The injury bug hit Riley Bullough at the wrong time as he was forced to miss the preseason finale. With the former Michigan State linebacker out of the running, the front-runners for the last linebacker spots were Jack Cichy, Cameron Lynch and Nigel Harris.
Last week, Cichy proved he belongs on the team. Making it a big night for both Lynch and Harris. It’s been a back and forth battle, but Lynch will get the nod in the final projection. He was in on a few tackles as the Buccaneers almost held strong goal-line stand in Thursday’s loss to the Jaguars.
