Jeff Tedford Had Medical ProcedureAugust 25th, 2014
Bucs coach Lovie Smith announced in his post-practice news conference that offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford was unavailable due to a medical procedure.
Lovie did not provide further details other than to say that Tedford is resting comfortably and is expected back with the team.
Likely due to HIPAA federal laws protecting confidentiality of medical information, the Bucs wouldn’t elaborate on Tedford’s issue.
When Tedford returns is uncertain, Lovie said, though the head coach seemed to imply Tedford would only be away for a matter of days.
In Tedford’s absence, Lovie said the offensive coaching staff “will come together” to ensure all is smooth on the offensive side of the ball.
Tedford, Lovie said, “Should be OK.”
