With the Buccaneers preparing for hot-handed Eagles running back Bryce Brown, Tampa Bays primary run-stopping defensive lineman was nowhere near the practice field for the second straight day.
Defensive tackle Roy Miller suffered a head injury against the Broncos and has not been cleared to return to practice, let alone play on Sunday.
Coach Greg Schiano wouldnt confirm whether Miller suffered a concussion, but said he is being evaluated by the teams medical staff according to guidelines established by the NFL for head injuries.
Theres a whole protocol that our trainers and doctors go through, Schiano said. I dont know exactly where we stand. . . Ill do whatever they tell us. If hes available, (hell play). Hes logged some real equity in this system and in what we do, so I think hed be fine to go out there and crank it up (if hes cleared).
Brown has rushed for 347 yards in his first two starts, coming in the Eagles past two games. Its the second-highest total in consecutive starts for an Eagles running back in franchise history. Source: Tampa Bay Times Attached Thumbnails

Bryce Brown has been a lighting rod for the running game and the Eagles may just want to showcase him as well.
“Vick now has missed three...
Get it? Andrew Hawkins? Hawkin’? Eagles? So much pun, so little time. The truth of the matter is it’s playoff time and we all know you’re most likely a strong enough team or else you wouldn’t be here. But injuries can always happen. It’s why I carry around a first aid kit where ever I go and have learned to make splints out of those umbrella sticks found in...
