LeGarrette Blount Returns To Bucs Practice

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back LeGarrette Blount has been cleared to return to practice by a Charlotte, N.C., specialist. Blount suffered a stinger in the team's season opener against the Carolina Panthers, and as a precaution, the team sent him to the specialist to get an MRI on his neck and back.

Blount did not return to the Panthers game after suffering the injury in the second quarter, though team doctors cleared him to play at the time. The team wanted to be sure there wasn't any damage to his back or neck, and now that the MRI has come back clean, he can safely return to the field.
