Stovall Return Imminent

September 16th, 2010

Joe’s excited to see Maurice Stovall back on the field. It’s likely to happen on Sunday.

Now Stovall is hardly an upper echelon receiver, but among the Bucs’ wideouts he’s the elder statesman. And he did catch more balls from Josh Freeman last year than any other wide receiver.

Today, Raheem Morris said Stovall is looking good and he might activate five receivers for the Panthers game, so says the Bucs Twitter feed.

WR Maurice Stovall (ankle) looks a lot better this week, coach says, and the team could keep more than 4 WRs active this week.

Considering Kareem Huggins’ injury, it’s even more likely the Bucs will want Stovall in the game and available on special teams. Regardless, they could use more options for Freeman.

    Now Stroughter can play slot, position he specializes in.

    Good. It will be nice to see Stovall back on the field. He’s not great, but he definitely has talent and skill. Plus Josh seems to like going to him in tough situations.

    good to hear u coming back Stovall …last week the haters wanted to cut you..what a joke..

    He’s gone if they get a decent trade offer. We need to move on with the young guns and get them some experience.

    I agree Dew, our receivers from week one were doing great, Free just missed them a few times, or the score would have been lopsided. I say start the same ones we did against Cleveland, and have Stovall ready, just in case.

    My hope for Stovall is that,just once, he could stay healthy. Poor guy has had no luck with that

    CapTim, Keeping him off special teams so much, might help that injury bug.
