Buccaneers RB Blount expected to return vs. Saints next week

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back LeGarrette Blount returned to practice Wednesday, and coach Raheem Morris expects him to play next week against the New Orleans Saints after the Buccaneers' bye week, according to the Tampa Tribune.

Blount has sat out the Buccaneers' last two games with a knee injury. Backup running back Earnest Graham is out for the season after tearing his Achilles in the Buccaneers' 28-18 loss to the Chicago Bears.

Kregg Lumpkin is the only other running back on the Buccaneers' active roster.

The Buccaneers ran just 11 times for 30 yards last week against the Bears.
