Tampa Bay Buccaneers DE Stylez G White expects to play after missing this past Sundays game with what was cited as an apparent shoulder injury. According to White, the reason he needed to sit out against the Dolphins was due in large part to him losing strength in his left shoulder / trapezius muscle. White who has three sacks, in his three starts since the team traded, under achieving DE Gaines Adams to the Bears, said he definitely anticipates playing this week, As far as he’s concerned, he’s playing.
It would appear that the medical staff cleared him to return to practice based on comments from Raheem Morris to local beat reports saying, that he thinks White will practice this week. Yet he’s not totally sure where he is physically, but that the team should know more about his situation come Wednesday.
Of course, the team needs all hands on deck this coming Sunday when the vaunted New Orleans Saints offense comes marching into town lead by one of the leagues most prolific passers. If White is mentally or physically unable to preform at or near 100% he’s not going to be able to help the team and might make the Bucs secondary easy pickings for one the leagues elite passers.
After watching last weeks game without White in the lineup, you can beat the coaching staff is holding their collective breath that White is able to suit up this Sunday.
