Bucs hint that RB Blount may be out next week

St. Petersburg Times - [Full Article]

Bucs coach Raheem Morris said, "I don't want to rule (LeGarrette Blount) out, but I'm not looking at him. It is what it is. Next man up. I'd like to get more detailed information on him. I'll call him day-to-day for now."

Blount went down in the third quarter after making a 29 yard catch from Freeman and getting tackled at the knees by D Goldson. He did not return. If Blount can't go, Earnest Graham will get a bulk of the carries. Kregg Lumpkin and Allen Bradford will also get some carries.

Fantasy Impact: 

Coaches pretty much have to plan that way, but it doesn't sound as if Blount is going to play against the Saints. Fantasy owners should do the same and plan not to have Blount in your lineup this week. We'll keep updating you on the situation.
