Long snapper Andrew Economos nearing return from PUP list
The Bucs waived long snapper Christian Yount today, which only reinforces the fact that long-time snapper Andrew Economos will be back after the bye.
Economos ruptured his Achilles tendon while working out during the NFL's lockout and was placed on the physically unable to perform list entering training camp. He remains there now, but last week Economos became eligible to begin practicing and did. The Bucs have a window during which he can remain in that status, but he apparently is ready to be activated return given the decision to waive Yount.
Economos has been the Bucs' long snapper since 2007.
