Cool Story On Demar Dotson Status

December 22nd, 2016
Status still uncertain.

Status still uncertain.

So, yeah, the way Gosder Cherilus (didn’t) pass block the past two weeks, it gave fans an all new appreciation for Demar Dotson.

The veteran right tackle has been in concussion protocol the past two weeks, and while he has resumed limited participation in practice, that is in no way indicative of whether he will be cleared to suit up Saturday in New Orleans.

Well, yesterday, Dotson was in the locker room during media availability. Joe had forgotten all about the rule that players in concussion protocol are off limits to media, as the klieglights of TV cameras can be bad for folks trying to recover from a concussion.

It is funny sometimes. It’s like an Easter egg hunt occasionally in the Bucs locker room. A reporter or two will talk to a player, and in seconds there’s a 14-person mob surrounding the chat, replete with TV lights. This is why players are off-limits to media while in concussion protocol.

Anyway, while Joe was chatting with Dotson, friendly guy that he is, a member of the Bucs media relations staff politely walked up to Joe to remind that Dotson is off limits for reasons cited above. Whoops!

Later, when Joe was cutting the podcast of the Custodian of Canton, eye-RAH! Kaufman, Joe learned Ira had made the same mistake and was shooed away.

The main reason Joe is writing this is that Joe can confirm first-hand Dotson is in concussion protocol and that teams very much take this seriously.

Well, at least the Bucs do.

    any info in the webster kid if dot doesnt go? at least he took some snaps last week

    any info if they are going to swap pampile to the other side and plug evan smith?

    worried about this game. we need a decent game by the oline to steal one here.

    the offense has to win this game. i hope jaboo plays smart because he will win or lose this game.

    we need to be close in the 4th quarter and will ourselves to victory

    Agree why not swap Pamphile outside and Evan Smith at LG until Dot is back.

  4. Guzzie Says:

    Putting pamphile at RT and putting E Smith at LG makes sense, and that’s why the Bucs won’t do it, they’d rather throw dead weight (Cherilus) or UDFA to protect the franchise QB, SMDH

  5. Bradinator Says:

    @ Rojas I was thinking the same exact thing this week. Pamphile was supposed to be the “swing” guy in the first place. Evan Smith is healthy again. Why not? Sure can’t go with Cherilus out there again.

    Dotson was not playing much better than Gos was… How quickly bucs fans forget how bad dotson really is. In addition to being a turnstile he’s a penalty machine.

  7. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    EDS is as bad as Cherilus! Gave up that sack fumble that lost the Rams game as soon as they put him in!

  8. 813bucboi Says:

    I think the bucs are damned if they do…and damned if they don’t….moving pamp outside means you have 2 weak links straight up the middle….not good….keeping pamp inside with a rookie on the edge means we still have a weak link up the middle and one on the edge….josh allen looked decent playing guard but that was in preseason……dirks going to have to pick his poison….GO BUCS!!!!

    Cool story bro!

    No, not really.

    How is that a coo story? Interesting maybe. Cool?

    You need a beer, Joe, lol.

  11. unbelievable Says:

    cool story bro!

    Can you tell us the tale of how players tie their shoes next? I bet it’s just as riveting.

    WTF. SO there’s no chance of Dotson this Sat.
