Buccaneers CB Eric Wright Back From Suspension, Might Not Play In Finale
After serving out a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Eric Wright is eligible to suit up in Sunday's finale at Atlanta.
That doesn't mean he'll play.
"He is back,'' Bucs coach Greg Schiano said Monday, "but I can't tell you right now without getting on the field and seeing where he is and formulating a plan. I think he'll be in shape. I've got to see what's the best thing for our football team, which I'm not sure of right now.''
The Bucs were 6-5 when Wright was suspended without pay on the day following a 24-23 home loss to the Falcons. That setback triggered a five-game tailspin that has ensured the team a losing record for the third time in the past four seasons.
"I don't think conditioning will be the issue,'' Schiano said, "but being in football shape is a little different.''
