With Tampa having a bye week 8, it really looks like the soonest Blount will be back is week 9.
The St. Petersburg Times reports LeGarrette Blount will miss 1-2 weeks with his left knee sprain.
The news here is that Blount will be doubtful this week against the Saints and questionable for next week against the Bears. The Bucs have a bye in Week 8, so it makes plenty of sense to hold Blount out to ensure that he's 100 percent in the second half of the season. Earnest "E-surance" Graham is shaping up as a quality RB2 for Week 6 and a RB2/flex option again in Week 7.
