NFL Injury Report:
The goal for teams and players alike during the fourth
preseason game is to exit the field healthy. Unfortunately for Tampa Bay
Buccaneers tight end Tom Crabtree, his exit came via a cart. Crabtree left the
game after suffering a lower-leg injury, according to Roy Cummings of the Tampa
Bay Tribune, an ailment that was ultimately diagnosed as a sprained left ankle.
The Bucs starting TE battle may have just been decided as Tom Crabtree goes with lower leg injury. Being carted off field now

Crabtree suffered the injury while attempting to clear a
hole for running back Mike James. After hitting the ground, Crabtree reached
for his ankle in pain before he left the field on a cart.
Following his early exit, Crabtree received X-rays on his
ankle, which came back negative. Further evaluation will be required to
determine the extent of the injury, as Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times
points out that the results only show that his ankle isn’t broken.
X-rays were negative on #Bucs TE Tom Crabtree's left ankle, which only means it's not broken.

Crabtree entered training camp competing for the Bucs’
starting tight end gig with Luke Stocker. Even if he wouldn’t have been named
the starter, he was slated to see significant time in two tight end sets. He
was replaced by Tampa Bay’s third stringer Nate Byham.

TAMPA, Fla. -- Goodbye, preseason. These Tampa Bay Buccaneers will not miss you.
By definition, the preseason is a fuzzy picture of individual plans, off-the-radar players fighting for jobs and stars hoping to avoid injury. It's wise to use caution when analyzing results that will be forgotten come Week 1.
However, the Bucs closed their exhibition schedule 1-3, following a...

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed wide receiver Jordan Norwood. Norwood, who plays primarily in the slot, was released by the Cleveland Browns under a week ago. The Browns acquired the services of Davone Bess and do not need Norwood anymore. But in Tampa, they do not have a true slot receiver on staff and Norwood has a chance to carve out a role. Jordan shouldn’t be on your...

There's a fight coming between Lawrence Tynes and the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers, and itâs going to make his wife

It's hard enough to tackle anyone in the National Football League. The average American could only dream of bringing down a ball carrier.
But what about the thought of bringing two guys to the ground?
Well, Washington Redskins linebacker Rob Jackson did exactly that Thursday night when he took down Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon and offensive lineman Mike...
