Bucs RB LeGarrette Blount suffers leg injury



RB LeGarrette Blount’s unspecified left leg injury sustained during a hit from S Dashon Goldson left him sidelined for much of the second half.

Asked whether Blount could have returned to the game, coach Raheem Morris said, “I just listen to what my doctors tell me. I know he didn’t come back. He was icing down. Healthy men have to play. That was Kregg Lumpkin and Allen Bradford when we pulled (Earnest Graham) out of there.”

Graham is the next back off the bench, and he finished the third quarter before giving way to Lumpkin and Bradford.

Asked after the game about his injury, Blount didn’t comment.
