The Buccaneers today have unveiled their most recent depth chart, and it contains one very surprising move.
Running back Carnell Williams is listed as the starter, meaning he'll be the back to kick-start the three-man rotation the team plans to use. Derrick Ward is listed No. 2 and Earnest Graham is listed third.
Coaches revealed their plan for using the trio in the third preseason game. They used Williams as the starter for two series, followed by Ward for two series and Graham for one. After that, the rotation begins again.
Coach Raheem Morris said that "2-2-1" format will continue to be used during the regular season, which begins Sunday at home against the Cowboys.
Williams' place atop the depth chart is notable because of his two surgically-repaired knees.
