Raheem Morris announced that Jeremy Zuttah has cracked the starting lineup for Sunday’s game. It’ll mark the fourth time in four seasons that Zuttah’s been called upon to either fill in for an injured teammate or pick up the slack for an under-performer.
The move sends second-year left guard Ted Larsen to the bench in an effort to revitalize the stagnate Tampa ground game. “Larsen didn’t play terrible last week,” said Morris, “but coming off the (ankle) injury, I didn’t think he played as aggressive as he normally could and give me the power that he normally gave me last year. So we’ll try a little change up this week.”
Let’s hope it works. Tampa Bay running backs averaged only 2.5 yards per carry against Detroit.
