TAMPA -

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers broke training camp after Wednesday's workout at One Buc Place, but the difference between camp workouts and those scheduled for the rest of the preseason is minimal.

 The players get will get to move out of the hotel they've been staying at and their schedule will change slightly, but workouts will still be run much the way they have been the past few weeks.

 "Next week will be kind of a modified training camp,'' said Bucs coach Greg Schiano, whose plans for the coming weeks are so similar to the previous ones that he actually forgot training camp was ending.

 "(The players) kind of filled me in that today was the last day,'' he said. "I wasn't even thinking that way, which is my fault, but I know as a player I'd be thinking that way.

 "But I kind of look at it like there is this next week and then there's the last preseason game … and there's a plan in place for what we're going to do. So it does gear back a little but, but we still have some work to do.''

 Schiano altered the schedule for Wednesday's workout slightly. The team began its workout a half-hour later than usual and finished up about 15 minutes earlier. The work schedule was mostly the same, though.

 The Bucs spent most of the day working 11-on-11 game situations such as red zone, third-down and four-minute offenses. They'll finish the day out, though, with their version of a rookie hazing.

 Rookies will be asked to perform a talent show for the veterans and coaches.

"We have a couple of skits prepared, so we'll see how it goes,'' running back Doug Martin said. "Hopefully that's all we'll have to do, but you never know. I can dance if I have to. It'll be fun.''
