Buccaneers Training Camp: Day Nine Recap

USA TODAY Sports

Everything you need to know about today's Tampa Bay Buccaneers training camp practice. Injuries, position battles and more.

Injuries

Position Battles

  • Chris Owusu and Rashaan Melvin showed up repeatedly in the practice tweets. Owusu had a bunch of big catches and two touchdowns, while Rashaan Melvin had three pass breakups according to Pewter Report. They're going to get some playing time this year.
  • Mike James continued to get a lot of work, per JoeBucsFan. He's likely to win the backup running back job.
  • The front office is impressed with Donald Penn's conditioning, notes Jenna Laine.
  • Pewter Report notes that Derek Dimke is putting some heat on Lawrence Tynes. I wouldn't be surprised if Dimke wins the placekicker battle, really.

Practice Notes

  • A contingent of Buccaneers will travel to Canton for Warren Sapp's Hall of Fame induction, per Rick Brown.
  • Chris Owusu continued his strong play with a 57-yard touchdown, according to Rick Brown. He's going to play a role this year.
  • Greg Schiano had the losing unit of some third-down periods do push-ups and then...did some push-ups himself? That's what Rick Brown says, at least. And then the reporters did some push-ups during the press conference, says Jenna Laine. Hah!
  • The Bucs once again practiced attacking the kneeldown, according to Cummings. That isn't going away.
