Clifton Smith Expected In LondonOctober 23rd, 2009
Though he’s still feeling the effects of his assault at the hands of dirty backup cornerback Dante Wesley, Bucs return specialist Clifton Smith expects to make the trip to London. That’s the word from Stephen Holder of the St. Petersburg Times, who is already in London.
The Bucs left Tampa International Airport earlier this morning for this weekend’s game in England.
It’s expected that all players will make the trip, including RB Clifton Smith, who is trying to get over a concussion he sustained last Sunday.
Good guy Backwards Hat, aka Rick Brown of the Lakeland Ledger, documented that Smith may not be fully over his brutal hit from cheapshot artist Wesley.
“He said he suffered from some headaches in the days following the hit but is good to go now.
“It’s more of a precaution (keeping him out of practice),” Smith said. “The trainers are doing a good job of handling it. I’m going to go with whatever they say.”
Joe’s guess is that Smith won’t suit up for the Bucs, but the team didn’t want to leave Smith behind and miss a mini paid work/vacation trip overseas.
