Aaron Kromer Gives Injury Update, Talks Tampa Defense
 
1 Attachment(s)
Opening statement: “At practice today, Jimmy Graham was limited. David Hawthorne did not practice. Jahri Evans was full. The rest of these guys were full: Jabari Greer, Jonathan Casillas, Travaris Cadet, Turk McBride and Lance Moore.”

How much of a strain would not having Jimmy Graham available put on the offense?

“Well, you always want to have your best players so we hope we’re going to have him. If we don’t, then we just have to adjust accordingly trying to get our best players on the field, using different personnel groups and ways to get other guys the ball.”

Does it change what you can do or what you want to do if you don’t have him?

“Jimmy Graham is a mismatch positionally. When you don’t have him, you have to find your best bet and your best other options and that’s what our challenge will be if Jimmy is not ready.”

David Thomas appears most likely to step up, how has been for you guys?

“David, since he got here, has played a big role in many positions. He has lined up in the backfield as a fullback, he’s lined up at tight end, he’s lined up split out tight end. He’s done a lot of things. He is a jack of all trades. If that’s the case (Graham not playing), then he needs to step up.”

Is Daniel Graham capable of being a receiver? Is he just a blocker for you guys?

“So far, he has been mainly a blocker. In a situation like this, he is capable and we will have to use him if that comes down to it.”

Is Jimmy Graham a guy that you know what to expect from him? Or is he a guy that still has to practice?

“Jimmy is mentally ready and he is a very tough guy. Pain doesn’t affect him. You saw him playing after he hurt his ankle in the game. Those kinds of things won’t affect Jimmy Graham.”

Greer was full go in practice and it looks like we may see Vilma play!

Greer is highly important to this defense.

They should use Jimmy only as needed, but it is a division game.
