Eric Wright injury: Bucs CB is 'week-to-week'

Jeff Zelevansky

Bucs cornerback Eric Wright is week-to-week with a hamstring issue. The injury has been bothering him for over a month, but he's been playing through it so far.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Eric Wright has been dealing with a hamstring injury for the past month. He's been able to start over the past several weeks, but has missed significant portions of the Bucs' past two games. Head coach Greg Schiano said on Tuesday that Wright's status is week-to-week, and he may have to miss some time to get his leg feeling better.

Wright signed a five year, $37.5 million contract with Tampa Bay this past offseason, and was expected to be a cornerstone of the secondary. Now that Aqib Talib is gone, his role becomes even bigger, and a potential absence becomes significantly more damaging.

Wright is in his sixth NFL season, and first with the Bucs. He previously spent time with the Cleveland Browns and Detroit Lions. This season, he has 39 tackles and one interception, and he has 392 tackles and 14 interceptions over his entire career.
