Bucs’ OL practices with Zuttah at LG, Joseph absent

It appears as though another changing of the guards may be in the offing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

At practice Wednesday, Ted Larsen centered for quarterback Mike Glennon while Jeremy Zuttah worked at left guard and Gabe Carimi at right guard.

Absent from the workout was starting right guard Davin Joseph, who has struggled this year while bouncing back from a knee injury that wiped out his 2012 season.

The move would mark the third change at left guard this year for the Bucs. Carimi started the first two games there while starter Carl Nicks recovered from a MRSA infection.

Nicks suffered a reoccurrence of that infection a week ago. That forced him to miss the Bucs’ 31-20 loss Sunday against Philadelphia, in which Larsen played left guard.

Using Larsen at center and Zuttah at left guard would not represent a new alignment for the Bucs. The team used that grouping for nine games last year after Nicks went down with a season-ending left big toe injury.

Carimi, meanwhile, is no stranger to right guard. He played there last season a couple of games while with the Chicago Bears.
