Mack Loses Appeal, Hamilton Promoted

TAMPA -Bucs rookie cornerback Elbert Mack lost his appeal and will be suspended for this week’s game against the Bears.
Mack left his feet and went helmet-to-helmet with Falcons QB Matt Ryan, whose helmet was knocked off by the impact, in Sunday’s game at Raymond James Stadium. It was the second time Mack illegally hit a quarterback in three games. He was fined for a similar blow in the Bucs preseason finale against Houston.
Mack’s one-week suspension is without pay.
With Mack out, the Bucs promoted CB Marcus Hamilton from the practice squad. Hamilton may dress, but is not likely to see much action unless Aqib Talib has a re-occurrence of the hamstring problem that knocked him out of last week’s game, or some other corner goes down.
Talib practiced Friday, along with LB Derrick Brooks (hamstring) and DE Gaines Adams (abdomen). WR Joey Galloway did not practice, so his chances of playing look pretty slim, but Coach Jon Gruden said he’s holding out hope and will wait until Sunday to make a call.
