10 News Sports Anchor Dave Wirth weighs in on the Bucs' last preseason game, Wednesday at Washington, for JoeBucsFan.com.
The goal for the Bucs' final preseason game, is very clear: no more injuries, especially for the starters.
The Bucs are still reeling from the loss of Pro Bowl guard Davin Joseph. They just don't have the depth to absorb many more injuries from the starters, and to lose someone like Joseph in a pre-season game, really hurts...
Now the Bucs will probably be looking at Joseph's replacement, Ted Larsen in this game... but not for too long.
What the coaching staff will be looking at in the game against the Redskins is competition for those backup spots, which could become very important and important very quickly. I'm sure no one was figuring Ted Larsen would be starting again this soon.
And look for the local guy, cornberback Leonard Johnson from Largo High School, to make the 53 man roster. He's been that impressive in the preseason.
