“A Few” Wounded Buccaneers?

July 29th, 2015

lovie 1029Last night, following Jason Licht’s Town Hall event on WDAE-AM 620, a question was posed to the general manager about whether the entire roster would be healthy and ready to play football on Saturday when training camp begins.

Licht did not say, “Yes.”

What Licht did say was, “There may be a few [unable to practice Saturday], but we’re not going to release that right now. Overall, we’re excited about the health.”

So who’s hurt?

Joe asked rookie wide receiver Kenny Bell early Tuesday about the injury that kept him out of several spring practices. Bell told Joe it was a hamstring issue that he finished rehabbing this summer in Nebraska. Bell labeled himself 100 percent.

Joe hopes all the Bucs are healthy, but Licht’s answer was unsettling. Joe can only speculate — and pray the health issues aren’t among the men tasked with protecting Jameis Winston, America’s Quarterback.

    Heard the rumor that ASJ was bowling with the rookies and suffered an ankle injury

  2. Stanglassman Says:

    Safety Derrick Wells is one of them.

  3. Greg Says:

    Heres a question…Why is Jake Long not visiting Tampa? Do we really believe we have 4 better tackles on the roster? Wake up Jason Lite and Lovie!!!

  4. Stanglassman Says:

    A 30 year with 2 ACL tears in less than two years who wants to be paid 7 plus a year? I rather put the future (Smith) in and let him get the reps to grow into a solid LT for the next 10-15 years. Dodson a solid RT.

    I’m concerned about the health of Daquan Bowers knee.

    Yeah, I’ll be concerned about Daquan Bowers knee when monkeys fly out my butt. Nice guy, wish him well, but he has no fire in his belly for the NFL. And that’s OK. There’s nothing wrong with not having a strong enough desire to play in the NFL…as long as you don’t try and play in the NFL. I suspect he might be a great gospel group singer.

  6. Stanglassman Says:

    I’m I the only one who though Bowers played decent DT toward the end of last year? I think they just brought him in to see how he continues to develop at DT. Also as a insurance policy in case they have a rash of injuries at DT. That being said I don’t like his chances at making the 53 with the depth at DT this year.

  7. Buc1987 Says:

    Stan …I think they like his versatility and he’s another one of those guys that “knows the system” whatever that means for a DT…

  8. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    No you’re not the only one to see Bowers play decently as a backup last year.
    Agree with you and so apparently did L&L. And I hope Licht is right and Bowers was humbled and has rededicated himself. It could happen.

  9. Buccfan37 Says:

    Every team has injuries, so I’m not real concerned. Just go with who is healthy, since humans who hit and collide with each other are going to get banged up despite the protective gear being worn. Robots might replace people in many jobs, but robot football aint one of them. Then again, people like to watch the battle bots.

    A snowmobile is like a jet ski, but it is cold as your deep freeze and there is always the possibility of running into a tree if you have a couple too many drinks….and if it breaks down in the middle of nowhere you can freeze to death…..and let’s not forget the ski patrol that can carry you back to the hospital on a little rig through the frozen tundra until you reach civilization and a hospital. And if you are lucky, you can go a couple hundred miles in a day, barhopping your way away from home and hope to once again return home safely.
    LOL! It sounds as if you have visited Montana before.
    Good evening fellas!

  13. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    The defensive players will drop like flys this year. But some of these guys have come in with injuries that are healing.

  14. Bucsalltheway Says:

    I’m still not mad that suh stepped on it…he even knew he had no twigs and berries. Wimps get kicked between the legs lol

  15. Buc1987 Says:

    Bucsalltheway…can you clue me in as wth your talking about?

    Can anybody?

  16. BucsFan85 Says:

    Evening guys, It will be very bad if we have significant injuries before 1st practice. On the bright side, at least we didn’t draft players with lingering injuries.

  17. Firethecannons Says:

    I think a couple years back ndamukong such stepped on Evan smiths nuts

  18. Buc1987 Says:

  22. Buc-A-New Says:

    Did Eric finally come through?

  23. Buc1987 Says:

    Nope is my man Erik that came through in a big way. Not ONLY that but he put some icing on the cake for me. Yesterday he sent me an autographed picture of Gruden holding up the SB trophy.

    Is that not a stand up guy or what?

    It’s a nice feeling to know that there are people still out there in America like Erik Hesson.

    He needs to come to the home opener so I can buy his every beer.

  24. Buc-A-New Says:

    I KNEW IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I Defended him at length. I said that he can’r run a successful business by welching on bets in a Public Forum. Congrats bro. And Im glad I was right

  25. Buc-A-New Says:

    No matter how much you two fought I Knew that both of you would honor your bets. Yes I had faith in you too bro.

  26. Buc1987 Says:

    Yes well he’s going to get a lengthy e-mail from me tomorrow, expressing my gratitude and why. There’s a few things peeps in here don’t know about me or my life for good reason. Erik will know all about it tomorrow.

  27. Buc1987 Says:

    Yes I would have caught holy hell from the wife if I lost that bet. But I would have paid up and dealt with the consequences from my wife. That’s just who I am.

  28. Buc-A-New Says:

    Make sure you tell him gatr said Well Done!!!

  29. Buc-A-New Says:

    Really there is still a filter Joe?

  30. Buc1987 Says:

    Buc…Yes W-S-99 without the slashes won’t go through.

    I’m telling you I don’t know who was right or wrong on the matter but if it was him saying what was said he won’t be back. Not without a VPN or something or other.

  31. Buc-A-New Says:

    I can be GatOr-buc. But if you take out the O, then the filter says F You! Lol
    Still Luv ya tho Joe. More than usual in a totally not gay way.

  32. Buc-A-New Says:

    Mountain time as a Bucs fan is only good during the season when games come on at 11Am Eastern. Peace out Joes and Joes followers.
