Eric Wright goes down while E.J. Biggers gets going
CB Eric Wright left the game in the third quarter with what was described as a head injury after taking a knee to the back of the head.
He left the locker room without addressing reporters, but the Bucs were fortunate his loss came on a day E.J. Biggers finally made his 2012 debut.
After breaking his foot on the first day of training camp in July, Biggers played for the first time, recording one tackle and a pass deflection.
It’s been a long time coming.
“I’ve been waiting and I’ve been wanting to be out there with the boys,” Biggers said. “I’ve been there every day, working every day. I’m just happy to be back out there.”
Biggers immediately took on the nickel back role in his return, making him the first cornerback off the bench. That role had been occupied in previous weeks by veteran journeyman Brandon McDonald. Myron Lewis was left inactive Sunday.
