Several players expected to fail physicals



One of the potential stories on reporting day is whether any players  fail physical exams.

Most of the Bucs' 80 players are expected to pass, but we've learned tackle Luke Petitgout (knee), running back Cadillac Williams (knee) and rookie running back Cory Boyd (knee) will be possible failures.

Williams is expected to land on the physically unable to perform list which will not allow him to practice with the full team.

The Bucs will also have to make three additional cuts once the unsigned rookies ink their deals. They have already informed a fourth player - an unidentified linebacker - who made way for rookie offensive lineman Jeremy Zuttah. That transaction has not been officially announced.
