With a rash of injuries across the league early in training camp, it appears that the bug has caught up with the QB spot in Tampa Bay. It’s being reported that Bucs Pro Bowl QB Jeff Garcia was injured this morning in practice, and had to be carted off the field. The St.Petersburg Times is reporting that Garcia was hurt in a non-contact drill when he was rolling out and throwing. It’s being reported as a right calf injury.
Sources say that Garcia felt discomfort in his right leg, and then limped towards the sideline before being taken to the locker room. While it’s not known if Garcia is going to try and go in the afternoon practice, Rick Stroud of the St.Pete Times reported on NFL Radio this morning that either Brian Griese or Luke McCown would likely run the number one team in the PM practice.
“I don’t believe it’s serious,” Jon Gruden said following the practice . “We’re going to get the information. He might not have much at all. Right now, until we evaluate it further, we really can’t say much else.”
