Another hot day here at One Buc Place as the 1-0 Buccaneers were back on the practice field today as they get ready for Sunday’s road game against the 0-1 Giants at the Meadowlands. On the injury front, running back LeGarrette Blount was back at practice today. Blount sat out practice yesterday with a neck stinger. Team officials say he visited a specialist in North Carolina and was cleared to return to action. Blount says he felt a “sharp pain” but is feeling fine now.
Right tackle Jeremy Trueblood was limited in practice today and was seen riding the bike. Head coach Greg Schiano says Trueblood twisted his ankle during Wednesday’s practice and hopes he can be ready for Sunday. Demar Dotson took reps with the first team at RT. Guard Carl Nicks did practice today on a limited basis after sitting out yesterday with a jammed toe. Nicks did not get reps with the first team but Schiano is confident he’ll play. WR Arrelious Benn(knee) and CB Anthony Gaitor(hamstring) practiced in full.
