I know we’re down, Buccaneers‘ fans. After reaching .500, it has been a tough couple of weeks. Derek Carr went nuts two weeks ago, and the team looked pretty bad against the Falcons.
The team sits at 3-5 and, as Zach Sauers talked about, heads into a game that could really be a turning point for the second half. Or it could send the season into the sunset, leaving the Bucs on the outside looking in at the playoff race.
But the one thing the team IS doing is getting healthy. We had a little hiccup last week with the big hit on Mike Evans, and we all had a big scare when Jameis Winston left the game last week to be replaced by Mike Glennon.
Well, we have already heard some good news today. Doug Martinreturned to practice. But wait, there’s more. Take a look at the rest of the report for the Bucs:
So it seems that both Evans and Winston are going to be OK. Koetter stated in his press conference that Evans was set to take the concussion test tonight or early tomorrow to remove him from protocol officially. But him practicing is obviously a good sign.
