Bucs FB Askew was hurt in 'fender bender'



Bucs fullback B.J. Askew, who has not practiced this week for what is listed as a back/neck injury, was injured in a 'fender bender,' Tuesday, coach Raheem Morris said.

"The other morning he had a fender bender, got into an accident,'' Morris said. "We're going to monitor his status day by day to see what's going on with B.J.

 Morris said Earnest Graham would be the lead blocking fullback if Askew is unable to play against the Panthers.

"You know Earnest, man, he's Mr. Versatile,'' Morris said. "He can catch the ball our of the backfield, he can be a third-down back, he can be a fullback. The versatility of Earnest Grahjam and what he does on special teams is huge. He's just a special player we love being around.''
