Buccaneers RB Charles Sims has been limited at practice this week, and he is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. But Sims and coach Lovie Smith expect the 6-foot, 213-pound Houston native to make his NFL debut Sunday at Raymond James Stadium.
"I've been excited about him since we drafted him," Smith said. "If we have him up this week, I'll be pretty excited to see exactly what he can do. Eventually he's going to help us win a lot of games."
The Bucs are bringing Sims along slowly, so we're expecting Bobby Rainey to get most of the touches out of the Tampa backfield in a nice matchup against the Falcons. Sims probably won't see a big workload, but he could be in line for 6-8 touches assuming Rainey stays healthy.
