The bad news is that Quincy Black is done for the season. The Bucs put him on injured reserve yesterday. The good news is that the prognosis is good for a complete recovery, although his left arm is still iffy.
Black has use of his left arm but doctors believe there could be nerve damage and are waiting for the swelling to go down before ordering further tests, according to his agent, Marc Lillibridge.
“It’s not like he’s not using that left arm,” Lillibridge said. “They expect it to all come back and time should help it heal, but they got some tests they want to finish. They don’t know exactly what it is yet, because there’s trauma to the area.”
“Trauma to the area” is putting it mildly; that was a vicious hit. Ryan Mathews just up and walked away from it and Black’s season is over. One inch one way or the other is all it takes to make the difference. I’m really glad he’s going to be okay. It could have been worse. A lot worse. After Greg Schiano‘s experience with Eric LeGrand, he must have been a wreck. Good luck, Quincy.
