Bucs reported no injury to LeGarrette Blount



This question continues to be posed by email and Twitter, so we may as well as address it.

Regarding the status of running back LeGarrette Blount, who briefly went down in the second quarter on Sunday, the Bucs reported no injury, which suggests his lack of involvement was a coaching decision only. With the addition of Giants free agent D.J. Ware, who took many of the third-down snaps after just one week on the roster, there are even fewer reps up for grabs after Doug Martin gets done doing his thing.

We would have asked Blount about this to make certain, but he was literally the first player out of the locker room on Sunday, showered and dressed before reporters had even been allowed access.

We'll confirm this again with Greg Schiano later today, but based on everything the team told us, Blount was not hurt beyong being shaken up on the play.
