Bucs Punter Bidwell Could Be Gone for the Year

The Bucs may have lost punter Josh Bidwell for the season reports Pro Football Talk.com:

The Bucs have a preseason game on Saturday, but they don’t currently have someone able to punt for them.

Long-time starter Josh Bidwell could miss the rest of the season because of a hip problem that has him in great pain. He is scheduled for further tests to evaluate the situation.

While it would be fun to see Tampa go for it on fourth down every series like they were playing Madden, the team is scrambling to find someone to fill Bidwell’s cleats. Two punters will tryout Thursday.

Bidwell’s injury means that Tampa could have a brand new kicking combo this year.

Kicker Matt Bryant has a hamstring injury, and is at risk of losing his job to free agent addition Mike Nugent.
