Young Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan gets hurt, but leaves happy

TP_309411_WALL_Bucs_9 Apparently, Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker Matt Bryant wasn't the only one hurt by his final field goal attempt today.

The ball ended up hitting 7-year-old Bucs fan Kevin Jackson, who was walking by the stands behind the end zone. Jackson, at his first Bucs practice, got hit in the nose, and was taken to a first aid tent.

Jackson, wearing a Cadillac Williams jersey, stuck around for a little bit, and Bucs coach Raheem Morris - upon being alerted with what happened - brought him an official ball.

Morris asked Jackson if he cried (he admitted he did), but joked with him a little bit, and ended up making the second grader smile before he left.
