One more practice opened to public
The Bucs planned on Tuesday's practice being the final one open to the public, but because of demand, the team changed its mind.
Fans can attend one more workout, Aug. 14 at One Buc Place, the team said. Practice will begin at 8:45 a.m. and gates open at 7:30.
The Bucs have two closed workouts this week and wind down training camp next week after Friday night's preseason opener at Miami.
The Bucs announced that about 30,000 attended the FanFest and/or practice Saturday at Raymond James Stadium. Players have signed autographs after every public practice.
INJURIES: CB Aqib Talib (hamstring) did not practice Tuesday, nor did. DT Gary Gipson (undisclosed injury). DE Michael Bennett, who missed several days with what looked to be concussion-like symptoms, returned to practice. S Ronde Barber was limited. Donald Penn (calf) and Arrelious Benn (MCL sprain) did not practice.
Coach Greg Schiano said Tallib is "going to be okay, we're just precautionary." He did every rep. … I want to make sure that he's going to be okay. I don't want to aggravate that thing. Then Gary has had a little thing where he felt better, then he tweaked it again."
Quote of the day
"The goal of this whole thing is let's come out with the best 53 for the Bucs. Not necessarily the best 53, but the best 53 for the Bucs."
— Greg Schiano, coach
