      Back injury to sideline Akeem Spence for 'months'Greg Auman,      Times Staff Writer Sunday, August 2, 2015 7:28pmThe back injury that has sidelined Bucs defensive tackle Akeem Spence at the start of training camp required surgery last month and is serious enough that it will keep him from playing at the start of the season."I'm probably a couple more months away," Spence said after watching Sunday's practice at One Buc Place, six weeks before the season starts on Sept. 13 against the Titans.Spence said he was lifting weights and it "caused something in my back to slip," requiring surgery on July 2. His timetable for recovery would make him a candidate for the NFL's physically unable to perform list, which would keep him from taking up a spot on the 53-man roster but wouldn't allow him to play until after the first six games of the season.Spence said the surgery removed  his back that was "pressing on the nerves in my leg, causing pain." Asked if the back injury was significant enough to keep him from playing at all this season, Spence said he was hopeful it wouldn't."I'll probably shoot for October or something like that," he said. "I'm not sure. ... I'm four weeks into rehab. I'm feeling well, walking around."murph_zpspkg23jc1.png

      At least we “appeared” deep at DT. There is the reason for Bowers though.

      McCoy, McDonald, Melton, and Bowers is a fine enough rotation at DT especially if Gholston can move inside some as well.

      Tony McDaniel just unexpectedly came available from the Seahawks today. L&L should be on that and see if Clint McDonald can coax his friend down to Tampa.

      He was released due to the contract just signed by Wilson according to the NFL Network.

      I guess Michael Bennett won't be getting a raise.

      Been there, and the surgery and rehab, while better than the incredible pain when that happens, is a long process, I would think even for an athlete.I hope he's on the mend and can put it behind him.

      I don't think he has to clear waivers, so he is a free agent right now. I cant think of any reason to sign with the Bucs when he could sign with a contender.
