TAMPA — Few are privy to the interactions in a football huddle. Following Sunday’s 31-17 Bucs win, running back Leonard Fournette gave us all a glimpse.In the third quarter, with the Bucs clinging to a one-possession lead, Fournette said he told his offensive line: “Y’all give me an inch, I’ll take it a mile.” Then he delivered, sealing the game with a 46-yard touchdown run inside the game’s final two minutesFournette, who took advantage of an expanded role in the offense after joining the team less than three weeks ago, gave Tampa Bay a big ground gain that it hasn’t seen often.Dating to the beginning of the 2017 season, Fournette’s run was just the Bucs' second of more than 40 yards. Ronald Jones had a 49-yarder against the Texans last season.And according to guard Ali Marpet, Fournette’s words definitely sparked the offensive line, which did a solid job of run blocking Sunday.“I loved it,” Marpet said. “(It was) a little bit of a burst of energy. I’m going to try to give him more than an inch, but if that’s all he needs — it got me excited (and) I think it got the rest of the offensive line excited and fired up. The best part about it is he backed it up. He brought it.”Sunday’s game had several similarities between last year’s home loss to the Giants; the Bucs went up three touchdowns early and lost momentum in the second half. But killing clock with the running game allowed the Bucs to win this time.“When there’s swings in momentum, you definitely feel that on the sideline,” Marpet said. “I’m hoping that this year — there’s always going to be stuff that goes your way and stuff that doesn’t go your way — but to sort of mitigate those swings, just keep the momentum on our side as best we can, I think that makes a big difference. There’s so many games in this league that are this close, and the momentum and mitigating swings is just all you can do. As long as we can just keep doing that moving forward, we’ll be really good.”Entering the opening week of the season, there was concern about whether there would be more positive COVID-19 tests with teams going on the road for the first time. But for the testing period following Week 1 games, no players tested positive, according to the league.The period (Sept. 13-19) included 36,664 tests administered, including a total of 7,845 players and team personnel. While there were no positive tests among players, there were five positives among personnel.One player and seven team personnel tested positive in the period prior to Week 1.The Bucs released cornerback Mazzi Wilkins, who was signed from the practice squad before the game against the Panthers. Wilkins, a USF product, played eight snaps on special teams. He could be invited to rejoin the practice squad if he clears waivers.Receiver Cyril Grayson and tight end Tanner Hudson were elevated from the practice squad for last Sunday’s game and returned afterward as part of new COVID-19-related roster rules.
