Buccaneers coach Todd Bowles said that DL Akiem Hicks (foot) won't play in Week 3.Adam Schefter reported that Hicks tore the plantar fascia in his foot and is expected to miss a month. Josh Wells (calf), who gave way to third tackle Brandon Walton in Tampa's Week 2 win over the Saints, also won't play in Week 3 per Bowles. Bowles made the comments on his radio show. It's possible one or both of these players wind up on injured reserve.
Loved me some Akeem Hicks, but his body is just not able to hold up to the beating any longer. I totally get why a contender would risk it, but Chicago just wasn't the right fit for him any longer. Best of luck to the big man!!
