NFL Rumors: Buccaneers Running Back Frustrated With Lack Of Carries

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers came back in the final minute of regulation to take down the Los Angeles Rams in Week 9, effectively keeping their season alive, as they now find themselves in a two-way tie for first place in the NFC South with the Atlanta Falcons at 4-5. Tom Brady was understandably thrilled following the game, as he kicked off his post-game press conference by saying "that was awesome, that was f**king awesome", but unfortunately, it appears that not everyone in the Buccaneers locker room was as ecstatic about the win as No. 12.

According to CBS Sports, running back Leonard Fournette was upset with the carries he saw on the weekend, with young back Rachaad White is closing the gap in terms of touches with the veteran, and he's understandably frustrated. 

Until the final drive of the game, the entire Buccaneers offence was frustrated, so it's interesting to see that Fournette is upset with his usage, and with a veteran team full of talent, they'll no doubt handle this internally, but if the frustration grows, it will certainly be a situation worth monitoring going forward.
