Bucs Garcia injured?


Recommended Posts

SPARTANBURG, S.C. --

Garcia

The Bucs are downplaying the leg injury suffered by quarterback Jeff Garcia in practice this morning. But those who saw it happen, including defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin, said the injury didn't look minor.

Either way, the injury will only fuel speculation about Tampa Bay's possible interest in Brett Favre. Even if the Bucs don't get Favre and Garcia's injury is serious, there are plenty of options at quarterback.

Brian Griese is a veteran backup and Luke McCown has been having a strong camp. Rookie Josh Johnson also is on the roster. Griese would be functional as a temporary starter and the Bucs view McCown as a young player who could become a starter.

In perhaps the biggest irony of all, Chris Simms could end up staying on Tampa Bay's roster. That's still unlikely because Simms is being shopped around, but the Bucs could be only another quarterback injury away from keeping him.
