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.
