Source tells me that Bucs defensive tackle Stevie Tu'ikolovatu suffered a torn tricep and will require surgery, hence why he was waived/injured. If he clears waivers, the team has the option of placing him on injured reserve or reaching an injury settlement. A settlement is the likely scenario here.

The Bucs have waived (injured) defensive tackle Stevie Tu'ikolovatu and signed defensive tackle Drew Iddings. Tu'ikolovatu had been placed on IR last year with a knee injury before the season even began, so they really haven't gotten to see what he can do. Vita Vea is also still recovering from a calf injury, so that position has definitely taken a hit.

Bucs head coach Dirk Koetter called Jason Pierre-Paul a "pleasant surprise" today, after the first of two joint practices against the Titans. "I guess wasn't expecting JPP to be the practice player and the leader that he's been so far. I'm really fired up about it. Sometimes a guy that's got his pedigree comes in and is looking for ways out of drills, and that's not him at all."

I'm eager for some of the Bucs' young corners -- Carlton Davis, M.J. Stewart, Ryan Smith --- to go up against a now-healthy Corey Davis, who has had a really solid camp. Also, one-on-ones OL vs. DL are always a blast in joint practices. Give me Taylor Lewan vs Noah Spence.

Things to watch for with the Bucs-Titans joint practices: Jameis Winston/Ryan Fitzpatrick vs. a Titans secondary that may be one of the most underrated in the NFL. Kevin Byard's an INT machine and Adoree Jackson has had an excellent camp. Also, they'll be seeing a mix of 3-4/4-3 up front. Good test prepping for the Steelers in Week 3.

When asked his thoughts on Jameis Winston's suspension, Tony Dungy said, "He's a great leader on the field, he's a great leader in the locker room, he's a great leader when he's here, and now he's gotta take it on his shoulders to lead off the field and away from the building as well. I'm praying he'll do that."

Hall of Fame coach Tony Dungy spoke to Bucs players before practice today. He told them it wasn't about the talent in the room — although that's certainly important — it's about togetherness. He said talent-wise, his Colts Super Bowl team was only fourth or fifth. "It wasn't the most talented, but it was the most together."

Lorenzo Holloway, a participant of the USAA Salute to Service Boot Camp, tries to go one-one-one with Mike Evans on a deep pass from Jameis Winston. Holloway, who got a running start, said, "I swear I tripped." Jameis told him after, "Don't worry, Mike does that to everybody."

Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans visits with participants of the USAA Salute to Service Boot Camp Tuesday. This is the second year the Bucs have hosted the event. Approximately 50 participants are here for a combine-style workout.

Head coach Dirk Koetter said that Carlton Davis' ankle injury is nothing serious. He wasn't the only player held out of Tuesday's practice, but given that the Bucs are already without Vernon Hargreaves, it's something to monitor.

Bucs rookie cornerback Carlton Davis has his left ankle wrapped and isn't practicing today. He appears to be walking fine but we'll have more details from head coach Dirk Koetter on the severity of it.

Bucs kicker Chandler Catanzaro tells me he "feels fine" after those two preseason misses and has made 95 percent of his kicks between the offseason program, camp and preseason. The Bucs have gone through eight kickers since 2009, tied with the Bills, Bengals and Eagles for most in the NFL in that span.

A minor skirmish broke out towards the end of practice at Bucs camp. Head coach Dirk Koetter made everyone run gassers as a result. His policy will remain in place heading into joint practices with the Titans — fight and you will get kicked out.

On Tuesday at 1 p.m., the Bucs will hold a press conference highlighting their soon-to-be newest Buccaneer Ring of Honor member, Tony Dungy.

The Bucs have officially been awarded cornerback De'Vante Harris off waivers. To make room for him, they have waived cornerback Aaron Davis. Harris had been with the Saints the last two seasons and played in 21 career games with one start, with most of his work coming on special teams last year as he had some issues in coverage.

After three touchdown drives in Friday night's preseason opener, this little guy, Evan, thinks Cameron Brate and his Bucs teammates deserve the day off, even if Dirk Koetter said they started off a little sluggish in Saturday's practice.
