Description: Frustrated with his contract situation, Buccaneers LB Barrett Ruud considered walking out of training camp. SOURCE: ST. PETERSBURG TIMES
Insight: Ruud was reportedly "furious" with the lack of contract talks and it only got worse when OL Donald Penn inked an extension. Playing with a chip on his shoulder, we expect Ruud to have a big year entering free agency in 2011.

Description: According to the Tampa Tribune, Ruud had this to say about the knee injury he suffered Sunday: "It's a day-to-day thing, but I feel like I should be ready. A little soreness is no problem and that's what I've got right now."
Insight: It would definitely be good for IDP owners if Ruud is available this weekend against the Panthers. (SportsBuff.com)
 
Questionable10/6/2008 9:28:00 AM
Description: The Orlando Sentinel reports that the team is very concerned about the right knee sprain Ruud suffered in Sunday's loss to the Broncos. Ruud, the team's leading tackler, was replaced by Adam Hayward.
Insight: Losing Ruud would certainly hurt some IDP lineups. We'll keep an eye on further reports, but at this point you should plan on not having him available for at least Week 6. (SportsBuff.com)
