They're listed on the injury report as doubtful, which ostensibly leaves the door open to playing.
But don't bet on WR D.J. Hackett (knee) or C Ryan Kalil (ankle) playing tomorrow in Tampa Bay. They didn't make the trip, staying home to get treatment. That greatly decreases the chance they'll play against the Bucs.

They'd like to have Kalil out there, but it's no emergency. Backup Geoff Hangartner has actually started more games at center than the starter (15-6) and has more experience snapping to QB Jake Delhomme (12-5).
Hackett's going to miss another few weeks with a sprained MCL, opening the door for Dwayne Jarrett to give him the Wally Pipp treatment.
