- and has topped 50 yards in a game just once.
Here's the rest of Sunday's injury news:
- Ben Tate is active for the Vikings less than a week after being picked up from the waiver wire following his release from the Browns. Matt Asiata (concussion) is inactive for Minnesota and Tate is expected to have a role. Wideout Greg Jennings (ribs) and left tackle Matt Kalil (knee) will both play for the Vikings against the Packers. Defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (knee) is inactive.
- The Bucs will be at full strength at the running back position for the first time all season. Both Doug Martin (ankle) and Charles Sims (ankle) will both be active together for the first time all season. Martin hasn't played in three games and will be good to go. Linebacker Lavonte David (hamstring) will miss a game for the first time in his career.
