Buccaneers end training camp with lightning

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers ended their training camp the way they started it: lightning. Despite the shortened practice, we still have a few good notes.

Good news: cornerbacks Rashaan Melvin and Keith Lewis returned to the practice field, per Greg Auman.

Bad news: Roy Cummings notes that DEs Steven Means and Da'Quan Bowers, CB Mike Jenkins and OL J.B. Shugarts continued to sit out practice. Joining them with his ankle in a boot was Charles Sims, who injured himself yesterday on what was said to be a minor injury. That boot is probably precautionary, but given the timing he probably won't be able to play on Saturday.

Position battles

The first-team guards were Oniel Cousins and Patrick Omamehaccording to Roy Cummings. The Bucs really, really seem to want to give Cousins multiple chances to win that starting spot. Omameh seems to be ahead of Jace Daniels now, but they've been rotating so much that I don't know how much to read into that.

The second-team offensive line had Jamon Meredith at left tackle, with Kadeem Edwards and Jace Daniels working at guard, per Greg Auman.

One interesting note is that tight end Cameron Brate again got some time with the first team offense, via Greg Auman. He has been a bit up and down in training camp, but he could genuinely make the roster.
