Tristan Wirfs Carted Off Practice Field With Heat Issue

August 2nd, 2022

The headline tells the story. So Joe’s not going to go overboard here.

It was hot as hell at practice today and Tristan Wirfs didn’t pass out, but he did cave in to the heat-related cramps about 85 percent through the session.

Todd Bowles said Wirfs is fine and confirmed it was just a no-biggie cramp issue.

    almost gave me a heart attack!….I read Wirfs carted off….NO!!! then I got to heat issue…phew…this Florida, can happen to literally anyone!

  2. SlyPirate Says:

    Previous coaches would move to earlier practices to avoid heat issues. May be a good idea of players at risk.

    Needs to get in the pool & do some jumping.

    Florida heat and humidity. Almost nothing like it in this country.

    It will knock you out if you dont respect it. Been there a few times over the years trying to ball out in july august and september

    How hot is it out there?

  6. BubBoy Says:

    My coach had us drinking gobs of water 2 HOURS BEFORE a practice or game. He said it takes 2 hours for water to fully saturate your cells.

    Bowles should use the indoor facility two or three times a week to give the players a break from the heat.

    Speaking of offensive lineman is Ryan Jensen having surgery or not?

  10. Buc1987 Says:

    It’s been like 95 out nearly everyday.

    Feels like 100 to me, but who’s counting.

    That heat is sick. I don’t know how guys do it out there in pads during summer. Hottest July Tampa has ever had from what I read. Hydrate and rest, boys!

    Those first couple of words scare the sh!t out of me

  13. THOMAS PFALZ Says:

    First off there should be more evening practices & early morning. Stay hydrated.

  14. DCBUCSFAN Says:

    What is the use of having top of the line indoor facility if they re not gonna use it in this high heat?

  15. captivajim Says:

    looks like bowles is just stubborn…there simply is not ANY good reason to continue with his outdoor nonsense/bravado…
    these guys re BIG men . why grind them up in the heat & humidity???
    in ONE week we’ve lost Jensen during “non contact” underwear practice , and now guys are carted off field with heat stroke !!

    so bowles wants to prove what? he’s HC? he’s a tough guy ???

    i don’t get it…

    Just saw this trending on twitter…

    Very grateful it was just cramps.

  18. Scott Says:

    whats wrong with the glazers we have indoor facility – whats next hamstring pulls – use indoor outdoor 50 50 for early season homefield advantage- lets wear the team out in training camp for regular season – retarded management

  19. Scott Says:

    if bowles choice he is stupid

  20. Scott Says:

    this is a huge threat to 2022 season

  21. Scott Says:

    i am going out to training camp sunday-went out last year with the intrasquad titans – i am used to heat but watching was hot and i dont have pads or weigh 300 lbs

  22. Mike Says:

    This would be an absolute disaster, to say the least, if it was something other than just a heat issue. Best Tackle in the league in my opinion and the 2nd most important offensive player after Brady. I wouldn’t play him another snap in camp or Preseason. We CANNOT lose the great Tristan Wirfs

  23. steele Says:

    How is it that hydration of every single player isn’t monitored and managed by the team, every single day?

  24. Eddie Marz Says:

    Knowing that Wirfs will be fine, my only question is,” how many guys did they need to cart him off? GOBUCS!
