Following a 10-6 season in 2010, Raheem Morris nicknamed the Buccaneers “Youngry” because of their talented stock of up-and-comers.

Earnest Graham is finished for the year with a torn Achilles’ tendon, but with Tampa having a Week 8 bye, it should give LeGarrette Blount enough time to get healthy.
