The Buccaneers will start training camp Friday, and it appears RB Cadillac Williams could be ready after coming off a left knee injury.
Williams is expected to be among the 80 players cleared by the team, according to the St. Petersburg Times:
- Williams still has to clear a final hurdle by passing an entrance physical after reporting Friday at One Buc Place. The Bucs could buy Williams more time by placing him on the active Physically Unable to Perform list. That would enable Williams to attend meetings, but he wouldn’t be able to practice. A player on the active PUP list counts against the 80-man roster but can be removed from the list at any time during the camp.
