Season ends early again for S Cody Grimm



Bucs safety Cody Grimm is quickly establishing himself as a good player with bad luck.

For the second straight season, Grimm's season will be cut short following an unfortunate play involving a teammate.

The Bucs placed Grimm on injured reserve Tuesday with a right knee injury he sustained in the third quarter of Sunday's 16-13 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Grimm was injured making a tackle of Falcons running back Michael Turner. It appeared that Grimm's right knee may have struck the helmet of linebacker Geno Hayes, who suffered a concussion on the play.

Grimm missed the final six games of 2010 with a broken left fibula, an injury that occurred while blocking following an Aqib Talib interception against the Baltimore Ravens.

Bucs coach Raheem Morris said Monday that Grimm had injured his MCL and the team was awaiting results from an MRI to determine other possible damage. But Morris held out hope Grimm might be able to return. Apparently, the results of those tests weren't positive, although no details have been released by the team.
