Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Antonio Bryant, Angelo Crowell cope with injuries



From today's St. Petersburg Times:

Wide receiver Antonio Bryant will miss three weeks with a torn meniscus in his left knee, Rick Stroud writes. Coach Raheem Morris said Bryant will not play in the preseason as a precaution but will be ready for the season opener Sept. 13 against Dallas.

Having spent the summer rehabilitating a serious left knee injury that sidelined him for all of 2008, Angelo Crowell returned to practice last week only to be quickly derailed again -- this time by a hamstring strain. Now his roster spot might be in jeopardy because he has been unable to make a dent in workouts and was listed as the third-string strong-side linebacker Monday. But, to Morris' surprise, Crowell is holding up, Stephen F. Holder writes.
