FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Tampa Bay offensive guard Carl Nicks is looking forward to playing his first game since missing the last nine in 2012 with a toe injury.

That could happen Friday night when the Buccaneers play the New England Patriots in an exhibition game.

Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano says he won't be overly cautious in deciding whether to use the former All-Pro against the Patriots. He says he wants to see how Nicks feels before making a decision.

Nicks believes he'll play but says it's hard to gauge how far he's come back from the injury after playing only one or two series.

The Buccaneers and Patriots wrapped up three days of joint practices with a walkthrough on Thursday.
