Grimm Takes It On The Knee

September 25th, 2011

As those watching on the Internet on television saw, Cody Grimm came up to make a tackle today and got tied up, in part with Geno Hayes, and was carted off the field. It looked like Grimm’s spikes might have stuck in the turf, his leg straightened and then he took a shot on the knee.

Corey Lynch stepped up into the free safety role and did a very solid job on Tony Gonzalez in man coverage.

As for Grimm, Joe has no official word on his injury, but Grimm was on crutches in the locker room and not putting weight on the affected leg. However, Grimm’s knee was not in a brace and he was telling teammates he’d be “alright.” The Bucs likely will update Grimm’s status tomorrow.

Of course, Joe knows Grimm’s injury will bring wild cries for Tanard Jackson’s return. Hopefully, the Bucs won’t need to go there.

    Cody is getting an MRI tomorrow and will know more then, as a big fan of his, I hope to God it’s just a strain or something, I waited for him to get back on the field only to lose him again!
