2-4 weeks for Percy, but that knee is a dangerous thing. IMO, if Percy comes back the job is his no matter what. He is Joes guy and Joe promised him that role if he came to Tampa. Balfour has been better than Percy the last month and Maddon still goes to Percy. In the meantime, they will go with a CBC IMO. Maddon likes veterans and will give them a chance (Wheeler). The last time Percy was out Wheeler got 2 opps, Balfour got 3, and Miller and Howell each got one. Maddon will go with the best match ups.
