Alstott Is Out for Year

October 08, 2003|From Associated Press

Tampa Bay fullback Mike Alstott was put on injured reserve Tuesday because of a neck problem that may require surgery.

General Manager Rich McKay said the season-ending injury, which has bothered the six-time Pro Bowl selection for about three weeks, is not believed to be career-threatening.

Alstott started Monday night's game against Indianapolis. It's unclear when he aggravated the injury in the 38-35 overtime loss to the Colts.

Also, the Buccaneers said that receiver Keyshawn Johnson is questionable for Sunday because of a left thigh bruise.
