Schiano Says Meredith Return Was “Miraculous”November 19th, 2012
The status of backup right tackle turned starting right guard Javon Meredith was very much in doubt for Sunday, as Meredith was on crutches during the week.
News flash: crutches + four days of rehab rarely equals a starting guard.
Today, Greg Schiano called Meredith’s return yesterday “miraclous” and said video of his ankle injury in practice last week was heinous and not encouraging at all.
As for Donald Penn, who was injured during the game but retunred, Schiano said Penn’s “a tough guy” and should not be slowed down.
Joe definitely had a moment of angst when Penn was on the ground in pain yesterday. That’s one of the rarest sights in Bucs history. Penn’s consecutive starts streak stands at 86 games.
