Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Bucs cornerback Javien Elliott picks off Jameis Winston during 7-on-7s. It's becoming a pretty tough competition between him and Robert McClain for that nickelback spot.

Cornerback Brent Grimes goes through some ball drills with defensive backs coach Jon Hoke on the sidelines. Appeared to be fine cutting and backpedaling. He's practicing today, but Mike Evans, J.R. Sweezy and Kwon Alexander are not.

Safety Chris Conte said the Bucs defense can "be as good as we want to be." He said this year's training camp hasn't been much different than in previous years. He's just more comfortable. "Having a little bit of a head start, being able to make those mistakes last year and learn from them, moving forward with this training camp, you know what to look for. You know what some of the weaknesses are with the defense and what you have to be ready for. It's a larger comfort level."

Rookie report: With Kwon Alexander out today with a hamstring injury and Adarius Glanton working with the first-team offense, MIKE and Hard Knocks favorite Riley Bullough got to work with the second-team defense. Head coach Dirk Koetter admitted today though, "He's fighting a number's battle." Kendell Beckwith continues to work with the first-team defense at SAM linebacker while Devante Bond recovers from a left knee injury.

With Kwon Alexander not practicing Tuesday, Adarius Glanton was getting reps with the first-team defense. Glanton has been working as the backup at both middle and weakside linebacker. He led the Bucs with six tackles, a sack and two tackles for a loss last week against Jacksonville.

Injury update: Bucs cornerback Brent Grimes was back practicing today after missing the last week with a shin laceration. He still had a sleeve on his leg and wasn't participating in team periods -- just position drills. He stayed on the field for several minutes after to continue working. Head coach Dirk Koetter said Sunday that Grimes was "doubtful" for the third preseason game.

Bucs safety Keith Tandy was the last player off the field today. Here, he's working with the jugs machine to improve his ball skills. Jameis Winston also spent a good 30 minutes after practice working on red zone with tight ends Cameron Brate and Alan Cross.

Bucs linebacker Kwon Alexander did not practice today. He tweaked his hamstring in practice Sunday but when I spoke to him right after, he didn't think it was anything serious.

Bucs guard J.R. Sweezy sat out practice today. Sweezy told me today was a "maintenance day" and he's fine.
