Buccaneers' J.R. Sweezy: Doesn't partake in Monday practice
Sweezy (back) did not participate in Monday's practice, the first session he was eligible to partake in after spending six weeks on the PUP list, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The offseason acquisition was inked to a deal that includes $14.5 million guaranteed to man the left guard spot, but he's yet to even take part in a practice with his new team. Sweezy's next opportunity to take the field will come Wednesday, but given the delicate nature of the herniated disk surgery that he underwent this summer, the Bucs could well err on the side of caution and delay his debut further. As per NFL rules, the team has a three-week period to decide whether or not to officially activate Sweezy or place him on season-ending injured reserve.
