LeGarrette Blount Injury: Bucs RB Returns To Practice

Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans should be relieved to hear that running back LeGarrette Blount returned to practice on Monday after suffering a groin injury in the second quarter of Friday's preseason game against the Tennessee Titans. Although the injury initially appeared to be serious, Blount participated in all full-contact drills with no issues, according to Stephen Holder of the Tampa Bay Times.

I feel good, I just came out to practice today to see how it would feel, and it didn't feel bad.

If this is indeed the case, Blount should be ready to go for the Bucs' next preseason game on Friday against the New England Patriots. Blount is currently in the middle of a competition for the top running back on the team along with fellow back Doug Martin.

LeGarrette Blount Injury: Bucs RB Groin Not Believed To Be Serious

Tampa Bay Buccaneers starting running back LeGarrette Blount was forced to leave the game in the second quarter of Friday night's NFL preseason game against the Tennessee Titans, a game the Bucs lost 30-7. Blount limped off the field and the injury was initially thought to be his knee, but it thankfully turns out the injury was a lot less severe according to Tampa Bay head coach Greg Schiano in a report appearing on ESPN:

"It's not a knee; it's more up in his groin area. He just got bent a funny way," Schiano said. "LeGarrette's a tough kid and I don't think it is something that will sideline him too long. But if it does, we'll deal with that."

Blount was injured just before the two-minute warning in the first half with the Buccaneers trailing the Titans 20-7.
