Camp Notes: 7/31

Here is what has been going on with the Bucs the past couple of days, in non-Favre related news.

  • Jeff Garcia was carted off the field today. It was reported that he had ice on his calf, and was walking with a noticeable limp. 
  • For the third time in six seasons, Torrie Cox has torn his ACL. He was placed on the injured reserve list today, and is out for the season.
  • Joey Galloway is still not practicing, as he is nursing a groin injury.
  • Jeff Faine, B.J. Askew, and Sabby Piscitelli were held out of practice today with injuries. 
  • Despite the injury, Sabby Piscitelli is looking so impressive, that Jon Gruden is trying to create different defensive schemes, just so Piscitelli can get some playing time.
  • Dexter Jackson, Micheal Spurlock, and Clifton Smith have been returning kicks.
  • The Bucs have signed fullback Carl Stewart.
  • Michael Clayton wanted to be better, and so far, he has been. Clayton could be in a four-way battle for starter.
  • Greg White is appearing to have no trouble in his switch to left end.
  • Luke McCown is still impressing people, and could get some first-string reps, depending on the seriousness of Garcia’s injury.
