Bucs' Jeremy Trueblood gets first-team reps at right guard

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

After losing his starting right tackle job, Jeremy Trueblood is now working out at right guard.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, still in search for a replacement right guard for the injured Davin Joseph, turned to former right tackle Jeremy Trueblood on Wednesday.

Trueblood, who lost his starting right tackle job to Demar Dotson earlier this season, took first-team repetitions at right guard during Wednesday's practice. Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano said Trueblood as well as Ted Larsen and Jamon Meredith are in the mix to start there on Sunday.

While the 6'8 Trueblood has spent his NFL career playing tackle, he did have the benefit of playing extensively next to the Pro Bowler Josesph. Trueblood said that experience helped him as he tried to emulate some of the little things he picked up from Joseph.

Even still, the switch inside is a huge change for Trueblood who said he hasn't played guard since his high school days. While it appears he will be given a chance to win the job, Trueblood called the switch to guard a "work in progress."
