LeGarrette Blount Injury: Bucs RB Undergoing MRI

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back LeGarrette Blount will undergo an MRI on his neck and back after taking a hit in during Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Blount will sit out practice Wednesday, according to Bucs general manager Mark Dominik. He was seen "exhibiting a shaking motion" after the hit on Sunday.

"We’re going to do our due diligence on our players to make sure player safety is No. 1, the most important thing," Dominik said. "We always go back and look at everything that has happened with the player and what we’re doing right now is making sure he sees all the correct people he needs to see. That includes that we’re doing an MRI on his neck and his back."

It's uncertain whether Blount will be cleared for Tampa Bay's game against the New York Giants. Dominik told reporters he hopes to provide another update in the next 24 hours. Blount had eight yards on three carries against Carolina.
