Hurt shoulder forces Bucs' Gabbert from game


TAMPA, Fla. — Tampa Bay Buccaneers backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert left Friday night’s third preseason game against the Cleveland Browns with a shoulder injury and did not return.

In the third quarter, Gabbert was scrambling for 8 yards on third-and-5 when Browns linebacker Adarius Taylor grabbed Gabbert’s ankle trying to make a tackle. Gabbert landed awkwardly on his arm. He immediately motioned for the training staff and left the field holding his left wrist.

Gabbert completed 4-of-5 passes for 33 yards.

Third-string quarterback Ryan Griffin, the only remaining healthy quarterback on Tampa Bay’s roster, stepped in.

Rookie signal-caller Nick Fitzgerald is still recovering from a hamstring injury.

It was a rough night for Bucs quarterbacks, with the offensive line surrendering six sacks.

The Bucs won 13-12.
