Bucs LB Black doubtful, rookie Foster likely will have full-time duty



Bucs linebacker Quincy Black missed a third straight practice Friday due to an ankle sprain and is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Black was benched in the second half of last week's 24-20 win at Minnesota due to the injury. Rookie Mason Foster will likely have an expanded role and play on every down while being relied upon to wear the helmet transmitter and call defenses.

"Quincy is doubtful right now,'' coach Raheem Morris said. "We'll have to see. You guys know how we kind of work around here. We want to get him out there and get him active.

"I know I'm looking forward to possibly seeing him move around tomorrow and hopefully on game day.''
