Bucs break camp


Yesterday was the last day of training camp for the Bucs, which means no more two-a-days in a heat index of 100 degrees for the players. The Bucs will return home to One Buc Place for one practice a day, while they prepare for the season ahead.

Offensive tackle Derrick Deese is still unsure how big of a role he can play this season, as he waits to hear how serious his foot injury is. Deese took a series of medical tests Tuesday in California, which could very likely determine if he will be able to play this season. If Deese is unable to play, expect Anthony Davis to start in his place at left tackle. Davis is also overcoming a thigh bruise, but Gruden has said he expects Davis to be ready to play in Saturday's home game against Jacksonville.

Additionally, the Bucs traded an undisclosed draft pick to the Cowboys for offensive tackle Sam Wilder. Wilder, a 6 foot 5, 302 pound product of Colorado, is an undrafted rookie. Wilder was added to provide depth at a left tackle position beset by injury, and a shaky right tackle position where Kenyatta Walker is starting and his backup, Chris Colmer, has not impressed the coaches.
