Coach Bruce Arians told reporters on Monday that Leonard Fournette is the team’s new “nickel” running back.
The story said on Sunday against the Raiders, Fournette participated in 40 snaps, a 56-percent rate. Fournette rushed for 50 yards on 11 carries, and he added 47 receiving yards on six catches. McCoy, in contrast, was the only non-quarterback on either team who didn’t play at all. And, McCoy was the only running back on any team who dressed but didn’t play in any of the 13 Week 7 games played so far, the story pointed out. It's possible the Bucs look to trade McCoy. Vaughn is a similar back and could also serve as the nickel back.
