(CBS) After missing four consecutive games with a chest injury, wide receiver Earl Bennett had full participation in all three practices this week and is listed as probable for Sunday’s game in London.

Still, it is unsure if Bennett will play Sunday.

“He is getting better every day,” head coach Lovie Smith said. “I know I have said that. He has been getting better each day. Don’t know if he is ready to go yet but he had a good practice (Thursday) and he’s making a lot of improvement. We’re close, I’ll say that.”

Tight end Kellen Davis (elbow), wide receiver Devin Hester (chest),safety Anthony Walters, and safety Major Wright (hip) are also listed as probable.

Defensive tackle Matt Toeaina (knee) and offensive tackle Gabe Carimi (knee) are out for Sunday’s game in London.

For the Bucs, running back LeGarrett Blount is listed as doubtful.

Defensive end Michael Bennett and linebacker Mason Foster are probable, while defensive tackle Gerald McCoy and tight end Luke Stocker are questionable.

Center Jeff Faine and wide receiver Sammie Stroughter are out.
