Bucs first-round draft pick returned to the practice field on Thursday, for a practice that was open to the media.
A huge sigh of relief can be had for the Buccaneers coaching staff and fans alike. Vea’s return to practice is a giant leap towards him playing in his first NFL game, whether or not it is this Monday or not, is still in question.
For those who were in attendance at the Advent Heath Training Facility, Vea’s return was a great thing to see as well as the return of the Veteran CB Brent Grimes. Defensive coordinator Mike Smith believes that whenever Vea is able to play that he should be an instant impact on the defensive line. Let’s just hope it’s sooner rather than later.
