It is never a sight that anyone wants to see, but it looks like the Buccaneers could be without another veteran after more bad practice luck.
Breshad Perriman is far from a lock to make the roster for the Buccaneers. Tampa already has a very deep room of receivers competing for the last two or three spots on the depth chart, and while Perriman has the talent, frame, and speed to be a great depth receiver for the Bucs, his age relative to some of his counterparts made his odds a bit longer.
Now, it seems like those long odds could work against Perriman even more.
While it hopefully turns out to be nothing, Breshad Perriman left practice today after seeing a trainer on the field.
Hearing that Perriman was able to walk off the field on his own is great news after what we all saw with Ryan Jensen and the cart, but guys walk off these terrible injuries all the time.
The picture does not reveal much, nor is there any concrete information just yet, but the angle of the picture shows something happened to Perriman’s knee or lower leg, and that usually isn’t a good sign.
This will hopefully blow over as a minor tweak, putting Perriman back in competition for one of the last few roles, but any bad news on this front could spell the end of his chances to make the final roster.
As much as the Buccaneers would like to sit and wait with all of the veterans that have legitimate chances of making the team, the competition for any available spots is going to be ruthless, and any time off or concerns of injuries is going to play a role.
We are all hoping that this turns out to be something minor and Perriman is back to practicing soon.
