Two key players for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are expected to return to the lineup soon.

After being placed on injured reserve, cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting (elbow) and wide receiver Scotty Miller (toe) have been “designated to return.” According to Joey Knight of The Tampa Bay Times, the two players will have a 21-day window to practice without counting against the 53-man roster.

“The Buccaneers have designated WR Scotty Miller (turf toe) and CB Sean Murphy-Bunting (elbow) as “returned to practice,” allowing them to participate without counting against the 53-man roster for the next 21 days,” according to Knight. “Both could be activated in time for the game against WFT on November 14th.”

Murphy-Bunting has been out since Week 1 due to an elbow injury he sustained against the Dallas Cowboys. Miller’s toe injury occurred after the Buccaneers’ loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 3 of the regular season.

Week 9 will be a bye week for the Buccaneers before they face the Washington Football Team in Week 10.
