Bucs rookie WR Stroughter leaves with foot sprain

SEATTLE -- Tampa Bay rookie wide receiver Sammie Stroughter left Sunday's game against Seattle with a foot sprain, and safety Tanard Jackson joined him on the sideline later with a knee injury.

Stroughter came up with two big plays in the third quarter as Tampa Bay took control against the Seahawks. He had a 33-yard punt return, then later had a 16-yard reception on third-and-10 that helped the Bucs take a two-score lead.

Stroughter had four catches for 46 yards.

Jackson had an interception for the Bucs, but later said the move to come out was precautionary.

"A minor knee problem. A little more scary than anything," Jackson said.
