Gameday Tampa Bay

August 28th, 2008

Buccaneers at Texans
Preseason Game No. 4

Kickoff: Thursday, 8 p.m.
TV: WFLA Channel 8 (Game will be rebroadcast on the NFL Network at 9 a.m. Friday).
Radio: Buccaneers Radio Network (in Tampa WFUS-FM, 103.5 and WDAE-AM, 620); Sirius Channel 158.
Weather: The game is played in a godless dome with a constant temperature of 72. If Bucs fans travel to Houston, predicts temperatures outside the sterile Reliant Stadium to be in the mid-80s under partly cloudy skies.
Odds: From, Pick ’em.

Outlook: This will be the last dress rehearsal for several players as all NFL teams have to whittle their rosters down to 53 players. This is part of the reason why the Bucs starters will see limited playing time. The other reason is no team can afford to have starters hurt in such a worthless game.

Of particular interest will be the play of defensive end Jimmy Wilkerson either has locked up a roster spot or is teetering on the brink of being released. Given the Bucs moves yesterday wheeling and dealing defensive ends, it may be the latter.
