Tampa Bay Buccaneers first-round NFL Draft pick Vita Vea left today's training camp practice with an injury. Here's the latest on what's happening.
Vea, a 23-year-old draft pick out of Washington, left this morning's practice on a cart. He appeared to suffer some kind of leg injury.
Here's video of Vea being carted off the field, which is tough to watch:
Vea appears to be OK, though.
NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reports that the injury is likely just a calf strain.
"For Bucs first-round DT Vita Vea, who left practice limping today, the early word is it’s just a calf strain. I’d expect caution with his availability," he reports.
Vea was the No. 12 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. He was an All-American defensive lineman at Washington.
