Mike Alstott Sprains Knee

Tampa Bay fullback Mike Alstott went down with a sprained knee Sunday less than halfway through the game that slid the Buccaneers further down in the ranks.

Alstott took a handoff—his third of the game—and was tackled by a number of Bears players. When the dust cleared, the fullback was writhing in pain. Team trainers later called the injury a sprained knee.

Alstott had only taken two handoffs in the game for a total of three yards. He caught another pass for five yards. Prior to Sunday's appearance, he had carried the ball for 453 touchdowns and five touchdowns.

Team officials suspected an medial collateral ligament tear. If Alstott has, in fact, torn his MCL, he will likely miss some playing time, but will probably not need surgery, as he would with an ACL injury. Alstott underwent an MRI Monday to determine the extent of the injury. The results were not immediately available, according to Buccaneers.com.
