Bucs WR Galloway could play vs. Seahawks

TAMPA — The White Tiger could be on the prowl Sunday.

WR Joey Galloway, so nicknamed by his coach for his rare appearances, is expected to return against the Seahawks after missing the past four games with a right foot sprain.

Galloway, 36, practiced Thursday and Friday but is listed as questionable.

"He's getting better,'' coach Jon Gruden said. "We'll make the decision on Sunday, but he did do a little bit more (Friday).

"He's not had many practices since last November. We'll look at the film and see how he feels. We're very optimistic, though. It does look like he's getting better."

In other injury news, starting LG Arron Sears practiced despite a right knee sprain and likely will be a game-time decision. He is listed as questionable. If he is unable to play, rookie Jeremy Zuttah will start. Zuttah started the first four games of the season at right guard for injured Davin Joseph.

WR Maurice Stovall (hamstring) and FB B.J. Askew did not practice this week and are out. Backup QB Brian Griese (elbow) was limited Friday and is questionable.

JET LAG: The Seahawks are 1-4. Making matters worse is having to travel 3,000 miles. They are 10-19 on the East Coast under coach Mike Holmgren.

"It has been hard for us," he said. "It was even hard when I was in San Francisco as an assistant coach. If you coach in those cities — Seattle, San Francisco, Oakland — it's just part of the deal. I don't talk about it a lot with my players.

"We practice in training camp early, and we have good, spirited practices. While there is a certain challenge to it, there is no question about it. It can never be used as an excuse."
