Will Gholston Is HurtingAugust 18th, 2014
Joe’s partners at WDAE-AM 620 are reporting that Gholston has an arm in a sling today.
Joe will update with more information if Lovie Smith clarifies Gholston’s ailment this afternoon. In preseason, teams don’t have to declare injuries and their severity. That’s required
for gambling purposes during the regular season. (Update: Lovie said Gholston’s injury shouldn’t last until the regular season.)
Injuries keep piling up for Tampa Bay; the biggest is rookie running back Charles Smith being lost for at least three months with ankle surgery. Rashaan Melvin joins his fellow cornerbacks Alterraun Verner and Mike Jenkins on the shelf, and running back Mike James had some sort of shoulder injury on Saturday. Defensive linemen Da’Quan Bowers and Steven Means have bad groins.
