LeGarrette Blount Injury: Bucs RB Ruled Out

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Raheem Morris said RB LeGarette Blount would not play against the Chicago Bears in London on Sunday.

Morris decided to keep Blount out again after he missed team practice all week in London recovering from a possible MCL tear.

Blount was hit on his left knee during the Bucs' Week 5 loss to the San Francisco 49ers and he missed last week's win over the New Orleans Saints.

Ernest Graham will take his spot in the starting line-up. Otherwise known as Insurance Graham, the vet rushed for 109 yards last week against the Saints.

Typically the type of injury that Blount reportedly has, has a 4-6 week recovery period. There has yet to be an official word on exactly how long Blount will be out.
