Quincy Black UpdateNovember 12th, 2012
Bucs coach Greg Schiano isn’t always forthcoming with information. That’s why Woody Cummings digs up information.
The Bucs beat writer for The Tampa Tribune obtained news concerning Bucs linebacker Quincy Black, who was carted off on a board, his helmet heavily taped to the board in what appeared to be some sort of head or neck injury yesterday.
“He was feeling good, but the doctors still aren’t sure what the exact injury or extent of it is,” said Black’s agent, Marc Lillibridge. “It could be a pinched nerve or something. He was going to get more tests today.”
Cummings learned that, yes, Black has full use of his “extremities” and was released from the hospital last night, returning to the hospital today to continue a battery of tests to find out exactly what is wrong.
Today, in his new conference, Schiano claimed Black’s injury is serious in that he is having complications and ruled Black out for the Carolina game. Schiano added that he does not believe Black’s injury is career-threatening, sort of suggesting Black’s injury may be a nerve issue. Schiano added Black is having “complications” with his left arm, but did not elaborate.
Per Cummings, Lillibridge was moved when he learned Schiano visited Black in the hospital last night.
