Bucs daily grind

Gruden vs. Galloway

We're not sure who got more out of it, but injured Joey Galloway and coach Jon Gruden spent a little quality time with each other at Thursday's morning practice.

Galloway has been working on conditioning under the supervision of trainers because a lingering groin strain has kept him out of practice since camp started July 26. He was injured during personal workouts before reporting.

Gruden had said that Monday was the target date for Galloway's return, but that didn't happen.

The coach might have to accompany Galloway in the training room after Thursday.

"I ran some 100s today with Joey Galloway, so I'm on the injured list today," Gruden said. Future Bucs from abroad?

Football in Panama? Who knew?

The Panama Marlins, a group of youth all-stars, visited camp Thursday after traveling this week to Pasco County, where they played an exhibition against the Wesley Chapel Cowboys.

The players participated in drills and spent time chatting with players and coaches.

It wasn't the organization's first trip to the United States. In 2005, the group dispatched a team to Norristown, Pa., for games. In 2006, it played against teams from the East Lake Eagles program, and last year it visited Alpharetta, Ga., for games.

Many of the players are the children of military personnel stationed in the Central American country.

Quote of the day

"We feel like we'll let him go up against the 18-0 Patriots."

GRUDEN VS. GALLOWAY

We're not sure who got more out of it, but injured Joey Galloway and coach Jon Gruden spent a little quality time with each Thursday's morning practice.

Galloway has been working on daily conditioning under the supervision of trainers since he has been unable to practice because of a lingering groin strain. Galloway hasn't participated since the start of practice on July 26. He sustained the injury during personal workouts prior to reporting for camp.

Gruden previously said last Monday was the target date for Galloway's return to practice, but we're still waiting for the veteran's first workout.

The coach might have to accompany Galloway in the training room after Thursday.

"I ran some 100s today with Joey Galloway, so I'm on the injured list today," Gruden said.

FUTURE BUCS FROM ABROAD?

Football in Panama? Who knew?

The Panama Marlins, a group of youth all-stars from Panama visited Bucs camp Thursday on the heels of their visit to this week to Pasco County where they played an exhibition against the Wesley Chapel Cowboys.

The players participated in drills and spent time chatting with players and coaches.

It wasn't their first trip to the States. The organization has dispatched past teams to as far away as Norristown, Pa. in 2005 for games there. In 2006, they played against teams from the East Lake Eagles and last year visited Alpharetta, Ga. for games there.

Many of the players, it turns out, are the children of military personnel stationed in the Central American country.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"We feel like we'll let him go up against the 18-0 Patriots."

    Golf

    SOUTHPORT, England — Someday, perhaps soon, there will be a plaque at Royal Birkdale for Jordan Spieth, much like the one off the 16th hole that celebrates Arnold Palmer and the 6-iron he slashed out of the rough in 1961 to win the British Open and usher in a new era of golf.

    Matt Kuchar plays out of the bunker on the 18th hole and finishes with bogey for 1-under 69. He had a one-shot lead after 13 holes.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Well, that was lovely.

    Brad Boxberger suffers his second loss in the three-game series, this time by allowing back-to-back homers in the eighth inning when called on to protect a 5-3 lead. “Just bad pitches,” he says.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Some of RHP Sergio Romo's numbers this season with the Dodgers were the worst of his career, yet the Rays feel he can be a good fit for their bullpen.
