James Lee still lining up at right tackle for Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Jeremy Trueblood is still giving way to James Lee at right tackle as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers began preparations today for the San Francisco 49ers.

Trueblood is participating in practice with his teammates at the moment, but in the portion of practice during which the starting offensive line worked together, Lee was working with the starters at right tackle.

This is consistent with what Trueblood told us this morning, that his right knee injury isn't quite 100 percent. He suffered a sprained MCL earlier this month and the stability of the knee remains a bit of an issue, he said.

The Bucs decided on Sunday to give Trueblood a little more time before putting him back in the starting lineup, but they might be willing to wait another week if they're not satisfied with the progres of his injury.
