Vita Vea MRI Scheduled for Friday
Buccaneers DT Vita Vea went down on Tuesday at practice during blocking drills. Pewter Report provided a video which showed Vea walking around trying to walk off whatever kind of injury that he suffered.
Uh-oh… #Bucs DT Vita Vea went down and grabbed his leg after colliding with the center.

After Vea walked around to shake off the injury, he walked off of the practice field under his own power with no limp. ESPN NFL Nation Buccaneers reporter Jenna Laine reported late Tuesday night that Vita Vea will be undergoing an MRI on his knee Friday. Hopefully the reason for the MRI on Friday is due to allowing swelling to go down so that team doctors can get a clear look at what type of injury Vea suffered and not anything else. We will keep you updated with any information that we receive regarding Vea.
