Training camp

Tampa Bay Bucs news and notes

Quote of the day

"You want to go out there and get him 12 to 15 snaps unless something happens — like he goes out there and goes 4-for-4 and throws a touchdown. Then you say, 'Okay, that's enough.' "

Coach Raheem Morris on QB Josh Freeman's expected playing time vs. the Chiefs

Number of the day

3 Television blackouts on the opening weekend of the preseason. The Bucs are facing a likely blackout of their preseason home opener Saturday against the Chiefs.

Guest of the day

Gerald McCoy Sr. was at camp Monday with family members to watch son Gerald Jr. Dad made the trip to Miami to watch his son's first career action then dropped in to stay in Tampa a few days.

One thing was clear: Personality runs in the family. Gerald Sr. greeted everyone (even reporters) with a bear hug — you know, the kind Gerald Jr. gave commissioner Roger Goodell on stage at the draft.

Futbol or football?

The Tampa Bay Rowdies visited the Bucs on Monday, with about 15 members of the team touring the facility and viewing some of the team's workout.

Coach Paul Dalglish was among the visiting Rowdies, as was Jeremy Christie, a member of New Zealand's World Cup squad.

The Rowdies begin a three-game homestand at 7:30 Thursday night at Steinbrenner Field.

Injury updates

The Bucs got encouraging injury news Monday.

Most of the players who missed Saturday's game at Miami returned to practice. That includes TE Kellen Winslow (knee), CB Myron Lewis (hamstring) and RB Clifton Smith (hamstring).

CB Aqib Talib did not make the trip for personal reasons. He practiced Monday and is expected to play against the Chiefs.

WR Mike Williams missed practice because of an illness and should return today.
