TAMPA – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have decided to shuffle the pieces of their offensive line in an effort to compensate for the loss of Pro Bowl left guard Carl Nicks.
With Nicks on injured reserve the Bucs have decided to move center Jeremy Zuttah to left guard and start Ted Larsen at center.
The Bucs spent the week working on several options in an attempt to fill the gaping hole left by the loss of Nicks, who is lost for the year with a torn plantar plate in his left big toe.
For Zuttah the move to left guard is nothing new. He has made 30 of his 51 starts at that position since joining the Bucs as a third-round selection out of Rutgers in 2008.
Larsen, meanwhile, makes his 19th start since coming to the Bucs as a waiver pick-up in September, 2010. Larsen has made the bulk of his starts at left guard, but the Bucs have long considered him as an option at center.
In addition to announcing the changes to their offensive line the Bucs also scratched running back Michael Smith, defensive back Keith Tandy, linebackers Najee Goode and Jacob Cutrera, guard Roger Allen and receiver Chris Owusu from the lineup for Sunday’s game.
