Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Adam Humphries left the second quarter of Saturday's game against the Cleveland Browns with a injury. Humphries had two catches for 24 yards during the first two drives of the game.

Humphries told reporters after the game that he had a hip pointer injury. Look for the coaching staff to be cautious with him in their upcoming final preseason tuneup. The former Clemson standout is vital for the Bucs as he is the current starter at slot receiver and punt returner.

He had an impressive 55 catches for 622 yards and two touchdowns as the team's No. 2 receiver in 2016. He had 27 catches for 260 yards (9.6 ypc) and a touchdown in his rookie season (13 games) in 2015. He will be a free agent in the spring of 2018.

The undrafted rookie and Clemson fan favorite earned a free agent contract after dazzling the Bucs' coaching staff in a two-day tryout back in May 2015. He was also impressive during the preseason as he led the team with nine catches for 139 yards and a touchdown.

The former Dorman high school product had 127 receptions for 1,097 yards and three touchdowns while at Clemson.
