The Bucs’ Newly Wounded

July 28th, 2013

Erik Lorig is among the sidelined Bucs

Every Bucs fan knows about the high-profile rehabilitations of Bucs stars like Davin Joseph, Carl Nicks and The Boy Wonder.

But what about other injuries in camp? The artist formerly known as Backwards Hat, aka Lakeland Ledger Bucs beat writer Rick Brown, has compiled the latest on the Bucs’ wounded in his notes from Sunday’s practice at One Buc Palace. Brown wrote a bit about Ahmad Black’s minor ankle tweak and listed the rest.

During practice, he was joined on the sidelines with defensive end William Gholston (hamstring), Gary Gibson (ankle), fullback Erik Lorig (calf), tight end Luke Stocker (calf), tight end Zach Miller (hamstring), defensive end Steven Means (Achilles strain), Danny Gorrer (groin) and Markus White (foot). Schiano said he expects some of these players to return this week.

Schiano was clear to media that none of these injuries are considered serious. However, Joe knows plenty of injuries linger and cost guys jobs. Just ask Black, who had an ankle issue in 2011 training camp. He was cut before being re-signed to the Bucs’ practice squad soon after.

    So far sounds like minor stuff, hope it stays that way.

    Not good for our rookie DE’s. Now is the time to earn a roster spot, not sit in the tub.
