How will Bucs utilize Zuttah and Vincent at LG? Neither knows for sure
Guard/center Jeremy Zuttah participated in one offensive play during the Bucs 17-14 win over the Cleveland Browns.
But that could change if offensive coordinator Greg Olson goes ahead with his plan to utilize Zuttah and starting left guard Keydrick Vincent during Sunday's game at Carolina.
"Everybody wants to play,'' Zuttah said. "Nobody comes out here to watch or try to be a backup. Your goal is to be a starter in this league, and if you’re a starter, to be a great one. My goal doesn’t keep changing no matter what the situation is.''
The idea is to keep the 32-year-old Vincent fresh during the game. Zuttah, who started 16 games at left guard last season, is valuable as the club's backup at both guard spots and center.
While Vincent may be a more physical run blocker, Zuttah provides some continuity for the Bucs and might be a little better in pass protection.
Vincent said he was unaware of Olson's plans against the Panthers this week.
“I don’t know,'' Vincent said. "He probably mentioned it during the meetings...as far as coach, it’s whatever they want to do. I don’t care.’’
