Faine expects to return for Bucs this week

A bit of good news for the Buccaneers on the injury front. Center Jeff Faine expects to play this week.

Faine has missed four games due to a triceps injury, and Sean Mahan has filled in. There’s a big drop-off from Faine to Mahan, and that could be part of the reason Tampa Bay’s running game hasn’t produced a great deal.
