Boston practices, could play at Miami
David Boston participated in the Bucs' walk-through practice today and will accompany the team to Miami for Saturday night's preseason game againt the Dolphins.
Coach Jon Gruden will decide whether Boston plays.
Boston was arrested Thursday night in Pinellas Park on charges of driving under the influence. Police say he was found passed out on the steering wheel of his truck at the intersection of 49th Street and Park Blvd., in Pinellas Park.
He was arrested after police conducted a field sobriety test. A subsequent breath test revealed no alcohol and results of a a urine test are pending.
Police say Boston told them he had recently left the Celebration Hotel near Orlando and was headed to Tampa International Airport. Well, the Bucs checked out of their training camp home more than a week ago, so none of that makes sense.
The feeling here is that the Bucs believe these charges won't stick and there might have been another reason for Boston's condition.
At any rate, the Bucs almost always wait until all the facts are known in a case before commenting.
By now, Boston has told team officials his side of the story. They're letting him travel with the team and he will likely play.
