Schiano: Cornerback Eric Wright on the mend after illness



Bucs coach Greg Schiano confirmed that cornerback Eric Wright is dealing with an undisclosed health matter, but Wright’s increased activity during the past two days is bolstering the team’s hopes that the issue is resolved. Wright on Tuesday said only that he was dealing with a personal matter.

“Without getting into the particulars, it was a non-football related health (issue),” Schiano said. “He was very good at communicating where he was (during missed practices) and how he was dealing with it. The thing that excites me is that he did quite a bit yesterday and he did more today.”

Along those lines, Wright was more involved in defensive drills today after seeing more limited action on Monday.

“He made some plays out there today,” Schiano said. “I’m excited.”

Asked whether the situation is resolved, Schiano was optimistic but uncertain.

“I hope it’s behind him," he said.
