Arrelious Benn (concussion) is not expected to play in Saturday's game against the Cowboys.
Benn was not cleared to practice on Thursday. The Bucs will take another look at him before Saturday night's game, but they won't rush him. Dezmon Briscoe would start opposite Mike Williams if Benn can't go.

Unless you were dropped on your head as a child, this is encouraging news.

Im just disappointed that it took Benn getting hurt just for Dez to get a start.


Thanks for the sig Java!

True.

Benn is a project that is coming along slowly, but the team jumped the gun thinking he is starting caliber currently.

I should've rephrased it...Benn and Dez are both terrible.  Benn has more upside than Dez as Dez should be playing in the arena league.

Hmmm.. I think Benn and Briscoe are better than Williams personally.

Cool story bro.

But unlike you, we watch the Bucs play.

Just guessing they probably wanted the fastest WR they have in there along with Mike.  Although Dez might be a better route runner and better hands, Benn is faster.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

Benn just isn't cutting it...

Briscoe should have been the #2 a long time ago...with Parker in the slot and Stroughter now that he's healthy.  Benn needs to spend all offseason on the jugs machine.

Based on your fantasy football stats?

Briscoe is the most polish route runner we have, supposedly. If you haven't noticed our WR have no been able to get open. I would think a good route runner would be a helpful thing for Freeman.

I would like to see us use Benn in a more non-traditional role. Like a Percy Harvin kind of thing. We do the screen passes. We've attempted deep balls with Benn, I would like to see him catch out of the backfield and maybe even a few running plays. I'm intrigued by his running ability.

Yes I know I would normally blast someone for saying thing like this...
