The veteran ballhawk will thus be available to try to contain an emerging Seattle passing game that has become increasingly proficient as Russell Wilson has gotten progressively healthier.

Grimes (quadriceps) is questionable to play Sunday against the Seahawks, ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Grimes missed practice Wednesday, he was back full tilt Friday and appears to be trending in the right direction, health-wise. If he can't play, Javien Elliott projects to see additional snaps at corner.

Grimes (quadriceps) return to practice Thursday, taking part on a limited basis, Jenna Laine of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The activity marks Grimes' first since injuring his thigh during the first quarter of Sunday's win at Kansas City. His progress will be notable to watch, as he typically covers one side of the field in Tampa Bay's secondary.

Grimes, who had a pair of passes defensed in the Week 7 victory over the 49ers, is among the league leaders in that category, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The offseason acquisition has been paying dividends, particularly over the last three weeks, when he's amassed seven pass break-ups overall, propelling him to fourth overall in the league, with all three players ahead of him having played one more game than Grimes has. The veteran ball-hawk has already totaled multiple passes defensed in four of his first six games in a Tampa uniform, and his current three-game stretch of multiple disruptions is the first such streak by a Buccaneer since Brian Kelly accomplished the feat in 2004. With current total of nine contested passes in six games, Grimes is on pace to match Hall of Fame-bound corner Ronde Barber's career-high of 24 back in 2001.

Grimes (hamstring) collected four tackles (two solo), an interception and another pass defensed in Monday night's 17-14 victory over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Like many of his defensive teammates, Grimes was hurting coming into the contest, but was able to tough it out and haul in his first INT of the season in the process. His leaping fourth-quarter pick was key, as it came in the end zone on a pass intended for Greg Olsen with the score knotted at 14-14. Although the Bucs have undoubtedly sprung some leaks in the secondary to date this season, Grimes is at least providing solid tackle numbers (17), and if prior history is any indication, stands to snare a few more wayward passes before the season is through.

The Buccaneers have ruled Grimes (hamstring) as active for Monday's contest against the Panthers, Scott Smith of Buccaneers.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Grimes was able to participate in a full practice on Saturday, so this status update is not all that surprising. Expect him to take on his usual workload as one of the team's starting cornerbacks.

Grimes (hamstring) is questionable for Monday's game.

EDGE Analysis

Although he's officially listed as questionable for Monday's contest, it looks like Grimes will play Monday. Grimes practiced fully Saturday after being limited all week. The Bucs' corner carries more of a probable designation than questionable one, but the decision to play him will likely be made in the hours leading up to kickoff.

Grimes was credited with seven tackles (all solo) in Sunday's 40-7 loss to the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran corner was tied with Chris Conte and Kwon Alexander for the team lead in tackles, one of several statistical anomalies on a difficult afternoon for the Bucs. Grimes was part of a secondary that gave up 308 yards passing and three touchdowns to Carson Palmer en route to a 40-7 blowout loss, so the numbers rang rather hollow given the end result. Grimes and the secondary have a chance for redemption in Week 3 against a Rams offense that is decidedly less potent than the Cardinals.

Grimes stood out during the first day of joint practices with the Jags on Wednesday, the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran offseason acquisition has seemingly been making at least on impressive play every day during practices at One Buc Place, and the change of scenery to Jaguars camp didn't make him skip a beat. Grimes provided tight coverage against Jacksonville's talented receiver corps and was involved in the play of the day when he made a leaping one-handed interception of a Blake Bortles pass. Grimes is expected to be integral to the shoring up of a secondary that allowed the highest completion percentage in the league to opposing quarterbacks in 2015.
