Cornerback Cortland Finnegan missed a third consecutive day of practice Friday because of a thigh injury and was listed as questionable for the Rams' game Sunday in Tampa Bay.

Finnegan missed two days of practice last week because of an ankle injury but played in the 36-22 loss to Minnesota.

His potential absence could be crritical against the Buccaneers, who have a potent passing attack with receivers Vincent Jackson (1,226 receiving yards) and Mike Williams (799) and tight end Dallas Clark (402).

Running back Steven Jackson (illness) was limited but listed as probable.

Others listed as probable who participated in the full practice were LB James Laurinaitis (back), C Scott Wells (knee), CB Bradley Fletcher (illness) and DE Robert Quinn (illness).
