Tom Crabtree carted off with leg injury


The only goal of a fourth preseason game is to get through it intact.

Unfortunately, the Buccaneers may have fallen short of the goal, as Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune reports that tight end Tom Crabtree has been carted off with an ankle injury.

They’ve already announced he would not return.

Crabtree, brought in from Green Bay this offseason, was competing for the starting job with Luke Stocker, but was going to get plenty of action in two-tight end sets anyway.
