TAMPA, Fla. -- Cadillac Williams isn’t at One Buccaneer place, but that doesn’t mean the veteran running back is out the door just yet.

Tampa Bay coach Raheem Morris just said there remains a possibility that the free-agent running back could return to the Bucs.

“We like him in our building,’’ Morris said. “He’s had a bunch of good years of service. I hope we get more out of him.’’

Williams previously has said he’d be interested in returning to Tampa Bay, but wanted to test the free-agent market. The Bucs still have room for him, even though Williams lost his starting job to rookie LeGarrette Blount last season.

After the switch, Williams thrived as a third-down back. The Bucs don’t have an heir apparent for that role at the moment.

There was some other news from Saturday afternoon’s practice
  • Rookie tight end Luke Stocker has a hip injury that could force him to miss several weeks of training camp. Stocker watched practice from the sidelines while standing on crutches.
  • Morris has a name for defensive end Da'Quan Bower’s pass-rushing stance -- “The Crouching Tiger’’.
  • Morris had a great quote on how tight end Kellen Winslow can be his own worst critic. “Kellen’s never satisfied. He takes his playbook into the whirlpool.’’
  • Perhaps the highlight of Saturday’s practice was when linebacker Geno Hayes intercepted a pass and returned it for what probably would have been a touchdown, although no tackling was allowed.
