If you were watching the Bucs-Lions game this past Sunday, you probably saw Buccaneer defensive tackle Brian Price go down with what looked like a nasty injury. It appeared to be a hamstring injury, and Price was in considerable pain.
As it turns out, the Bucs are saying that Price’s injury was the result of cramping on a hot day. He had surgery done in his pelvic area last year, so discomfort and pain in that area is apparently expected, but the hot weather and fatigue further exasperated the issue.
Raheem Morris has said that Price is “day-to-day”, and that he’s expected to work out with the team this week and start against the Vikings this weekend. He could theoretically be back in practice as early as Wednesday, but we’ll have to see.
Price certainly made his presence felt during last week’s game, so here’s hoping he’s back up to full strength as quickly as possible. The Bucs’ defense needs all the help they can get.
