Grimm says he will have surgery Wednesday, will miss three months



Bucs safety Cody Grimm said he will have surgery Wednesday in Miami to repair a broken left fibula he suffered in Sunday's 17-10 loss at Baltimore.

Grimm says doctors told him he will miss three months but should make a full recovery. According to Grimm, a plate will be screwed into his leg to help stabilize bone.

“I’ve never missed a day of football in my life, I never broke a bone or tore anything,'' Grimm told 620WDAE. "I knew I broke something. Ronde (Barber) tried to help me up and I was like, 'No.'

"I don’t think anyone in my family has broken a bone, not even my dad who played 11 years.''

Grimm is the son of Arizona Cardinals assistant head coach and Washington Redskins Hall of Fame offensive lineman Russ Grimm.

Following his injury, Grimm was x-rayed immediately at the stadium and doctors detected a clean break in the fibula near his ankle. He was fitted for a hard cast. Many of Grimm's family members, including his mother, were at the game and visited with him in the locker room.
