Antonio Bryant May Not Play At Buffalo

September 18th, 2009

Disturbing news to start the morning. Joe has read, courtesy of Woody Cummings of the Tampa Tribune, that Antonio Bryant is questionable for the Bucs game at Buffalo because he has had a setback from his knee surgery performed during training camp.

Bryant did not participate in the team’s workout at One Buc Place on Thursday and his chances of playing Sunday at Buffalo are now in question.

“I’m not in the business of anticipation,” Coach Raheem Morris said when asked if Bryant would be ready for Sunday’s game. “I’m in the business of guys showing up for work and playing.”

Bryant had arthroscopic surgery in early August to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee and left the season-opening game against Dallas early because of knee fatigue. Bryant said after that game he expected to play at Buffalo.

Gulp. Joe is crossing his fingers that Bryant makes it on the field at Buffalo. With Jeff Faine out, the Bucs need all the help they can muster to keep pressure off of the offensive line, specifically during the run game. Bryant at least keeps defenses honest.
