Defensive tackle Brian Price was battling a hamstring injury, Cornerback Myron Lewis suffered from a strain in his abdominal, and Linebacker Dekoda Watson had a tight hamstring. But don’t worry, none of these injuries are cause for concern according to head coach Raheem Morris:
“Minor strains,” Morris called them. “We’re just being precautionary with those guys. We don’t want to create any more problems.”
Besides the injuries to these three rookies, the rest of the first year players performed various drills throughout the day. The Wide Receivers, in particular, showed some flashes of excellence within the first two days of practice. Arrelious Benn and Mike Williams are in line to be the starting receivers in 2010, and are already off to a great start in Tampa.
