Bucs WR Sammie Stroughter is dealing with a foot injury that "may or may not be a longer-term issue."

The injury played a part in Jordan Shipley's re-signing. Stroughter was limited by a foot injury for a large chunk of 2011, and he could be headed to injured reserve if he's staring at any sort of a prolonged absence.

Bucs WR Sammie Stroughter (foot) has been ruled out for Week 7.

Stroughter returned to practice this week. The Bucs will allow him to use the bye week to get back to full speed before throwing him back in. He'll battle Preston Parker for slot duties in the second half of the season.

Bucs WR Sammie Stroughter (foot) returned to practice on Wednesday.

His return is a concern for fill-in slot receiver Preston Parker, who was already only about a 40-percent player on offense. Stroughter, who's been out since Week 1, was previously the Bucs' first-team slot man. While Parker has played well enough that he could conceivably run with the job, any threat to his already shaky playing time should be a worry for fantasy owners.

Bucs WR Sammie Stroughter (foot) has yet to resume practicing.

Stroughter remains out indefinitely following mid-September foot surgery. In the meain time, Preston Parker has taken the slot receiver job and run with it. Parker's two best games have come against the zone defenses of the Colts and Vikings. We're skeptical of his ability to maintain fantasy value on any kind of consistent basis.

Stroughter injured his left foot on a kickoff return yesterday and it sounds like he has some kind of fracture. Look for Preston Parker and Michael Spurlock to fill in as depth at receiver and kick returners for the next month or so.
