Tampa Bay Bucs-Detroit Lions game blacked out locally

What is it Raheem Moris says?

"We're becoming impossible to ignore,'' Morris said.

Well, not exactly. For the seventh time in as many regular season games at Raymond James Stadium this year, the Bucs will be blacked out again Sunday.

The team failed to sell out the game prior to Thursday's 1 p.m. deadline. The Bucs are 3-3 at Raymond James Stadium this year.

"We've got another significant game at home versus a young football team in Detroit that's poised and getting better every week,'' Morris said. "You can see it on tape. They're following the lead of their coach and following a lot of things we preach, playing fast, playing hard, playing smart and playing consistent. You see these guys keep getting better.''

The Bucs have lost six starters to season-ending injuries the last three games, but the players that remain appear healthy. WR Mike Williams (knee) and TE Kellen Winslow (knee) had full participation in practice Thursday.
