Bucs' Stocker out with injury

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie tight end Luke Stocker will be sidelined at least two weeks because of a right hip injury.

The fourth-round selection from Tennessee said Saturday that his status is "week to week." He jammed the hip during the first day of training camp Friday.

Tampa Bay coach Raheem Morris expects Stocker to be out a minimum of two weeks.

The Bucs completed the signing of all their draft picks from this year by reaching a deal with running back Allen Bradford, who was taken in the sixth round.

Also, the Tampa Bay players voted unanimously Friday night in favor of union recertification. Reconstituting the union was a condition to concluding the collective bargaining agreement that was recently reached.
