Bucs Beat

Two days and counting....



The Bucs completed their Tuesday morning practice at Disney, and after this afternoon's workout, they will have just two days of training camp remaining. Thursday is the final day in Lake Buena Vista. The Bucs will return to Tampa and their new training facility after this weekend's preseason game against the Dolphins.

On Tuesday, there was still no sign of defensive tackle Chris Hovan, who is still dealing with an unspecified infection that required a visit to the hospital on Monday. Hovan has missed three consecutive days of practice.

Shelton Quarles rested his sore ankle again, giving backup middle linebacker Barrett Ruud some valuable reps. Running back Michael Pittman (Achilles) returned to practice, as did cornerback  Torrie Cox (ankle) and offensive tackle Torrin Tucker (knee).

There were a couple of roster moves today, with the Bucs signing fullback Robert Douglas and placing rookie tight end T.J. WIlliams on injured reserve. Williams injured his Achilles tendon during offseason workouts and will not play this season. In addition, tight end Leonard Stephens was waived.
