Bucs running back LeGarrette Blount left the game in the second quarter with what turned out to be a groin injury, he said in the locker room afterward. Blount said “I just took a hit on the side. It just tweaked my groin a little bit. It’s not a serious injury. I’ll be back soon. I’ll be good.” However, Blount, when asked whether he could play in the team’s next game, said he couldn’t say. Blount was walking with a pronounced limp after the game.
If this turns into a lingering issue for Blount, rookie RB Doug Martin's workload and draft day value will benefit.
