Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette is likely to be ready for Tampa Bay’s next game after its bye despite suffering a hip pointer Sunday against the Seahawks in Munich, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The Buccaneers’ next game is at the Browns in Week 12.
Fournette rushed for 57 yards on 14 carries and a touchdown in the Buccaneers’ 21-16 victory before leaving the game in the fourth quarter with his injury.
“Had he not slipped you would have seen his 42-inch vertical,” coach Todd Bowles joked.
Brady recognized that the defense wasn’t fooled.
“I tried to yell ‘Lenny no,’ but it was too late,” Brady said.
Rookie Rachaad White led the Buccaneers in rushing with 105 yards on 22 carries.
The Buccaneers improved to 5-5 with the victory and hold a one-game lead in the NFC South standings entering their bye.
Fournette leads the Buccaneers with 462 yards rushing and three rushing touchdowns this season.
