Faine Says Blount Looked Healthy

October 11th, 2011

As Bucs fans collectively hold their breath wondering whether LeGarrette Blount can wear a helmet Sunday, Jeff Faine offered encouraging words this evening.

“I’m feeling like we should see him out there Sunday … based on how he was acting [after the game.] Faine told J.P. Peterson on WQYK-AM 1010.

Faine went on to remind listeners that he’s not a medical professional and to explain that Blount was walking around like all was well as the team traveled home San Francisco. An official update on Blount will come from the Bucs tomorrow.

Frankly, Joe isn’t the least bit curious what the Bucs would look like without Blount. Joe saw enough of that nightmare when Cadillac Williams grinded out 2 1/2 yards a carry last year.

(Joe hates to tease, but Joe also will serve up interesting comments from Faine tomorrow.)

    T Jack is back. McCoy will be fine. Blount may play Sunday.
    Three chunks of much needed good news after two horrible days of abysmal posts.

    I don’t trust Faine to call defensive schemes or give medical reports!

    i just hope Blount stays healthy and gets more touches, i love Freeman but our recievers are NOT any kind of threat if the run isnt goin. as far as T Jax goes i hope hes game ready by the bye week, he would be a much better upgrade than “Not John” Lynch.

    @Mauha Deeb I have wiped Sunday from my memory completely. And like you I expect to see GMC and Blount on the field Sunday. Hopefully what I read about TJax being in shape and having been practicing with ‘Cuse team this season is true, we need him to sure up our backend.

    Question is, who gets the start in the backfield if blount is unable to go, Graham or Lumpkin? As much as I respect “Good guy” Earnest Graham I shudder at the thought of him or Lumpkin getting the bulk of our carries.

    Smokescreen, He doesn’t want the saints preparing for EG or Lumpkin

    Hey Joe
    I’d take Caddy’s 4.0 yards a carry, he’s got this year!
    BTW I thought he had 3.5 yard average last year?
