The Bucs have placed FB B.j. Askew on the non-football injury list a week after he was involved in what the team called a minor car accident. Askew will remain there for the duration of the season.
Based on additional information we've learned, it turns out Askew's accident, in which he was rear-ended, was worse than originally known. As a result, Askew has been dealing with neck and back pain that is not improving, causing the team to make today's roster move. In fact, the car he was driving sustained significant damage and may have been a total loss. Askew should recover in the long term, but as of now, he's not in any shape to play football.
FoxSports: Yes, Bucs RB Cadillac Williams will be active, but he
may not get more than a few carries. It depends on how he feels.
Veteran RB Warrick Dunn should get the bulk of the work with FB
B.j. Askew getting some short-yardage work. Fumbling rookie
Clifton Smith should play, but it doesn't look like Noah Herron
will be active.
