Down Goes LeGarrette Blount

August 17th, 2012

Even if Blount escapes a serious injury, Joe’s confident Bucs fans won’t see him for the rest of the preseason.

Quite a scary moment when LeGarrette Blount was drilled in the left knee late in the first half tonight. Blount was on the ground for a solid minute and gingerly walked off the field.

Blount was seen limping on the sidelines in the second half in full uniform, and the Bucs will update his condition in the coming days.

But regardless of how the Bucs list Blount’s injury, Joe’s confident Blount is done for the preseason. There’s no reason to play him next week against New England if he’s not 100 percent. And there likely won’t be any first-teamers playing in Washington five days later.

Doug Martin has quite an opportunity to shine next week and possibly earn bell-cow status.

    Good runs Martin had and credit him. 5 carries 21 yds. To bad he had to do most of it on his own. The line could not even open the hole to pick up what 1 yard on 3rd down.

    or get hurt himself. madu, smith and the scrub that is definitely getting cut have to take most of the reps next week.
