BAGSHOT, England -- Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back LeGarrette Blount will not play against the Chicago Bears in London on Sunday, coach Raheem Morris said Friday.

Morris ruled out Blount again after he missed practice all week in London.

Blount took a hit on his left knee in a Week 5 loss to the San Francisco 49ers and missed the win over the New Orleans Saints.

Center Jeff Faine is doubtful after missing practice this week with an arm injury, Morris said. Receiver Sammie Stroughter will be a game-time decision.

The Bucs and Bears play at Wembley Stadium in the fifth straight annual overseas game in the British capital.
