Collins’ Return Is Expected

Joe’s got the full injury report

When you’re listed as “probable” on an official NFL Friday injury report, then that means you’re playing Sunday unless you get mixed up with dangerous women or have an accident.

Big money Bucs left tackle Anthony Collins, who missed the last two games, got that label today.

Joe’s friends at WDAE-AM 620 did a great job typing up the current injury report.

Anthony Collins – Foot – FULL PARTICIPATION (Probable)
Demar Dotson – Neck – FULL PARTICIPATION (Probable)
Michael Johnson – Hand – FULL PARTICIPATION (Questionable)
Doug Martin – Ankle – Limited Participation (OUT)
Josh McCown – Back – FULL PARTICIPATION (Probable)
Gerald McCoy – Groin – FULL PARTICIPATION  (Probable)
Luke Stocker – Hip – FULL PARTICIPATION (Questionable)
Alterraun Verner – Hamstring – Limited Participation (Questionable)

The Verner situation is troubling. You can’t have a shaky hamstring and over Desean Jackson. Frankly, it’s hard to cover any legitimate NFL receiver in that condition.

The Bucs were burned Sunday in Verner’s absence, just as they were against Baltimore when Johnthan Banks was out with a neck injury.

Collins should get a workout from Redskins edge rusher Jason Hatcher (four sacks), who also has been a disappointing big money acquisition.

    lame blame game

    The wild card this weekend just might be Raheem. He knows our defensive coverage scheme inside out and how to beat it too.

  4. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Raheem has been the cause of enough of our losses….lets hope we create some nightmares for him with our passing game…

    As for Collins….he’ll be back & needs to ride the pine….

  5. BucFan20 Says:

    Michael Johnson. In game. Absent! No question.

  6. ElioT Says:

    What are the chances that BJ Biggers get’s a pick-6 in this game?


    Go Sucs!

  7. DallasBuc Says:

    That means it is “probable” that he is going to give up 5 sacks, rack up 70 penalty yards and cry like a McCown when it’s all over. It is also “probable” that LovieDovie will defend this one-of-many mistakes because he can do no wrong. I like probability!

  8. billy buckaroo Says:

    I see the rookie Pamphile is in there now and then at left tackle.
    Anyone know how he is doing?

  9. Ray Rice Says:

    Probable as in probable to commit a holding penalty inside the opponents redzone Sunday. Or probable to get beat for a sack fumble. Or probable to only show emotion in the locker room after the loss Sunday.

    @biff barker

    Seriously dude can you think of any coach that doesn’t know the Tampa two inside out at this point? There are no surprises about this coverage which is why the front 4 has to wake up
