Four Bucs Upgraded On Injury Report

September 22nd, 2022

Scotty Miller

A little good health news is always welcome.

Limited in practice Wednesday, Carlton Davis (hip), center Robert Hainsey (knee) and receiver Scotty Miller (calf) were all full-go today.

Hooray!

As Joe wrote earlier, left tackle Donovan Smith is still nursing his hyperextended elbow but he practiced today for the first time since suffering the injury on Sept. 11.

Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Julio Jones (knee) are still out.

There were no newcomers to the injury report but rookie tight end Cade Otton missed his second consecutive practice for undisclosed personal reasons. Joe hopes everyone in Otton’s family is OK.

Russell Gage, Breshad Perriman and Leonard Fournette remained “limited” with their hamstring challenges at what might be renamed the AdventHamstring Training Center.

    This doesn’t suck. It sucks not. No sucky-suck. LOL. Yay, finally some good news on the health-front.

    GO BUCS!!!

    what does the Pack’s injury report look like?

  4. CrackWise Says:

    Damm, I hate hearing UNDISCLOSED PERSONAL REASONS on anything.

    Prayers going up for Ott 🙁

  5. Defense Rules Says:

    Have never been a big believer in coincidence. The fact that so many on our roster seem to have more hamstring issues now versus in years past can’t be just happenstance.

    This seems to have been a much hotter summer than usual, and I wonder if that may have had something to do with it. Or have we changed training regimens in terms of stretching or whatever, and that’s just not working as well. Just seems bizarre to have so many hammy issues going on right now.

  6. Letsbucinggo Says:

    After this season its time to reevaluate at our conditioning coaches.

  7. Bucco Bruce Says:

    Preseason used to be 1st team off and def first game play a set maybe two, second game play up to a quarter, third game play up to a half, fourth game rest.

    Now it’s no playing, no playing, and then maybe some in the third game. Definitely doesn’t help.

  8. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Could be due to practice drills.

  9. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    I totally agree that we need to re evaluate our conditioning coaches.
    I have been watching Pro Football since 1960, and I never remember any team having so many hamstring injuries.

  10. Killian Says:

    Stop being silly and bring up Beasley. He’s a stud and can benefit us immediately with Evans’ injury.

  11. Joseph C Simmons Says:

    Guys, hamstrings have been an issue with the Bucs since I started following them in ’94. It’s the weather and hydration. It’s probably near-impossible to hydrate enough to stay in front of the hamstrings.

  12. CrackWise Says:

    BIGGER mussels mean MORE that can be hurt.

    I remember being told to stop working out because it was gonna cause me to get hurt during games.

    Never had a reason to doubt it so I never questioned it.

  13. CrackWise Says:

    I never made it past POP Warner though. So, there is that!!!

  14. LONG JOHN Says:

    Joe do you know if the Buccaneers still use that freeze machine?

  15. Arn platz Says:

    I am sure the conditioning coach is re-examining stretching and warm up protocols. Hamstrings are the biceps of the legs. A lot of moving parts at both ends.

  16. Bojim Says:

    I still can’t believe they let Godwin play week one. Stupid.

  17. Bojim Says:

    Really stupid.

  18. Bucfan1988 Says:

    BoJim, he tweaked a hammy, not that knee….

    The fact that we saw him making plays that game with no knee issue is incredible and definitely positive…

    He’ll be back soon…

    Lots of teams practice and play in the heat. Wonder if Miami and Jax have those issues as well?

    I don’t get it. Bucs have lead the league in missed games by rbs, receivers and dbs due to hamstring injuries over the last four seasons. Plus, they have Mr. Pliability, Alex Guerrero, setting up a TB12 training area at RJS. Yet, once again the hammy bug hits.

    Hamstring injuries are supposed to be preventable injuries. Now, here’s the paradox: Back in 1999, the Patriots decided to get proactive on preventing their reoccurring hamstring problem. This was well before TB12 and Alex Guerrero. The Pats brought in a consultant who helped put together an off-season, year-round hamstring conditioning/strengthening program and IT WORKED. Read the article to see just how well it eorked.

    So along comes Alex Guerrero who basically reinvents the wheel on overall, holistic, resistance training instead of weights, etc. But he DOESN’T incorporate the Pats’ provenly effective Hamstring Program which, BTW, incorporates many of the concepts of Guerrero’s program? Were the Pats hiding their Hamstring Ptogram from Guerrero? If not, why didn’t he incorporate it into the TB12 Method and why aren’t all the Bucs’ perennial hamstring victms using the Patriots’ Program???

    I’m a fan who is just sick of asking the same question every.dang.year.: Imagine how good this team would be with a healthy receiving corps ALL SEASON LONG while the GOAT is here???

    From the linked article:

    “Why hamstring injuries are so common in NFL players, during preseason training”

    “More than 15 years ago, the Patriots wanted to reduce hamstring injuries. What resulted was a program so effective THE TEAM CONSIDERED IT A COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE the in the NFL.”…..

  21. SB~LV Says:

    Of course Scotty is going to tell the trainer’s he feels good to go, he is that close.

  22. D Says:

    Crackwise is getting me hungry with that “mussels” reference.

    I wonder if these guys are adequately replenishing their electrolytes. If they are just drinking water to hydrate, there will be a significant dilution of electrolytes, which can lead to all kinds injury risks.

  23. David Says:

    PatrickBuc… Yes. Some people are more susceptible to hamstring issues no matter how much they stretch. A big part is hydration. Miami has a lot of issues as well. Not sure on Jacksonville.
    When I lived in Colorado in the 1990s it seemed like Denver always had a couple players dealing with a hamstring problem. Down here it’s humidity and you just sweat a ton. In Denver it’s dry so it is sneaky, you don’t realize that you get dehydrated.

    There is definitely an excessive amount this year with the Buccaneers. They all seem pretty mild except Godwin and that’s probably due to limping and favoring different parts of the body while recovering from his surgery

  24. BigMacAttack Says:

    How are Scotty’s hands? Hopefully they will work and he will able to catch the ball this week. I was embarrassed for him and Brate. Maybe receivers aren’t supposed to catch any more.

  25. Anon Says:

    Packers injury report has every one of their top WR’s as DNP today. They were limited yesterday.

    Not every Bucs player wants to or does TB12. And Belicheat considered him little more than a witchdoctor.

  27. Don Eladio Says:

    “Knee bruise” huh. Didn’t know bruises kept you out multiple games

  28. TB12FAN Says:

    Its early, always going to be sore hamstrings.
    As long as there are no tears.
    It’s a marathon, not a sprint. We need this team healthy and peaking in December, not September. No need to rush players back too soon.

    Right now it’s all about the D for Bucs. 13 points!!! Giving up late TD to Saints.

    Let the Defense carry the team now and have the offense come together later.

  29. steele Says:

    AtticusF, thank you for that. I remember that period, and you’re right. Something got lost in the transition. Whatever regimen worked, Bucs need to get on it. They’re going to suffer if they don’t.

  30. Apollo Says:

    I am tired with our players constantly getting injured. What kind of training are they doing in the off season? If you know you have a history of hamstring problems, then the trainers and players should be doing everything in their power to keep the hamstrings in the best possible condition to prevent reoccurring injuries. If they aren’t doing that, then they should. If they are doing that and they are still getting injured, then their body isn’t strong enough to play professional football and they should retire. They are totally letting the fans and their teammates down by getting injured all the time and still getting paid. Walter Payton, Jim Brown, and of course the GOAT Tom Brady, we will never see players like them ever again. Need I say more.

    Didn’t they play 6 preseason games back in the 60s? Now they’re down to 3 games, and our starters played all of 1 series. League wide injuries seem to be way up, and while it could just people are wimps now and people sit for all sorts of reason when they used to play through it, I think a large part is that guys are being asked to go from practice to full speed games with no ramp up time.

    I don’t know if there’s any stats to support that, but I know many old players say you need those preseason reps before playing in games.

  32. Eckwood Says:

    Seriously Licht !! You Have a Big Time SPORTS hamstring problem. It isn’t by chance

  33. teacherman777 Says:

    Hamstrings?

    Ask Ronde about his pre-practice stretching routine.

    Start doing more yoga.

    Hydrate with water and not Gatorade.

  34. Infomeplease Says:

    Next Man Up!!!! LFG!!!!

  35. Goatfarmer Says:

    Here on the goat ranch we hydrate with delicious beer. Our goats have no issues with hamstring issues.

    > 93% water and delicious protein and carbs.

    That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard.

  37. Brandon Says:

    All the Monday Morning Doctors coming out of the woodwork to tell us what they know about hamstrings… which is nothing. None of you know anything. The training staff has a Super Bowl win under their belt… what’s that mean? That means they were the healthiest team in the league in February 2021.

    Hamstring issues are super common in August and September… and considering two of the hammies in question weren’t with the team until April or May and in the Bucs system until then, they don’t count. Look around the league, WRs, DBs, and RBs all around are having hamstring issues… it isn’t a coincidence. As for our issues… when has Mike Evans NOT had hamstring issues in September? As for Godwin, most people coming back from ACL injuries have issues with their ACLs. Perriman has also always had issues… McCollom and Gage weren’t with us until late. I’m not worried nor do I blame our amazing training staff. For the record, I personally know quite a bit more about the subjects of sports conditioning and speed, agility, and quickness training than probably all of you, but the Bucs staff know way more than I do…. let them handle their business. You guys coming in criticizing them when you barely know the first thing about the subject makes no sense.

  38. Jeffrey Becker Says:

    teams should trade in a small portion of their weight room work for yoga, been saying it for years. when i started yoga/stretching regimen my basketball game improved dramatically range of motion makes for better athletes who don’t tweak muscles as often
