Injuries continue to mount

by Roland Johnson on August 7, 2009

The Buccaneers currently have more then a half dozen players on the walking wounded list, which includes wide receiver Michael Clayton (hamstring), WR Justin Filani (hamstring), WR Kelly Campbell (quad), center Jeff Faine (groin), running back Derrick Ward (foot), linebacker Angelo Crowell (hamstring) and kicker Matt Bryant (leg) are either listed as day to day or have an availability of returning to practice next week.

You can add three more to the list as defensive lineman Greg Peterson (knee), tackle Jeremy Trueblood (back) and running back Clifton Smith (hamstring) suffered minor injuries during Friday mornings workout. They are all listed as day-to-day at this point.

There was some good news on the injury front as wide receiver Antonio Bryant (back) and defensive linemen Louis Holmes (back) and Kyle Moore (shoulder) returned to participate in today’s practice.

It’s not a surprise to see so many players showing up on the injury report during training camp, with the physical style of play head coach Raheem Morris covets from his squad.
