Jeremy Trueblood Not PracticingSeptember 13th, 2012
The Bucs offensive line is thin, thanks to the season-ending injury to Pro Bowl right guard Davin Joseph suffered in the preseason.
But word comes out of One Buc Palace that his linemate on the right side, tackle Jeremy Trueblood, is not practicing, per WDAE-AM 620 Bucs beat reporter Tom Krasniqi.
@TKras: #Bucs RT Jeremy Trueblood riding the bike today and not taking part in team drills…His left leg was wrapped
This is not good news in the least. Is Trueblood the best right tackle in the league? No. But there is a reason he is starting.
Now, it’s very possible that the Bucs could be facing the most fierce defensive front line with backups starting at both right guard and right tackle.
This is not something the Bucs want nor need.
UPDATE: Rick Brown of the Lakeland Ledger reports that not only does Trueblood have a sleeve on his leg, he was limping.
