Bruce Arians Describes Leonard Fournette’s Setback

January 16th, 2022

No Playoff Lenny today.

No big worries, the Bucs have guys who can run.

Leonard Fournette’s bad hamstring just wasn’t up to speed when tested earlier this week. This morning, the greatest head coach in Buccaneers history explained to NFL Network what happened.

“It’s just a little tweak, you know. He wasn’t full speed when he really opened up and tried to push off a couple times it caught him. So we’re just going to be very cautious of him,” Bucco Bruce Arians said.

This is a bit troublesome as it relates to Playoff Lenny performing next Sunday in Round 2 of the playoffs.

Yeah, Joe is being assumptive. Ke’Shawn Vaughn and Le’Veon Bell, along with just-got-back Giovani Bernard, should be able to carry the load at running back today against the Eagles. Ronald Jones is out with a bad ankle.

    What a bad luck season of injuries for the Bucs this year.

    This may be the worst season ever, overall, for injuries.

    Just terrible timing when defending a title.

    I don’t know about anyone else, and I’m sure he’s actually injured… but Rojo gives me an AB vibe…minus the elite talent

    Always seems discontent, and I don’t know the last time he was in for more than 10 snaps. Usually 5-6 and he’s “Ill” or injured or head isn’t in it.

    Seriously.. 2 plays at ATL and out due to illness? It’s a damn shame… he runs like Eric Dickerson when/if he ever plays.

    Vaughn has chance to shine.

    No Tom Brady and Arians wouldn’t even be in the discussion for the best coach. Not saying he is bum tho.

  7. Tim Says:

    BradyBucs is right about all the injuries, and despite all the injuries we’re STILL the #2 seed, with a chance to repeat as champs. It’s good having Tommy Touchdown.

  8. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Hey, we all had none of the unfurl complaints from the teams we beat last year in the playoffs…SO now it’s our turn to show that injuries AIN’T an excuse!!
    Kick some Eagle @ss today BUCS and show them why our injury riddled team is still the defending Champs until we ain’t!!!!

    *injury not unfurl

  10. Eddie Marz Says:

    The Bucs are vulnerable. Too many key players out. It’s going to be a very hard fought win. GOBUCS!

    Go Bucs!
