Demar Dotson finished this prior season injured without a clear timetable for his return. At the end of July Dotson was granted clearance to return to practice a just a few short weeks later he will take the field tonight for the Buccaneers at his usual position of right tackle per Rick Stroud of the Times.

The Buccaneers offensive line gets it’s longest tenured player back and not a minute too soon as the team prepares for the season. Dotston graded out as the Buccaneers top offensive lineman a year ago and his return helps solidify a new look offensive line that the team hopes will take a big step forward as a unit in 2018.

Dotson will take the field for the first time while protecting Buccaneers starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick as they take on Marcus Mariota and the Tennessee Titans. Fans should keep an eye on the starting line as their ability to work in unison with one another will be a focal point as the season nears.
