The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are welcoming running back Charles Sims to the backfield committee.
The team activated the rookie from the injured reserve-designated to return list Saturday. It is uncertain if he will play Sunday.
With Doug Martin doubtful due to an ankle injury, Sims could share some of the load with Bobby Rainey, who will likely get most of the backfield work as the team eases the rookie back into game shape.
The story goes on to say the Bucs lavishly glowed about Sims' potential during the offseason before the running back suffered an ankle injury that required surgery. This was pretty much expected news all week and Sims was a popular pickup for owners needing help at RB. Rainey shapes up to be the better play, and we figure Sims in the 10-12 range for touches. It's a very good matchup, but both backs are a bit tough to trust given the Tampa offense.
