Only A Few Days Out For Vernon Hargreaves

July 28th, 2018

Injured spectator

Yes, Vernon Hargreaves is hurt.

And that’s why Hargreaves was a very animated cheerleader today under the sweltering heat at One Buc Palace, Day 3 of training camp.

Man, Hargreaves gets fired up for his defense. The guy just can’t stand still. He’s not a hands-on-hips kind of spectator.

Yesterday, Hargreaves caught a shin gash that required stitches, Dirk Koetter confirmed today. The head coach said it was similar to what happened to Brent Grimes last year during a camp practice but not as serious. That injury kept Grimes out the entire preseason. Hargreaves, per Koetter, will only miss a few days.

More work for Ryan Smith as the first-team outside cornerback. Rookie M.J. Stewart got his share of work at nickel in Hargreaves’ absence.

    So how is it unlike Grimes’ injury? Didn’t you say that to a fellow poster yesterday, Joe? Was it a different leg?

    “We going to have any starter from this past draft?”

    Looking at him I can’t help but think cheerleader might be his preferred career choice.

    Not a surprise, he was hurt alot at Florida; he’s in desperate need of a good season to avoid the bust label…

    Honestly speaking, I was really disappointed when we drafted him, I preferred Keanu Neal and the Falcons of all people took him a few picks later…My concern at the time with Hargreaves was the fact that, he was short, slow, and imo, soft which is never a good combination for a player at any position other than kicker in the NFL…

    Good it’s not like Grimes’s was…that was ultra nasty…think I remember he missed most of preseason. VHIII needs the work!

    VHIII has the right attitude. Just like when Mike Evans had a ‘bad’ second year and fans here wanted him traded or cut, VHIII has come to camp determined to step up his game.

    He’ll be a starter.

    And he will prove Joe #2 wrong about Bucs CBs.

    I never played sports that required the use of spikes. Is this a common injury?
