Tampa Bay Vipers wide receiver Antonio Callaway was reportedly injured and carted off from practice Wednesday morning.
The Scrum Sports’ Eric Evans reported from Vipers practice this morning that the 23-year-old Callaway went down on the ground with his helmet off and that things “didn’t look good.” Callaway was then carted off the field, a bad sign given he couldn’t leave under his own power.
Tampa Bay Times Sports reporter Mari Faiello then reported on Vipers head coach Marc Trestman’s comments on Callaway’s injury after practice. Trestman claims there is no official injury report quite yet, but it was a lower leg injury.
Callaway, a former University Of Florida Gator, was a big addition for the Vipers earlier this month. The young receiver showed signs of great promise during his time in the NFL with the Cleveland Browns, but was later let go due to behavioral concerns after Callaway started showing up late to meetings and practices.
Prior to being released Callaway had also served a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy. We’ll keep you updated as more information on Callaway’s injury becomes available.
