Benn’s Health Still Up In The AirApril 12th, 2011
Good health seems to be flowing freely among Bucs seriously injured last season, including Gerald McCoy, Brian Price, Cody Grimm and (gasp) Aqib Talib, and more.
Speaking yesterday on the Ron and Ian Show, on WDAE-AM 620, Bucs rockstar general manager Mark Dominik said Arrelious Benn is the lone banged up Buccaneer who’s status is questionable for 2011.
“He’s really the only guy that we’re mainly concerned about,” said Dominik, who added that Benn was progressing well from his ACL tear.
Benn’s knee went down in late December. To expect him to be 100 percent for opening day is like Joe hoping for Rachel Watson to invite him to share a bubble bath at the Clearwater Beach Hilton — highly unlikely.
Joe wonders whether wide receiver is the area where Dominik will shun his distaste for free agency and snatch a little insurance for Benn. Leaving Josh Freeman short of weapons should not be an option.
