Wide receiver Raymond's promising rookie season may be cut short.
It appears Buccaneers’ rookie wide receiver Raymond Webber’s season could possibly be over. Earlier this afternoon Webber posted this tweet.
“I’m alright, wish I could play this year but I’m still a part of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, its light at the end of the tunnel.”
On Tuesday PewterReport.com reported Webber suffered a hamstring injury but at the time the severity was not known.
Webber went on to say he has three torn tendons on his hamstring. He also tweeted.
“Doctor said he's amazed I was able to walk and still function my leg from how the x-ray looks.”
Webber was signed as a rookie free agent at the start of training camp and while the Buccaneers seemed content at the wide receiver position, coaches and fans had raved at his early camp performance.
The former Arkansas-Pine Bluff receiver was injured Monday during a special team’s workout.
The 6-foot-three, 220-pounder led the entire nation in receiving last year catching 101 balls for 1,429 yards.
There was no word or confirmation from the Buccaneers organization.
