MEREDITH ON CRUTCHES: So here’s a fun little tidbit. Jamon Meredith, the guy nobody heard of a few months ago and who has been on the team briefly enough that the Times needed to run with a photo of him in a Giants uniform and who is currently starting in place of Davin Joseph, rolled his ankle and is questionable for Sunday.
“We don’t have that many more moves left,” coach Greg Schiano said.
That made the sight of starting RG Jamon Meredith leaving the locker room on crutches Wednesday afternoon concerning. He was limited at practice after rolling an ankle. The severity of the injury was unknown.
[emphasis mine because holy shit.]
The article says Roger Allen is his backup. I know the Bucs have had some good luck with all the line shifting so far, but they’re digging so deep into the roster that I don’t know who these people are. If Allen gets hurt, they may want to just put a big foam helmet on Captain Fear and stick him in there.
LEONARD JOHNSON’S PICK SIX: The Tribune has a nice personal interest story about Leonard Johnson couched in the story of his pick six last week. It’s well-written, it’s got heart without being sappy, and heaven help me it’s by Martin Fennelly. Seriously, he just kind of lets the story happen and doesn’t get in the way too much with his nonsense. It is the best piece I’ve read of his in years. Maybe the Mayans were right.
PRO BOWL: If you haven’t done it already, go to the Pro Bowl site and vote every Buccaneer into the Pro Bowl. So far, Ronde Barber is leading the free safety vote. Everyone says it’s just a popularity contest, which is fine since being popular is more important than ANYTHING.
