Bucs show unity to wrap up camp

Saturday, August 16, 2003

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were so eager to break training camp Friday that the whole team sprinted off the field together.

The defending Super Bowl champions were on a bus to Tampa less than an hour after the morning workout ended. It was the end of the Bucs' 28-day stay at Disney's Wide World of Sports complex.

"Great training camp, can't wait to get home to see my family," Bucs quarterback Brad Johnson said as he led teammates off the field.

The Buccaneers had 18 practice days at the Disney complex and 31 sessions, including two practices a day.

The Buccaneers made it through training camp with no significant injuries.

Tackles Kenyatta Walker and Cornell Green, recovering from ankle sprains, are expected to play Monday at St. Louis. Keyshawn Johnson, out of practice Thursday because of a stomach ailment, was back Friday.

The Bucs will resume practice at the team headquarters in Tampa and work out only once a day.
