Bucs chief operating officer Brian Ford told me that the NFL's ban on pyrotechnics will not affect the firing of the cannons. He explained that the ban is on the field. "It does not affect the pirate ship," he said. So cannons will still fire.

Bucs coach Bruce Arians has ruled out Devin White, Jamel Dean, Blaine Gabbert and Devante Bond for Sunday against the Giants. That's White in between Deone Bucannon and Lavonte David. Tough to see, but he's got a bulky brace on his left knee.

Adventures in babysitting with Bruce Arians! The Bucs head coach said watching Ronde and Tiki Barber as youngsters was his first experience with young children. He was roommates with their father James at Virginia Tech.

Good news to see that Shaq Barrett, Carl Nassib and Beau Allen were all full participation in Thursday's practice. Still no Devin White or Jamel Dean.

Bucs coach Bruce Arians said they had their best practice this week since he's been here. "That was the whole point coming into this week – we can't relax now just because we won a ball game. It's just one game."

Several new names appearing on the Bucs' injury report this week, including Jameis Winston (foot). Shaq Barrett is dealing with a groin injury. Coach Bruce Arians said Beau Allen had an issue with the heat today.

No Devin White (knee) this morning at Bucs practice and Jamel Dean (No. 35, lower leg) is on the sideline. Devante Bond isn't practicing either. Bruce Arians didn't officially rule White out for the Giants game, but there is a strong chance he misses some time. It'd be better to rest him up this week and try to have him ready for the Rams the following week. His backup, Kevin Minter, also had a solid performance against the Panthers last week.

I'm told Noah Spence signed his contract with the Redskins this morning. They'll have to make a corresponding move to meet the 53-man roster requirement.

Bucs outside linebacker Shaq Barrett has been named NFC Defensive Player of the Week after his three-sack performance against the Panthers. He's the first Bucs player to receive the honor since 2015. "That's been a dream of mine since growing up, Barrett said. "I always played the game and created a player on the game, always tried to win the honors, and I finally got it in real life, so it's most definitely a dream come true."

Source tells me that the Redskins are planning to sign former Bucs outside linebacker Noah Spence tomorrow. Spence worked out for them last week. He also worked out for the Bears today, along with the Bills two weeks ago.

Bucs coach Bruce Arians on players asking their teams for trades: "We don't have anybody like that...The teams I've been on, we've never had those types of things. That seems to be ‘vogue' all of a sudden. I hope it changes," Arians said. I asked how he feels about players using social media to push that process. "I'm not a fan of it."

Bucs cornerback Vernon Hargreaves called Saquon Barkley "the best I've ever seen." He said, "His vision — you turn the film on and it's like, ‘OK he's bottled up, OK he's not bottled up, OK he's bottled up, OK, touchdown — it's ridiculous." Hargreaves didn't get to face him when the Bucs were in New York last year — he was on IR then with a shoulder injury.

Bucs coach Bruce Arians on what last week's road win did for them: "I think it was big for their confidence. I had the confidence all along. It really depends on them, the locker room. I think their confidence is pretty high right now. We talked about, 'We have to practice the same this week after a win as we did after a loss.' The sense of urgency can't leave."

Jamel Dean (lower leg) isn't on the field with the cornerbacks today. No sign of linebacker Devin White (knee) either. Dean left Thursday night's game in a boot (X-rays were negative for fractures). White has a sprained MCL.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bucs have signed former Seahawks wide receiver Amara Darboh to their practice squad and have released Emanuel Hall, team announced. Darboh was a third-round pick in 2017 out of Michigan and played in 16 career games with Seattle.

This Just In  

Bucs coach Bruce Arians said rookie linebacker Devin White has a Grade 1 MCL sprain in his left knee and will be "day to day." White has not been ruled out for Week 3 against the Giants, but there is the possibility he misses a game or two. He suffered the injury in the first quarter of Thursday's win over the Panthers, left the game and did not return.
