After having the weekend off, the Bucs were back at work Monday at One Buc Place. Unfortunately, the team is dealing with another controversy concerning a cornerback and Adderall. First it was Aqib Talib. Now, according to Jay Glazer of FOX, Eric Wright is now facing a 4-game suspension for the same offense.
Head coach Greg Schiano declined to comment on the matter during his Monday press conference because of “league guidelines”. When asked if he thought Adderall use was a problem in the locker room, Schiano denied that was the case.
In the locker room, players did not say much on the matter. “The verdict is still out on that so….I don’t even know what’s going on”, says defensive tackle Roy Miller. Cornerbacks E.J. Biggers and Leonard Johnson figure to be the starters this week in Oakland if the Wright suspension goes down. Johnson is coming off a stellar outing against the Vikings last week and says he’s ready for a larger role. “I’m just taking it one day at a time…the whole Eric Wright situation will handle itself out, the Achilles or whatever else is going on….Right now, I’m just trying to focus on getting better”.
Schiano said Wright tweaked his Achilles during the Vikings game. Wright was seen riding the stationary bike during the early portion of practice. He was not made available to the media today. There’s no timetable on when the league will officially announce any discipline. Stay tuned.
