LB Cash injures neck in collision



UPDATE, 11:17 p.m.: Coach Jon Gruden and executive vice president Bryan Glazer tell us there is plenty of optimism that Cash's injury isn't as serious as feared. Both say he had extensive movement in his extremities and Gruden confirms it was indeed a neck injury.

An actual diagnosis wasn't immediately available, as doctors will undoubtedly have to do further tests to get more information.

10:33 p.m.: Bucs linebacker Antoine Cash injured his neck during a collision with teammate Marcus Hamilton Saturday night in a preseason game against the Jaguars.

Cash struck Hamilton's right knee with the crown of his helmet during a play in the fourth quarter. Both players remained on the ground for several minutes.

Cash's head and neck were immobilized by team doctors and likely taken to St. Joseph's Hospital. His condition was unknown but appeared to have moment in his hands. Hamilton suffered a knee injury and was helped off the field.

No further information was made available.
