Bucs move preseason finale to Wednesday

With Tropical Depression Nine moving toward Florida, the Bucs announced Monday night that their final preseason game against the Redskins at Raymond James Stadium has been moved from Thursday to Wednesday at 8 p.m. "We have been in regular communication with administrators from the Tampa Sports Authority, Hillsborough County, the City of Tampa and the National Weather Service over the past day as it has become apparent that the most severe weather associated with Tropical Depression Nine will likely make landfall on Thursday," Bucs COO Brian Ford said in a statement. "This decision was made by both teams in conjunction with the National Football League and local authorities in an effort to ensure the safety of our fans, players and stadium staff." The game will still be broadcast locally on Ch. 8.
