Quincy Black Update

November 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.

    Schiano takes head an neck injuries real serious. He doesn’t take chances when it comes to someones career or well-being.

    Wish QB a speedy and full recovery. He was having his best season yet and thriving in this new defense. It was a thunderous hit. We could here all the way up in 309. Glad it wasn’t worse. The Chargers showed a lot of class too. Norv is good coach with a good team. The Bucs were just better yesterday at making plays in the clutch.

    Sounds exactly like a nerve getting smashed. I had the nerve nucleus smashed in high school footbal. Made a TD saving, diving tackle and we rolled out of bounds. I was going full speed and rolled onto the edge of the runway for the long jump or something from track. My elbow slammed into the corner (think hitting your funny bone – which is the nerve – as hard as you can onto the corner of a curb).
    My entire left side of my body went numb and I couldn’t move. FREAKY. Didn’t feel anything, thought I was paralyzed and I didn’t know why.
    There is another nerve nucleus in the neck area that could do the same thing.
    The effects are lingering for awhile. All my feeling came back over the course of 3 days but to this day (25 years later) I still don’t have any feeling in the side of my left pinky… wierdest thing.
    Doctor told me if it was the nerve in the neck (which is what they were checking to make sure of) it could have been worse because alot of feeling in larger parts of my arm might not have returned.

    Anyway, sorry to drag on, but this sounds very familiar. Here’s to hoping Black gets healthy
