After suffering a concussion that forced him to miss a week of practice and the Bucs’ Week 9 match-up with the New Orleans Saints this past Sunday, left guard Ali Marpet returned to practice on Wednesday.

In his post-practice press conference, head coach Bruce Arians gave an update on Marpet’s status as the Bucs look ahead to another divisional game against the Carolina Panthers this week.

“Ali’s in the final phases of the (concussion) protocol,” Arians said. “We’ll wait and see to evaluate but it looks like he came out fine. We’ll wait to see if he gets any recurring headaches.”

Offensive lineman Joe Haeg filled in for Marpet on Sunday, allowing three quarterback hits, four hurries and seven pressures in his lone start.

I guess we saw how valuable Marpet was/is to the offensive line and Brady’s continued good health and remaining upright. We need ya big fella! Glad ur healing up!

Hopefully, Marpet will be back Sunday, although were a dozen other problems than guard.
