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 has a left groin injury and it is not believed to be serious, Schiano said.— Rick Stroud (@NFLSTROUD) August 18, 2012
Schiano said it was not the knee, which is encouraging.— Rick Stroud (@NFLSTROUD) August 18, 2012
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.
