Nicks Guarantees Start Week 1

July 28th, 2013

There was much angst last week when the Bucs reported for training camp and hulking left guard Carl Nicks was spotted with his injured toe “heavily bandaged.”

Bucs fans nearly freaked. Nicks barely made it to midseason last year as he played most of the time with an uglier than ugly turf toe until the pain was simply too much for him to bear.

Nicks has been limited in training camp thus far, largely on the orders of Bucs coach Greg Schiano, largely as a precautionary measure. Nicks is a veteran and an All-Pro, so Schiano and the coaching staff trust that Nicks knows how to get himself ready as he is eased back into workouts.

Last night after the Bucs’ night practice at the Stadium on Dale Mabry Highway, Nicks said he will be in the starting lineup when the Bucs travel to the New Jersey Swamplands to face the Jets.

“Guaranteed,” Nicks said.

So there you have it: No need to fret about Nicks or his toe. Nicks will be ready to rock and roll come September.

    Sorry to say this, but these are often nagging injuries that are debilitating in the long term.
    Hope he’s really 100%.

    The only thing that concerns me with Nicks is I remember seeing te injury and one report came from a doctor saying it could be an injury that bothers/nabs him the rest of his football career.

    People laugh at toe injures, but they can be the most annoying. Joseph’s patella tendon injury is another to watch. Makes ACL injuries look easier to recover from (ask caddy).

    I’m not concerned with the oline as much. Especially the depth and the coaching. Bostad had us ranked as a top 15 o-line without Joseph and Nicks and having Dotson come in and start at RT and moving guys around. I think the depth is there this year. Meredith, Carimi, Larsen are solid back ups

    Biff Barker, well-said. My thought was that Nicks started 2012 also–will this be an aborted season too??
