Quincy Black injury: Bucs LB dealing with arm complications

Anthony Gruppuso-US PRESSWIRE

Bucs coach Greg Schiano hopes injury doesn't threaten Black's career.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Quincy Black "will be okay" but is having complications in his left arm after being carted off the field Sunday, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano said it's a serious injury, but other than his left arm, Black has full function.

Black, 28, made a helmet-to-helmet tackle on San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Matthews in Sundays' 34-24 win for the Bucs. Black fell to the ground after the hit. His neck was stabilized and he was carried off on a stretcher.

Schiano said he hope Black's injury isn't career-threatening, but "it's too early to speculate," according to the Times.

Black is a former third-round draft pick in the 2007 NFL Draft. He's been with the Buccaneers for his entire six-year career, and has been a regular starter for the last four seasons.

Before his injury, Black compiled 25 tackles and two fumble recoveries in nine games. He has 203 tackles and 3 1/2 sacks in his career.
