Tampa Bay linebacker Quincy Black was carted off the field after
tackling San Diego running back Ryan Matthews during the third
quarter of Sunday’s game between the Buccaneers and Chargers.
Black stopped Matthews for a 1-yard loss, but remained on the
ground with just under four minutes remaining. There was no
immediate announcement on the nature of the injury, but trainers
examined the sixth-year pro for several minutes before immobilizing
his neck and back on a stretcher.
Matthews was not injured and remained in the game.
