Buccaneers Injury Update: Carl Nicks Practicing, Jeremy Trueblood Still Out

The Buccaneers are looking to improve to 2-0 against the Giants this week, but they may have to do it without right tackle Jeremy Trueblood. The massive offensive lineman was once again on the sidelines riding a bike during Friday's practice in Tampa. He's been dealing with a sprained right ankle, a key injury for a lineman who's forced to plant and pivot on the outside. Trueblood has become a veteran mainstay at the tackle position, and his experience would certainly come in handy against the dynamic New York pass rush. If he's unable to go, Demar Dotson, a fourth-year backup, would likely get the start at tackle.

It wasn't all bad news along the offensive front, as guard Carl Nicks returned to practice and appeared "good to go," according to Tom Krasniqi of 620 WDAE. Nicks had been dealing with a toe injury.
