LeGarrette Blount says groin injury 'not a serious injury'



Bucs running back LeGarrette Blount left the game in the second quarter with what turned out to be a groin injury, he said in the locker room afterward.

Blount said “I just took a hit on the side. It just tweaked my groin a little bit. It’s not a serious injury. I’ll be back soon. I’ll be good.”

However, Blount, when asked whether he could play in the team’s next game, said he couldn’t say. Blount was walking with a pronounced limp after the game.

“I’ve had nicks and bruises and that’s kind of what it is,” Blount said. “I mean, it hurt. It’s just something we’re going to have to look into (Saturday).”
