The injury is not expected to be serious, but
It was the second time in less than a week that Tomlinson was forced to leave practice. Last Thursday, Tomlinson exited the morning session after becoming dehydrated. However, after being treated with fluids through an IV, he was able to return in the afternoon.
The 24-year-old Tomlinson was the NFL's second-leading rusher last season, gaining 1,683 yards on 372 carries. He also rushed for 14 touchdowns and caught 79 passes for 489 yards and one TD.
Two seasons ago, Tomlinson set three team rookie rushing records and broke Lance
36-year-old franchise record for combined yards from scrimmage with 1,603 total. He finished the season with 1,236 rushing yards and 367 receiving yards and was voted to the Pro Bowl.
Tomlinson was the fifth overall pick in the 2001 draft after a stellar career at TCU.
