Eric Wright returned an interception for a touchdown against the Giants, but he was also injured during the game.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Eric Wright was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Giants because of a back injury. Wright had a big impact on the game prior to his exit, as he returned an Eli Manning pass 60 yards for a touchdown in the first half. The Bucs could have used his help during the Giants' second-half rally, which was spearheaded by the passing game.
Elsewhere on the Bucs injury front, wide receiver Preston Parker suffered an ankle injury on Sunday. It is unknown at this time whether he or Wright will be available for Tampa Bay's Week 3 game.
