Bucs S Cody Grimm was arrested for public intoxication in Leesburg, Va. early Sunday morning.

According to the Washington Post, it's the second time in three months that Grimm has been popped for public drunkenness. Both charges are misdemeanors, but the injury-prone special teamer was already on the bubble going into the final year of his rookie contract. He's not doing himself any favors.

Bucs S Cody Grimm agreed to a $500,000 salary slash to keep his roster spot in Tampa Bay.

The Bucs have loads of cap space, but GM Mark Dominik is smartly still keeping tabs on every small detail, refusing to overpay even for bottom-of-the-roster players. Grimm was owed $1.2 million and slashed his salary to $500,000. A 12-game starter his first two seasons in the league, Grimm is now entrenched as a backup and special teamer. He'll compete to keep his roster spot in camp.

Bucs S Cody Grimm's 2013 base salary increased from $575,000 to $1.2 million after he hit escalators in his rookie deal.

Grimm entered the league as a seventh-round pick out of Virginia Tech, but he's finished each of his three seasons on injured reserve with a broken leg and two knee injuries. Grimm is primarily a special teams player.

Cody Grimm is practicing as first-round pick Mark Barron's primary backup at strong safety at Bucs OTAs.

The Bucs no longer use safeties interchangeably, so Grimm is now strictly a strong safety. Ahmad Black is FS Ronde Barber's backup. Grimm was a solid starter his first two seasons, but durability has been a big concern. He's missed 18-of-32 possible games so far in his career. He'll be a special teamer in 2012.

Bucs FS Cody Grimm (knee) is participating in this week's minicamp.

Grimm's season ended in late September after tearing the meniscus and MCL in his right knee. Now healthy six months later, Grimm starts the offseason program atop the depth chart with the rest of the team's safeties in flux. DT Gerald McCoy (biceps) is also participating this week.

Bucs placed FS Cody Grimm on injured reserve with a torn meniscus and torn MCL in his right knee, ending his season.

Grimm tore the ligaments on a play in which his knee knocked Geno Hayes unconscious while hitting the linebacker's helmet. Larry Asante and Corey Lynch are candidates to fill in this week, though Tanard Jackson may be returning from suspension shortly. Grimm has exceeded expectations as a 2010 seventh-rounder, but he's now ended up on injured reserve in both seasons with the Bucs.

Updating a previous item, Bucs FS Cody Grimm (knee) may not be lost for the season after all.

The St. Petersburg Times reported early Monday that Grimm has a torn ACL, but coach Raheem Morris was more optimistic in his day-after press conference. Morris said Grimm "definitely" has an MCL injury, but may have avoided an ACL tear. The Bucs will turn to Larry Asante and Corey Lynch for an in-practice battle at free safety until Grimm returns. It appears the Bucs have no intentions of activating suspended FS Tanard Jackson at this time.

Bucs FS Cody Grimm is out for the season due to an ACL injury.

Grimm went down in the third quarter of Week 3 while trying to make a play on Michael Turner. It's the second straight year that the free safety is going to end up on injured reserve -- Grimm broke his leg last season. The Bucs may have to bring Tanard Jackson off the reserve/suspended list. For now, Corey Lynch and Larry Asante will battle to start at free safety.
Mon, Sep 26, 2011 10:41:00 AM

Bucs FS Cody Grimm was spotted after Sunday's win with a leg brace over his right knee and on crutches.

It appears to be a potentially serious injury. Grimm took a helmet to the knee in the third quarter, and had to be carted off. The Bucs may have to reconsider bringing back FS Tanard Jackson from the reserve/suspended list.

Bucs FS Cody Grimm was carted off with an apparent knee injury in the third quarter Sunday.

Grimm took a helmet to the knee from teammate Geno Hayes. He's likely done for the afternoon.
Sun, Sep 25, 2011 06:26:00 PM

Bucs FS Cody Grimm (ankle) started the team's preseason opener Friday night.

He recorded two tackles. Grimm broke his left fibula and ankle late last November after an impressive rookie season, and was said to be struggling with the injury early in camp. He will start on Opening Day, but the Bucs will have a tough decision to make once Tanard Jackson returns from suspension.
Sat, Aug 13, 2011 06:18:00 PM

Bucs S Cody Grimm is struggling in his return from a broken ankle early in camp.

It's nice that Grimm is practicing, but his burst isn't there yet and he's struggled to hang with tight ends in coverage. "I wouldn't say I'm 100 percent for sure," Grimm acknowledged. "It is definitely sore and stuff. But the only way to get the soreness out is to run on it." It's more reason for the Bucs to keep Tanard Jackson.
Sun, Jul 31, 2011 06:49:00 PM

Bucs S Cody Grimm (broken ankle) expects to be ready for training camp in August.

Grimm wasn't limited in recent player-organized workouts, so he should be good to go next month. He'll be in line for the starting free safety job if Tanard Jackson's suspension carries over to the 2011 season.
Sun, Jul 3, 2011 02:29:00 PM

Bucs S Cody Grimm believes he is 85-to-90 percent recovered from the broken ankle he suffered last November.

A seventh round pick last spring, Grimm ended up starting nine games for the Bucs after Tanard Jackson was suspended for the season. He played well, tallying 57 tackles, two interceptions and a forced fumble in 11 games. As long as he's healthy, he's in line for a lot of snaps in 2011.
