Bucs awaiting word on Darrelle Revis
By Pat Yasinskas
TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers still don’t know how serious Darrelle Revis' groin injury is.
Coach Greg Schiano said Monday that Revis was having an MRI and the team was waiting to hear the results. Revis suffered the injury near the end of the first half of Sunday’s 24-21 victory against the Detroit Lions and missed the entire second half.
Rookie Johnthan Banks stepped into Revis’ role covering Calvin Johnson and kept the Detroit receiver in check.
In other injury news, Schiano said that tight end Tom Crabtree suffered a torn biceps and will be placed on injured reserve. That means the Bucs will have to add a tight end because Tim Wright currently is the only healthy tight end on the roster.
Schiano also said he’s hopeful that middle linebacker Mason Foster, who missed Sunday’s game with a concussion, will be cleared to return to practice this week.
