Buccaneers RB LeGarrette Blount Cleared By Specialist To Return To Practice
When the Tampa Bay Buccaneers ran onto the practice fields on Wednesday to begin preparing for Sunday's game against the Super Bowl champion New York Giants, running back LeGarrette Blount wasn't with them.
Blount will be back on the field with teammates on Thursday.
A specialist in the Charlotte, N.C., area cleared Blount for a return to duty late Wednesday after determining Blount suffered a stinger when he went down after a second-quarter play Sunday.
"He's fine,'' Bucs general manager Mark Dominik said.
"He felt a stinger and it just made us nervous, the way he felt. That's part of the reason why you saw him (shaking his arms as he came off the field), because he lost some strength.''
Mystery had surrounded the former 1,000-yard rusher after coach Greg Schiano said on Monday he wasn't sure what was "ailing'' Blount, who did not return to Sunday's 16-10 victory against Carolina despite being cleared to by team doctors after what was thought to be a leg injury.
