Report: Garcia suffers calf injury, Gruden says QB is day-to-day
ESPN.com news services
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jeff Garcia injured his right calf in non-contact drills on Thursday, the St. Petersburg Times reported.
Bucs coach Jon Gruden said he doesn't think the injury is serious, calling the 38-year-old veteran day-to-day even though Garcia could not put weight on the leg.
"I don't believe it's serious," Gruden told the Times. "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.
"I think it was just a freak thing. He was dropping back and took off as he always does, changed directions and felt a little pull in there."
Garcia went to the locker room on a golf cart and had trouble walking 15 feet from the sidewalk to the front door.
