LeGarrette Blount Groin Injury Is Not Serious, Says Schiano

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano said that running back LeGarrette Blount has a left groin injury. The Buccaneers do not think that Blount's injury is serious, though Schiano offered no further details on Blount's status.

Blount was carted off the field in the first half of the Buccaneers' game against the Tennessee Titans. It looked like a more serious injury at the time. He was back on the sidelines with his teammates in the second half, not wearing any kind of brace or icing his leg.

The Buccaneers have a position battle between Blount and rookie Doug Martin to determine who will be the starting running back.

LeGarrette Blount Injury: Bucs Running Back Carted Off

Tampa Bay Buccaneers' star LeGarrette Blount went down with a knee injury in the Bucs' preseason game against the Tennessee Titans on Friday night:

Rick Stroud had this to say on Twitter:

Bucs RB LeGarrette Blount hurts his left knee when he's hit by S Al Afalava. Looked fairly serious. Did limp off the field.


The Titans lead the game 20-7 and Blount's injury would certainly be a blow to the team. He was having a bad night thus far, however, with only 11 yards on eight carries in the game. Backup Doug Martin has been slightly more impressive with five carries for 21 yards.

Blount rushed for nearly 800 yards last season for the Bucs and is expected to carry the load in the backfield. It's unknown if Blount will return just yet.
