After missing two games due to a pelvic injury, the Bucs placed defensive tackle Brian Price on injured reserve.
Defensive tackle Brian Price’s rookie campaign will be ending prematurely. Due to a pelvic fractuce the Tampa Bay Buccaneers placed Price on injured reserve.

Price, who was a second-round pick (35th overall) out of UCLA in the 2010 NFL Draft, missed the last two games because of a pelvic injury. The 6-foot-1, 303-pound Price had six tackles with one tackle for a loss in five games this season.

The Buccaneers now have three defensive tackles on the roster with Gerald McCoy, Roy Miller, and Ryan Sims. Sims and newly acquired Alex Magee, who can play defense tackle and end, will now see more snaps with Price out for the season.

    I wonder about the mentality of some boarders who, almost any time some team dumps an old or injured player, jump on the 'let's get ......'. Now it's Merriman who, thankfully, has been picked up by a really desperate team. Yesterday I was strong-armed into going to a garage sale with she who cannot be denied and, looking at all those old Floridians grabbing up somebody's rejected junk it dawned on me - ah - NFL garage sales! Now I understand.

    This sucks. To me, Price looked better than McCoy in training camp when they were both healthy. I don't think Price has been 100% healthy for any game this year. I can't wait until you guys see a healthy Price suit up for a regular season game next year. Trust me, you will enjoy what you see.

    D-linemen take a couple of years to really develop. Remember, everyone told us this in an attempt to avoid the inevitable short-term let-down. Culpepper called it, Sapp called it.... Definitely a setback for Price, but get him on the shelf NOW and have him completely health by next year's training camp. I believe McCoy is making the slow, steady progression that is to be expected. He appears to be handling the stress well overall also. All this youth is going to result in the roller coaster ride we're on, but damn, ain't it fun so far? Go Bucs!

    The Bucs have signed rookie DL AL Woods off the Steelers practice squad

    I'm just going to pretend Mike Williams was our 2nd round pick! :p So we still had a good draft and next year Price will just be like any extra draft pick.

    Well the Texans just released Adewale Ogunleye who is a good pass rusher. Sure he is not the same as he was when he was with the Dolphins but he is probably better than Kyle Moore. Or we could pick up Shawn Merriman.

    Hey! We screwed up here! This was why Price was still available in the early second round. We didn't do our home work. Okay so lets say we did? So get heeled Price and be ready for next year. I am not writing you off yet Price. You have a good hard core way to get by all of this. Go Bucs!

    Remember our fourth round pick years ago, DT Moore, out of Maryland, who we cut this year to keep Sims? If he has not been picked up by another team we need to get him back here now before we take on Carolina again. He already knows the system and had gotten himself into good shape before he was cut. He always had the good strength and physical attributes to be a standout defensive lineman in the NFL. His drawback was he was not motivated to work hard which was why we could get him as a prospect in the 4th round. However, he had overcome that drawback this year and just got cut when the Bucs wanted to retain some experience to help the new high draft picks. Get Moore back and we'll be just fine til Price gets back next year.

    owlykat: Your suggestion makes much more sense than dealing with a has-been like Merriman who once had a cool sack dance but hurt himself and hasn't been anything since.
  • avatar


    Agreed - thought Moore outplayed Sims in preseason. Can't find him, not sure where he is.
  • avatar

    apparently price had a pelvic fracture.. not good.
  • avatar


    Well that explains why Simms is still on the roster. When Morris announced his final 52 September I couldn't understand why he'd keep Simms with all the young talent at DT. Now I see. I believe the D-line is slowly improving game to game. No fear in the defenses' development.Maybe there's a team out there that will have Cowher, Merriman, Haynesworth, and maybe even Moss on it next year; it just won't be the Bucs. They keep saying and showing their desire to draft and develop young players. Thank the Lord!!

    Price had a rough time physically ever since his arrival. Hopefully he will use this time to rehab and make his body NFL ready for next season. I think both Price and McCoy got a wake up call as to what is required in the trenches in the NFL. I look for both of them to make huge strides in the future. GO BUCS !!!!!

    Let's hope his injuries are not chronic. He gets time to rest, heal, and condition himself for next season.
  • avatar

    And that ladies and gentlemen makes room for Merriman. Maybe they can see if Lee can play DT, joking kinda. Kid has a mean streak.
  • avatar


    I hope this paves the way for the Bucs to claim Shawn Merriman. I think he can be an impact pass rusher and leader of our defense. Someone with alittle Sapp in him.
  • avatar


    Yes, we definitely need Merriman. A player that hasn't been healthy or productive for years and was only ever able to back-up his (Sapp-like) mouth while taking 'Roids...
  • avatar


    You said it best nwinters40. Merriman hasn't done anything in years and is still living off of his self-proclaimed, but faded highlight reel. We need a player like his Nickerson-like personality......but not him.

    I certainly wouldn't say "the top of our draft hasn't worked out" YET. It IS disappointing that Price has been placed on IR, but I think he showed he is going to be very good, before he was benched by the injury. I also believe that McCoy will become a very good DT as he develops.
  • avatar


    Hate to read news like this on any of our developing players but he started to the off on an bad note, not to surprising.
  • avatar

    I called this last night. I cannot believe it. what a dissapointment. The top of our draft really did not pan out. Thank goodness Williams, Benn and Grimm have been good.
