Talk about adding injury to insult.
Morris wasn't ready to rule out either player for Sunday's game against the NFC South rival New Orleans Saints, and he wouldn't speculate on his star running back until seeing more of him this week.
"I don't want to rule him out. But I'm not looking at him to do whatever," Morris said of Blount, who sat out most of the second half at San Francisco. "It is what it is. It'll be next man up, or he'll be ready to go and he'll play and practice for us."
McCoy's backup is Frank Okam, although Morris said rookie defensive end Da'Quan Bowers could wind up playing some inside, too.
With McCoy's status in doubt, the Bucs made a couple of moves Monday, waiving tight end Collin Franklin and promoting defensive end George Johnson from the practice squad to the active roster. Devin Holland, a backup safety who played mostly on special teams, was placed on season-ending injured reserve with a back injury.
