Brent Grimes Is Injured

July 31st, 2018

Well, perhaps there’s an clear explanation now as to why Brent Grimes was giving up on multiple plays a little early in Sunday’s practice.

After a Buccaneers day off yesterday, Grimes was in shorts on the fields of One Buc Palace today, taking mental reps as they call it.

Joe asked Dirk Koetter after practice whether it was just a veterans day off or something more.

“Brent got a little banged up as well. So if a guy is out here in shorts, that probably means there’s some reason he has to miss, but it’s nothing serious,” Koetter said. “Something that’ll just keep him out a day or so.”

    Grimes doesn’t really *need* training camp per se. He’s experienced and knows what it takes to be ready.

    Bubble wrap the man! Take NO chances!

    You can expect things like this to happen….as long as there is nothing serious….we are good…..the most important thing is that players not push themselves unnecessarily.

    Thanks for the rise in my heart rate you knucklehead joe! “Brent Grimes is injured” click bait got em again. Sounds minor though. —–C’mon man, yelling clickbait on an injury headline when the guy is injured? That’s cold.–Joe

    This is good for the young guys and rookies to get way more reps!!!!! The worry is that BG24 was injured this time last year and was sub par for Usual Grimes all year long!!!!!!

  7. Lord Cornelius Says:

    Rest him till week 1 if needed. He knows the system and his role. Like others said this is good for the rookies. Through Davis into the fire a bit.

    It sounds like MJ Stewart has been playing solid inside and outside. I wouldn’t be shocked if he starts outside with VHIII inside or vice versa at this point.

    He’s old.

    Hey joe: please referTo your previous article about veterans coming to the Buccaneers to pick up a paycheck. That’s all this guys doing

    Godeep66 – Seriously? I mean… seriously?

  11. Stanglassman Says:

    Godeep has got to be kidding 76’ nobody’s that stupid. Right?

    It’s hard to tell with all the hyperbolic dummies feeling so unshackled.

    I agree….I hope VHG grabs the bull the horns regarding that outside CB position…..

    My first thought was awesome, more reps for the young guys. It’s not just that they need more reps, it’s that more reps gives them the opportunity to show something and take that #2 spot. Whether they do or not is up to them.

  14. unbelievable Says:

    Hey at least Godeep66 isn’t hiding the fact that he’s completely clueless.

    I wonder what username he used to post under before trolling with this new one?

  15. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Again this is typical of the licht regime, i do think carlton davis will be a player some day, but licht goes w aging vet grimes and injured older dotson instead of addressing with some capable FA guys, bucs life continues

  16. Mike Johnson Says:

    grimes is one of the few players we have Who will step right into gameday when the time comes. He will be ready despite any days missed.

  17. Bucsfanman Says:

    TROLL alert!!!

  18. Debilah Says:

    To @Walter Seidel, he is gonna get old continuing to live, young people have the same problem. He is just fine, this rest is cautionary. As someone that knows, he is ready 😊. He is a 13 yr. vet, he will be on the field when needed. This is for @Godeep66, you should never assume about a vet just picking up a paycheck, obviously you don’t know the pay procedure, you should just ask that person you are talking about 😡

  19. Pryda... sec147 Says:

    Grimes should be having veteran days. Not worried he’ll be ready for the Aints

  20. Not there yet Says:

    People talk about father time catching up to Tom Brady every year, it’s a fair conversation to have about Grimes. We watched ronde his entire career and saw him slow down. Just don’t think he shouldn’t have gotten 10 mil and I would have been fine with saying veteran day but injury for someone who hasn’t really been going hard is just not a good sign
