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 — Roy Cummings (@RCummingsTBO) August 30, 2013 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. — Rick Stroud (@NFLSTROUD) August 30, 2013 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.
