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.

Bucs fan DJ Myers, 17, fights back tears as he meets his hero, DeSean Jackson, Saturday. One year ago, Myers was involved in a football accident that left him paralyzed. He said Jackson's encouragement helped motivate him to get out of bed and to do his therapy. "It really touched my heart," Myers said.

Bucs' Jackson meets, encourages paralyzed fan

After connecting with paralyzed teen D.J. Myers while he was recovering from a spinal injury, Bucs wide receiver DeSean Jackson finally got to meet the 17-year-old on Saturday.

What did Bucs head coach Dirk Koetter think of running back Ronald Jones' performance in his first preseason game? "I thought [he] was pretty average," Koetter said. "I think he was maybe pushing it a little bit. I thought he lined up too deep in the backfield a couple of times." Koetter did point out that he had three really nice plays in pass protection.

In addition to signing Colin Jeter and Amari Coleman, the Bucs have signed cornerback Aaron Davis. Defensive end Kiante Anderson and tight end Jason Reese have been waived and tight end Donnie Ernsberger has been waived (injured).

When asked about the national anthem, Bucs head coach Dirk Koetter, who has been a supporter of free speech, said, "We're waiting. I think it's really important that we see what the league decides in conjunction with the [NFL] Players Association. That's what I've been talking to the guys about. It's a very important issue. Obviously around the league last night there were some things that happened. There's going to be something more said. Until then, we're just trying to go out there and do the best we can. You know our stance on it, me personally as well as the club. We'll hope that they get to a resolution quickly here."

Source tells me that the Bucs are signing former LSU tight end Colin Jeter. Had a workout with them today. He'd been with the Colts previously.

Source tells me that the Bucs are signing cornerback Amari Coleman, who was just waived by the Lions. An undrafted free agent out of Central Michigan, Coleman was a three-year starter and had three picks his final season. He'll provide depth while Vernon Hargreaves is on the mend.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Bucs head coach Dirk Koetter said that Vernon Hargreaves' groin injury will keep him out for a bit but he doesn't believe he'll miss any regular-season games. Hargreaves was competing for a starting spot outside and also the nickel role. Ryan Smith, Carton Davis and M.J. Stewart could all replace him.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bucs have multiple kickers in today for a workout — Nick Rose, Joey Slye and Drew Brown (first reported by the Tampa Bay Times). A source tells me that this had been in the works since Monday (when the Bucs waived kicker Trevor Moore) and isn't related to Chandler Catanzaro's two missed kicks Thursday night.

Tannehill starts fast in return; Dolphins lose to Bucs 26-24

Ryan Tannehill completed passes on the first four plays in his return from two serious injuries to his left knee, sparking a 40-yard drive that ended with a missed field goal in his only series, and the Miami Dolphins lost their exhibition opener to...

After not missing a single extra point attempt all last year, kicker Chandler Catanzaro missed a PAT in the Bucs' preseason opener against the Dolphins. A 53-yard attempt in the fourth quarter also sailed wide right, but he did manage to make 26 and 27 yarders. He's been very consistent in practice, but given that the Bucs have had a revolving door at the position — including three kickers last year — it's concerning.
