Grimes (lower leg) returned to practice Tuesday and participated exclusively in position drills, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
The veteran corner didn't do any work during team periods and still wore a sleeve on his injured leg. He remained on the field putting in some extra work following the conclusion of practice, but head coach Dirk Koetter has labeled him as doubtful for Saturday's third preseason contest versus the Browns.
Grimes (lower leg) has already had a portion of the stitches removed from his lacerated shin and is expected to be ready for the season opener, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
Grimes was seen working with head athletic trainer Bobby Slater after Sunday's practice, a session that he did not participate in. Despite the fact his laceration is already well on its way to healing, Grimes isn't expected to play next Saturday against the Browns in the Bucs' third preseason game. However, he currently doesn't appear to be in any danger of missing any regular-season action.
Grimes (lower leg) is not expected to take the field for the Buccaneers next preseason matchup against the Browns on Aug. 26, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports. Though, according to head coach Dirk Koetter, Grimes would be ready if it was a regular season game.
Grimes is making solid recovery from his injury -- a laceration on his leg which required 20 stitches. While it's unclear if he'll return to the field during the preseason, coach Koetter indication that Grimes would be healthy enough to play if the game counted towards the team's record. It's possible he'll simply use the team's remaining practices before the Week 1 opener as preparation for the regular season.
Grimes (lower leg) made the trip up to Jacksonville for this week's joint practices with the Jaguars, but will remain sidelined indefinitely, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
Grimes' laceration on his leg, which he sustained in last Wednesday's practice when he got tangled up with a receiver, ultimately required 20 stitches to close. The veteran corner is still in the midst of healing, so it's difficult to ascertain when he'll be able to return to the field. It's conceivable the Bucs could opt to hold Grimes out of the remaining three exhibitions and simply let practices serve as his main source of preparation for the regular season.
Grimes (lower leg) will miss Friday's preseason opener due to a laceration suffered in practice Wednesday, Roy Cummings of WFLA News reports.
As per Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, Grimes got tangled up with a receiver and collapsed on the ground holding his lower right leg. The end result was a sizable laceration in the shin area that required Grimes to be carted off the field. Ryan Smith, Javien Elliott or Jude Adjei-Berimah (knee) could see reps with the first-team defense in Grimes' absence Friday, although the latter is now questionable in his own right. Meanwhile, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the extent of the cut on Grimes' leg is such that he's now considered unlikely to play in the preseason.
