Severity Of Arrelious Benn Injury Unknown

December 26th, 2010

Joe’s already seeing quite a few questions about this subject so Joe will relay what he knows, which isn’t a whole lot.

Arrelious Benn suffered an injury to his left knee in the first half of the Bucs win over Seattle when he was tackled after his left foot planted awkwardly along the right sideline.

It was nasty enough that both teams came on the field and many Seahawks defenders huddled near Benn offering support.

Benn was able to walk off the field — gingerly — but once he got to the bench he was carted to the Bucs locker room.

in the second half Benn was on the Bucs sidelines in street clothes on crutches.

The severity of Benn’s injury won’t be fully known until Bucs coach Raheem Morris’ press conference Monday. By all appearances, the look of the injury itself, the reaction of players and Benn on crutches all points to a very depressing conclusion.

    God I hope he’s OK. It would absolutely suck to not have him available for next week.

    With all of these injuries the Bucs have dealt with, it is easy to say that they have been unfortunate. Can any of this blame be placed on the strength and conditioning personnel? If you ask me…they should all get canned!

    That crossed Joe’s mind before the game.

    I can’t see how it can go to the strength coach for blame.

    Doesn’t matter what kind of shape you are in if you get your knee twisted or foot broke or arm broke or head hit or leg broke…. not much you can do about these, Sh*t happens, sometimes more than other times.

    About the only injury I can think of that might be looked at as conditioning is McCoy’s torn bicep. Not sure because I am not a doctor, but it seems that may apply.

    Man, we are so beat up! I think that makes 8 or 9 starters out. I don’t think that there’s any way that Benn will be back next week. I just hope he will be okay for NEXT year. Was anyone else a little anxious when Blount was still in at the very end of the game?? He was getting up slower and slower. I was like, take him out!!!
