Vita Vea Cleared To Play

November 27th, 2022

Will play today.

This is great news!

Per Sara Walsh of NFL Network and later confirmed when the Bucs listed today’s inactives, Pro Bowl nose tackle Vita Vea has the green light to play today.

Vita has a mysterious foot injury that Bucs coach Todd Bowles claims did not happen in the Bucs’ win over Seattle the last time the Bucs played two Sundays ago. Bowles claimed Vea woke up one morning and had a bad foot.

Joe saw Vea in the locker room Wednesday and he was neither in a boot nor was it taped in any way. He was walking around in sandals and did not appear to have any noticable limp.

Given what Joe saw four days ago, this is not a real shock. Still, awesome news as the Browns have serious running backs.

    Hope Vita doesn’t reinjure his foot

  5. Elita Vita Says:

    Does anyone else remember Elita jumping up and down with his shirt off after the game in Germany? 350 pounds celebrating putting all that weight on his feet? Now isn’t possible, just possible he could have injured his foot that way?

  6. Kentucky Buc Says:

    Chance of rain steadily decreasing. 40% at 1. 30% at 2

  7. DungyDance Says:

    Very, very good news. Let’s hope he’s not simply playing at 70%. Although I’d still take that anyway.

  8. Goatfarmer Says:

    Thank you baby jeebus.

  9. Carl L Says:

    Well, it’s evident we have to play defense with 10 guys against Browns. White is absent. Our defense is playing a 3 linebacker set absent a middle linebacker.

    I just watched a few plays during overtime and the Bucs are giving up the game as I expected. Vita Vea being in thye game hasn’t meant a thing. He’s playing just as bad as the rest of the team. Plus they lost one of their best players for the season. Way to go you bunch of losers. How anyone can stomach watching these guys play is beyond me.
