Buccaneers CB Carlton Davis (toe) likely out against Bears


TAMPA, Fla. — Tampa Bay Buccaneers top cornerback Carlton Davis will “probably” miss Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears due to a toe injury, coach Todd Bowles told reporters Friday.

Davis, Tampa Bay’s most experienced cornerback, has not practiced all week. With Davis likely out, second-year cornerback Zyon McCollum will step into Davis’ role.

Bowles did say he is hopeful that starting nickelback Christian Izien, a rookie who had a touchdown-saving interception in last week’s 20-17 win at the Minnesota Vikings, can play Sunday. Izien is in the concussion protocol and Bowles said he still had some tests to clear, but he returned to practice in a limited capacity Thursday.
