Schiano update on Blount situation raises more questions



LeGarrette Blount might be hurt. Or he might not be.

It’s not so clear after Bucs coach Greg Schiano’s mystifying response to why Blount saw no action after briefly going down midway through the second quarter of Sunday's win against the Panthers. He finished with three carries and one reception and never returned, though, according to Schiano, he could have.

“LeGarrette could have gone back in the game,” Schiano said. “So let me make that clear. I don’t know if we’re all certain on what’s ailing LeGarrette. He came out of the game and we thought it was his leg. We’re not sure. So we’re just keeping a close eye on him to make sure there’s nothing more serious. I think he’s okay.”

Blount wasn’t available to reporters after the game and left the locker room quickly. There was no injury update given by the team during the game as is usually the case when a player suffers an injury.

“I’ll let you know Wednesday,” Schiano said. “(Tuesday) we’re off but he’ll be around, and we’ll get a good feeling about whether there’s anything to it.”
