Schiano expresses “hope” that Wright has overcome health issue


Buccaneers cornerback Eric Wright’s health condition, whatever it was, apparently has cleared up, and it’s not expected to return.

Coach Greg Schiano confirmed on Wednesday that Wright was suffering from, well, something.

“Without getting into real particulars, it was a non-football related health thing,” Schiano said via, “and he was very good at communicating where he was and how he was dealing with and the thing that excites me is he did quite a bit yesterday and again today, he’s getting better.  He did well.  He made some plays out there today.  I’m excited, that’s encouraging.”

Asked whether Wright’s condition is now a thing of the past, Schiano said, “I hope so.”

This implies that, whatever it was, it could return.  But don’t count on anyone saying what it was.

Whatever it was.

    Wow is Wright infected by a ghost or a new disease created by the government? Why can’t he say? Or why didn’t he make something up so the media is not on his case?

    hmmmm…what kind of illness embarrasses one enough that they just will not talk about it? Give up? Certain sexually transmitted diseases of course.

    I’m guessing it was a serious STD…

    I’m also glad the Lions let Tampa overpay for him.

    He is exactly what this team needs right now as they were supremely lacking discipline.

    Personally I find it pretty awesome he doesnt blab his players medical issues to the media.

    It could also potentially be something more serious like cancer or leukemia, or at least a scare. Not something you would want to mention to the public necessarily
