With Tender Hamstring, Price Impresses AllJuly 31st, 2010
As Joe wrote earlier, Brian Price clearly was getting extra attention from Raheem The Dream at today’s morning practice.
And Joe was watching as defensive line coach Todd Wash leaned on Price a little bit and made him go through an extra rep on a sled drill.
Price later busted up a run play that had Raheem The Dream ready to chest bump, and the rookie looked quick.
It seems the Bucs coaches and players took notice, too, per the recent Twitter musings of eye-RAH! Kaufman, of The Tampa Tribune.
Ira: Rookie DT Brian Price says he still isn’t fully over his hamstring problems, but he certainly impressed teammates and coaches Saturday.
Joe winces at the thought of Price battling a hamstring injury on Aug. 1. The Bucs need him or Gerald McCoy to have a strong season if they want to progress on defense. That’s a tough chore for any rookie, and the hammy won’t make it easier.
