Bad Muscles

August 9th, 2010

Various reports from the Bucs press corps on Twitter say Aqib Talib has a “tweaked” groin pull and some have suggested he is day-to-day (all together now: aren’t we all?).

This may be the least of the Bucs’ concerns with bad muscles. Talib could sit out most of the rest of training camp and Joe would bet a cold adult beverage Talib will be just fine when the Bucs open the season against the Browns.

Brian Price may be another matter.

The rookie defensive tackle from UCLA, who tore about training camp like a man possessed in the first few days, has been shelved due to a bad hamstring that has bothered him since this spring. It’s not a stretch (bad pun) to believe this may be a recurring issue for the season.

Putting Price on the sidelines for a few practices, or weeks, won’t help until that hamstring is fully recovered.

Talib will be fine. Price, maybe not so much.

    Yup, losing Price for any amount of time would be really bad

    I say limit Price under September. I’d rather him get healthy and lose the preseason time than risk it and be hobbled the whole year.

    That stinks.

    Bench him. Let him heal.

    It sucks that he’s injured, but we DO have McCoy and Miller.

    Yes we do, but you need a three tackle rotation. And Sims and Moore ain’t striking fear in anyones heart!
