Officials have approved Raymond James Stadium for Week 2 and the NFL agreed the Buccaneers and Bears will play as scheduled Sunday in Tampa. Now the Bucs have to get all their players and coaches to reassemble in Tampa to prepare for the game. The Bucs ownership had chartered five small planes Saturday to take 130 football and business staff members, players, coaches and their families to Charlotte. However, many players were scattered throughout the country. Quarterback Jameis Winston was at his family home in Alabama. Some players will have to rely on commercial airline carriers to get to Tampa, others may need charters.
Still others could have to navigate highways strewn with debris from the storm.
