Bucs had 15 players catch the flu on plane home from London



Bucs coach Raheem Morris said about 15 players and a few coaches were hit with a flu bug after traveling home on the charter flight from London last Monday.

The Bucs have only practiced about 2 1/2 hours since their 35-7 loss to the New England Patriots at Wembley Stadium.

"We definitely felt better going to London, being over there, going how our owners recommended,'' Morris said during his weekly radio show on 620-WDAE Monday. "Coming back it hits you when you wake up in the middle oif the night,. It was tougher to adjust coming back, especially fighting the bug that hit our plane. We had 15 or so guys that were unable to practice because of the bug that hit our plane.

"We were in a tube for eight hours with the ability to get sick.''
