Webber Could Be Lost for Season

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.

    It is a shame this kid was going to maybe a diamond in the rough, But maybe next year if he comes back.

    wow, hope he get better by next year, 6-3 220 llbs sounds pretty built for the WR position.

    It was mumbled that he was hinting at the fact the Bucs maybe were trying to "hide" him by placing him on IR, while retaining his rights at the same time. There could be something to that and if you ask me, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do to keep some players, while we're getting pretty stoudt at receiver, he may be in a much better position to creep up the depth chart next year while learning the playbook this year (on IR), either way I hope we can keep him.

    Seems every year that some undrafted free agent rookie starts to make an impression in training camp only to be lost for the season. Always feel bad for those guys, working so hard to make the team. Keep your head up and come back stronger next year.

    In observing countless practices for nearly 35 years I always tried to ignore the numbers so I wouldn't be biased and just see which players jump out where I think, "Who is that guy." The first practice I attended, it was # 86 Ray Webber.

    Mark - He might have led the nation in catches, but yards he did not. That honor goes to Fred Williams of St. Cloud State another receiver the Bucs are heavily interested. He had 95 receptions for 1,616 yards and 17 touchdowns. . The 6-foot 200-pound Williams, was a four year starter and amassed 264 receptions, 3,804 yards and 39-touchdowns in 44 games. He reportedly ran a 4.41 forty

    Its a shame a young man had this injury, Maybe next year if he comes back, I wish him well.

    If he can get healthy for next year, this actually could work in his favor. He would have had a tough time making the roster this year. It allows him to stay with the team, continue to learn the system, and get himself right for next season.

    Disappointing. Ed Gant can still give the Bucs' the 4 wide empty set, but Webber was a great story. The only other guy since Jerry Rice. How much fun is that to say?
