Stroughter To Have Surgery; Price Day-To-Day

September 12th, 2011

A local radio host suggests Price came back too soon

Relatively speaking, there was good news today on injured Sammie Stroughter and Brian Price.

Yesterday, Stroughter left The C.I.T.S. on crutches with a boot on his left foot and Price reportedly had a hamstring injury, extra alarming considering his serious offseason hamstring/pelvis surgery.

Raheem Morris didn’t give any indication that either injury was season-ending during his afternoon news conference Monday. 

“Stroughter will have a small surgery tomorrow,” Raheem said. “Not major. He will be out a few weeks.”

Raheem said Price was day-to-day and singled out his strong play at nose tackle in limited snaps.

Today, WDAE-AM 620 host Ian Beckles questioned Price even being on the field against Detroit. “They put too much stock in a player they knew wasn’t healthy,” Beckles said.  

Joe really can’t go there with Price. He’s been back from the lockout for 6+ weeks, and he clearly came out healthy after playing loads of snap against Washington in the final preseason game. Price has proven he can contribute, and if his doctors are on board, then there’s no reason for him to sit.

    Beckles should shut up. He’s clueless. And his lil campaign against Ruud- stirring up the uninformed, has really hurt this team this year.his show sucks, and hopefully is getting canceled soon.


    Joe, you do realize that your new “advertise here” banner covers up the headline of your most recent post?

  3. Garv Says:

    Beckles is NOT an insider, does NOT have access to the team or it’s practice and is a bitter and bad joke.
    That morning show is juvenile and I highly doubt anyone over the age of 25 takes it for anything more than it is. A time killing pretender to sports reporting?
    Yes, pretty much. Not even funny anymore and hopefully WDAE will come to it’s senses and cancelled the nonsense that is that “show.”

    Where was Frank Okam?

  5. Espo Says:

    Funny how much you bash Beckles when he just happened to be correct. Hope Price’s injury isn’t serious though.

    On the Stroughter situation, all I have to say is:


  6. Blubber Price Says:

    Injuries and pulled muscles happen when you’re fat and out of shape . Is anyone really suprised tubby went down already besides Joe and his man-crush bias ??

  7. Dan Says:

    hey your the only one whining about his weight. everyone else understands the fact he was able to have real impact on this game after his injury is amazing…. of course he is overweight, have you tried no walking for six months?… still he has more talent overweight than miller has… he just needs to gain the conditioning to sustain the level of play for more than a quarter



    What’s funny is you clamoring for a practice squad player….

  9. bucfever4o Says:

    Ian, you are a hater, plain and simple. You can’t take a photo without looking all hard and p’od. what’s up with that? You latch on to a player and try to psychoanalyze everything he does because you’re so afraid to be wrong, that it interferes with the ability to like the player you’re bashing, in this case, or this year rather, it’s #93, you don’t think he’s a good player, so you’re going to tell everyone that you watched the game 3 times, and because you are a former player, that you would know a little more than the average listener, yea I get it, but in the meantime, inside you are hoping Gerald McCoy flops on his face, otherwise you come out of this looking like you are human, and we all know that you feel like you’re beyond human sometimes, what with all your pro bowls and all…

  10. espo Says:

    Because practice squad players never amount to anything?

  11. Nate Says:

    its sad when our best interior dline probably wont be able to play a full game off football…

  12. Mauha Deeb Says:

    @HireGregOlsen I know, right? Like, who recently has ever made an impact in the NFL and started on a practice squad?(Blount)

  13. HIRE GREG OLSON! Says:

    Blount wasn’t on a practice squad. Tennessee tried to sneak him on theirs, but we signed him, making him part of our 53-man active roster. Plus, Blount is a special case. He wouldn’t have gone undrafted if not for that punch.

    But nice try, morons…

  14. HIRE GREG OLSON! Says:

    You don’t get promoted from practice squad to 3rd on the WR depth chart. There are about 4 guys in front of him. Yeah, he might get activated, but he’s not going into the slot right away. Use your brain.

  15. Mauha Deeb Says:

    @HireGreg Blount was on a practice squad guy. So was Briscoe. Doesn’t matter how you try to dumb it down.

    This is only the recent Bucs I’m trying to cover. You and I both know there are hundreds of other awesome pickups from practice squads. And I am damn sure there are a couple more that were Bucs too.

    Quit trying to argue. You know you were wrong for posting that.

  16. Macabee Says:

    @Mauha, Here’s what my research revealed. Blount was never on a practice squad, he was waived by the Titans and before he cleared waivers, the Bucs claimed him and he went directly to the 53 man roster. Briscoe was never on a practice squad either, that is until he got to the Bucs. Briscoe was waived by the Bengals and unlike Blount, he cleared waivers. At which point he became a free agent. The Bengals and the Bucs made offers to join their respective practice squads, but the Bucs won by offering Briscoe the rookie minimum salary. The Bengals complained about this, but it was entirely legal under the rules, though not usually done. The Bucs then placed Briscoe on their practice squad. Hopes this helps!

  17. Mauha Deeb Says:

    @Macabee So, they are both practice squad guys. Thank you for reinforcing my words.

  18. Mauha Deeb Says:

    @Macabee for whatever reason the site refreshed on me and posted my comment. Perhaps I hit enter. Either way I wasn’t finished. But screw it, I simply don’t care anymore, at all.

  19. Capt.Tim Says:

    The important thing is that they are both alright. Glad to hear it for Price- he’s been thru enough! Sammy back in 2-3 weeks is also good news

    Any report on the injury to “stone hand Luke”?
    It was obvious the way he dropped that TD, that his hands were made of stone!! Poor kid! Any medical treatment for that?

  20. HIRE GREG OLSON! Says:

    So I was right. Exactly. No wonder you “don’t care anymore”
