Daily Bucs Links 11/2/11 - Legarrette Blount the every-down back

Blount will return as an every down back this week vs. Saints | tampabay.com & St. Petersburg Times

Another concern: Blount's coming back from an injury, and the Bucs are increasing his workload.

NFL Mid Season all underrated team | Razz Report Blog
I missed this when it came out, but Brian Price made Razzano's All-Underrated team. I like Price, and he's played well, but he's mostly been impressive because he's still coming back from an injury.
