Bucs RB Huggins could get more work

St. Petersburg Times - [Full Article]

Following up in the previous post about the plans to use additional personnel on offense this weekend, it's clear after talking to coach Raheem Morris this afternoon that the Bucs plan to abide by a less-is-more approach on offense.

Take their handling of Kareem Huggins' situation, for example.

The coaching staff clearly second guessed its decision not to use Huggins on offense against the Browns, probably because he still has some weaknesses in his game. But they're apparently willing to live with them.

"You sit down as a coaching staff and you want to do something, you say you’re going to do it, you have the confidence in Kareem," Morris said. "It’s easy to say and harder to (show) it when you get in the game. But then you look back at the game and you start to relax. You just have to go out there and let the young man play. That will be something we look forward to doing this week, getting better as a coaching staff and putting the young man in that situation where he’s going to run the ball and not being worried about protection so much.

"The young man knows it. Just throw him out there and let him do it. He’s proven he can do it in the preseason . . . You have to play the other guys."
