Buccaneers Training Camp Recap: Injury updates and position battles

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Day four of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' training camp is in the books.

Injury updates

Position battles

  • Jamon Meredith was taking snaps as the starting right guard with Carl Nicks and Davin Joseph both off the field. Roy Cummings thinks he may have missed a few workouts. Schiano confirmed that he was dealing with a family issue.
  • Meanwhile, Cody Wallace was in with the starting offense at left guard, per Roy Cummings. Ahead of Ted Larsen, then?
  • Cody Grimm was working with the first-team defense with Mark Barron and Ahmad Black dinged up, per JoeBucsFan (said it was Goldson who was out, but later clarified it was Barron). Grimm's the backup strong safety, so that makes sense.
  • Schiano had some praise for Dekoda Watson, his 'fire' and his improved understanding of the defense.

Practice notes

  • The Bucs spent most of their time on individual drills and fundamentals, according to Roy Cummings.
  • JoeBucsFan thought the quarterbacks looked sharp.
  • We have a new trick play to complain about: Mike Williams throwing off an end-around. Second time in three days JoeBucsFan saw that.
  • Another one from JoeBucsFan: the practice was crisp and intense, and he thinks the coaches may have gotten into the players for a lack of intensity.
  • Mike Glennon has a tendency to overthrow receivers, according to Roy Cummings. That sounds familiar.
  • The Bucs have most of their second- and third-down offense installed, Schiano said. They're putting an extra focus on two minute situations on both sides of the ball.
