Buccaneers strong safety Sabby Piscitell isn’t the only player in coach Raheem Morris’s doghouse.
Morris says veteran running back Derrick Ward is out of shape, and he says that if Ward is unhappy with his place on the depth chart, that’s his problem.
“In ’09 we weren’t a very good football team. We weren’t a very good organized football team as far as our running game. We all struggled,” Morris said. “He was a guy that was a part of it. He went out there and he probably didn’t get the holes that he wanted. Whatever the reasons were – nobody cares. It is your job to go out there and get it done. That is the same thing I’d tell Sabby. He feels bad about not being a starter. He feels bad because he feels like he was unjustly done, and nobody really cares.”
Last year Ward was the Bucs’ No. 2 running back, but Kareem Huggins has drawn even with Ward on the depth chart. It wouldn’t be surprising to see Ward get cut before the regular season starts.
