Peyton Barber Returned To Practice!

October 25th, 2018

The guy on the left looked healthy today; the guy on the right plays for Oakland, thankfully.

Great news at One Buc Palace this afternoon!

The running backs stable was full and they were all running and cutting and looking pretty good during the first 30 minutes of practice, which is open to media.

That means Peyton Barber, who sat yesterday while nursing an injured ankle, was back on the field.

While a lot Bucs fans might prefer to see Ronald Jones get his first first-team workload of the season Sunday, Joe was ecstatic to see Barber. It looks like he’ll play in Cincinnati.

Gerald McCoy (calf) and Vinny Curry (ankle), however, were not spotted on the practice field. No surprise. And no surprise that Demar Dotson was back practicing.

Barring any new injuries today, those are your only injured Bucs.

    Yes they’re going to need him Sunday

  2. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    Peyton Barber is starting to prove himself as being a very hard-working, tough individual who WANTS this job. Gotta love the heart.

  3. K2 Says:

    Would like to see him in reserve Sunday….use if needed. I want to have him at full strength when we play Carolina.

  4. Casey Morgan Says:

    Glad Barber is back, but I would like to see Jones get at least half the carries. And might as well release Rodgers– he’s just taking up a roster spot…

    I too, am excited – I am not quite sure where our running game would be without that 3.5 yard rushing average. Gosh, our offense would be in complete shambles if he missed this Sundays game. Whenever I watch Peyton Barber run, its like im watching a combination of Bo Jackson and Earl Campbell

  9. Joehelldeloxley Says:

    not good for McCoy and Curry but better for Barber and Dotson.

    Not sur eit will change anything in Cincinnati but still always better to have “all” players available.

  10. Bucsfanman Says:

    Ah, Earl Campbell! Music to my ears! Where are those “Earl” types? Bettis? Riggins and Alstott? Franco? Heck, I’ll even take a Marshawn Lynch!

    Csonka, Bulaich, Wilder, Van Egan….

    @Casey Morgan

    Rodgers just takes up roster spot?

    Actually is very good pass blocker for being whatever size he is. And he can gain some yards sometimes with the minimal amount of carries. RoJo and Shaun Wilson gonna be 2 and 3? Don’t think so.

    I want rojo to get more touches …

  14. Noles Says:

    WD 40 was my favorite combo but of course Gruden screwed that up and didn’t sign DUNN. We all know he was the real GM… imagine the playoff run minus Michael Pittman & add Warrick Dunn. I know we won but maybe we win more than one w him. A guy who they said couldn’t run between the tackles but proved everyone wrong. He had wiggle like Barry with a big Heart. Class act miss guys like that being bucs most of our current players act loke clowns….

  15. bucy Says:

    Doug Martin > Rojo so in that case its not thankfully we shipped him to Oakland…

  16. The Buc Realist Says:

    Don’t know why joe would be “ecstatic” about anything with the run game!!!! It has been horrible and yet, joe won’t make one mention of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Joe loves how you have so much fun making things up. –Joe
