    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have suffered their first setback of the offseason as fullback Byron Storer has suffered what the team is calling "a significant setback'' in his attempt to come back from the season-ending knee injury he suffered last Oct. 12 against Carolina. Neither the Bucs nor Storer's agent would offer up details of the latest injury, but head coach Raheem Morris said the setback is such that he has no idea when Storer will return. "I don't want to tell you exactly what it is because I don't know,'' Morris said of Storer's injury. "It's a major setback and he won't be back for a significant amount of time.'' The loss last year of Storer, who tore his right anterior cruciate ligament, forced lead back Earnest Graham to eventually take snaps at fullback as a replacement for both Storer and B.J. Askew.
