Grimm Probably Out For Season

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.
