Grimm Probably Out For Season

Cody Grimm 1

Raheem Morris admitted that Cody Grimm‘s “MCL is messed up“, but Stephen Holder says he’s being told that Grimm is headed for injured reserve. Morris is saying it’s time for the next Wolf to step up. Because you can never drive a movie reference into the ground. Think, McFly, think!

“It will be a battle this week,” Morris said. “We’ve got Corey Lynch, and we feel great about how he finished the game. But we also have Larry Asante who’s been standing (on the sideline) with a baseball cap for a little while because we like Devin Holland on special teams.

“So, we’ll let Larry and Corey battle this week, and we’ll (determine) who plays or who gets the most amount of playing time. You know me, I can play any one of them or both of them any kind of way.”

Coincidently, Tanard Jackson is eligible for reinstatement and is better than all three of those dudes combined. I imagine as soon as that cart came out to take Grimm away, the Bucs were on the phone with the Ginger Hammer reminding him not to go nuts with that “indefinite” suspension thing.

Lynch looked good in place of Grimm (after that first bomb to Julio Jones) and that fourth down pass break up was awesome. He’s actually better in coverage than Grimm, and I’m guessing Lynch wins this contest without much of a fight. But as soon as Jackson gets reinstated, all that goes out the window.

The clicky’s fantastic, but you leave us hanging for a day and come back with a Cody Grimm injury update? Come on, Scott. We all want to see the big win recap! Hell, you were down there with press credentials. There better be something big (similar to the one buc place visit) in the pipeline.

Yes, I’m this desperate to read a fan blog. Oh well.

I know, I’m being lame. It’s been crazy and I’m having trouble getting time to write. I tried to make it up to you with the clicky. I’ll run down the whole visit in the next day or so. It kicked ass and you all need to hear about it.

Rewatching the game now. It is available on demand for free at I think there is one thing that I must missed in the rule changes. How come they are calling neutral zone infractions when it seems in years past that the refs swallowed the whistle and allowed the defensive line players a chance to get back onside?


Chum (September 27, 2011 at 04:11pm:

My original comment was about Cody Grimm being out. That really sucks because he was totally solid in my opinion, especially when safety was such an issue in recent years. Any news or new speculation on Tanard yet?

HEY!! According to Yasinskas we can watch the monday night gameon our tv’s instead of a crappy internet stream!

The Grimm injury is a bummer. Those tatas pretty much made up for it though.

@Scott, when you do write up the game, I would like your view on Gerald McCoy’s performance. He has a big fat zero in the stats for the game, but as we all know stats are for losers.

Chum – the rule states that if a defensive player enters the neutral zone and causes an offensive player to false start, the penalty is against the defender. If no one moves on offense, the defender can still get back before the snap with no penalty.

Mark – I’d like to hear Scott’s opinion of McCoy from a live viewpoint. From watching on Sunday Ticket in HD (I live outside the area), McCoy looked pretty disruptive though, even without official stats. I almost thought McCoy got to Ryan first on Clayborn’s sack, but it was bang-bang and McCoy was at his feet, Clayborn loosened Ryan’s fillings a bit.
