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.
