Bucs Injury Update: Amobi Okoye's Knee Worries Greg Schiano

Tampa Bay Bucs defensive tackle Amobi Okoye continues to be limited in his preseason participation because of an injured knee, according to NBC Sports. Okoye's knee has Bucss coach Greg Schiano concerned, and the coach did not sound optimistic when talking to the Tampa Bay Times.

"He has a history with that knee," Schiano said. "We knew when we decided to (sign him) that there was a chance that it was going to have to be handled ... The way he practices, how much he practices -- we are kind of just trying to feel our way through it, see what he can and can’t do."

Okoye played in Tampa Bay's first preseason game, but has missed the following two. He remains limited in practice as well. Okoye remains on the second team on the Bucs depth chart, behind Gerald McCoy and Roy Miller. He is slated to make $2 million this season.
