Nicks Returns To Live Action “Little By Little”July 31st, 2013
The human armoire, Carl Nicks, the manbeast of manbeasts on the Bucs’ offensive line, got his first taste of serious action at practice today. Nicks is working his way back from offseason toe surgery to repair a mangled turf toe that rivaled the planet Uranus in size.
Greg Schiano said after practice it was part of the “little-by-little” process of preparing Nicks for opening day.
This is a great sign and came as a bit of a surprise to Joe. Nicks guaranteed earlier he’d be ready for Week 1, and it feels like a lock after seeing him in pads and throwing his body around — sans limp.
