NFL Injury Report: Antonio Bryant & Steve Smith
A couple of star receivers got banged up today.
Tampa Bay WR Antonio Bryant will miss the rest of the preseason after injuring his knee. He tore the meniscus in his left knee. He will have his knee scoped ASAP in hopes that he’ll be ready to go when the Bucs open their season on September 13th against Dallas. Bryant had a career year last year with 83 receptions for 1248 yards and 7 TDs. This is a blow to Bryant’s fantasy value as he won’t get time to work on a rapport with newcomer Luke McCown, who is likely to land the starting QB job.
In other injury news, Carolina stud WR Steve Smith injured his shoulder in a collision with Cornerback Chris Gamble. X-Rays are his shoulder were negative and it’s unclear at this point how long Smith will be out of action.
