Buccaneers getting too old?

Almost overnight, it seems as if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have gotten old at key positions.

Wide receiver Joey Galloway is out Sunday due to a foot injury. Galloway missed almost all of training camp with a stained groin that was slow to heal.

Quarterback Jeff Garcia battled a calf strain throughout training camp that sidelined him weeks, only to sprain his ankle once he returned. Since, Garcia has been benched.

And last week, Buccaneers linebacker Derrick Brooks fought through a strained hamstring to start his 193rd consecutive game; though scouts said he was not overly effective and appeared slowed. Brooks played the first series, then rotated in and out of the lineup for the remainder of the game.

Tampa is young in many spots, and is positioned well for future seasons. But many of its franchise’s main faces are getting gray in the beard.
