Tampa Bay running back Derrick Ward left Saturday's game against Kansas City with what the team called a head injury and that means it’s possible he suffered a concussion. The team said Ward will not return to the game.
Ward was one of Tampa Bay’s big free-agent signings last year, but he has struggled since he joined the Bucs. He was unable to beat out Cadillac Williams for the starting job and wasn’t a big factor last year.
Ward had a rough outing, including two fumbles, in last week’s preseason game with Miami. He also was unimpressive through most of training camp and there has been speculation Kareem Huggins could be challenging him for the No. 2 running back spot.
