100 Degree Heat Index For TodayJuly 28th, 2014
There’s a reason Buccaneers have been getting super close to fans attending training camp. There was about 20 inches of shade on the practice fields of One Buc Palace yesterday, and defensive players managed to find it.
Where the open fields met the fan bleachers created that long sliver of shade.
During offense-vs.-defense work, most of the first-team defense lined up in that area to catch a quick break from the searing afternoon heat. Mason Foster seemed to enjoy the proximity to fans as he stood leaning on a pole listening to praise for his interception of Josh McCown.
Per Weather.com, the swelter will be full force today. The forecast heat index is to hit 100 degrees during the 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. practice.
Of course, Joe will be out there sweating his footballs off and providing you all kinds of meaty goodies from practice. Stick with Joe throughout the day and night.
