Bucs Lee and Trueblood battle for right tackle spot



James Lee, who missed most of the last two games with an ankle sprain, took the first reps Thursday at right tackle but still alternated with Jeremy Trueblood.

Coach Raheem Morris did not name a starter for Sunday’s game at New Orleans and said he plans to evaluate the practice tape.

“The first team reps are being split right now. I would have to say James Lee went out first. Trueblood went out second and they went out there and competed again today. I've got to go watch tape and evaluate it, obviously.’’
In other injury news, fullback Earnest Graham (neck) is out for Sunday’s game against the Saints. Receiver Sammie Stroughter (hamstring) and tight end Kellen Winslow (knee) returned to practice.
