The Buccaneers were hoping offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford was close to a return.
Instead, there’s no way to know when he’ll be back.
Via Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com, the team has given Tedford an indefinite leave of absence.
Tedford had a heart procedure before the start of the season, but had returned to work on a limited basis. He’s been around the team, but quarterbacks coach Marcus Arroyo had called the plays the first three games.
Coach Lovie Smith had said that Tedford hadn’t experienced any setbacks, but he clearly needs more time to get himself well.
