The Tampa Bay Pirates are preparing for harsh news in the early stages of training camp.
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network Insider reported Friday morning, according to sources, that while the team awaits the final word, the fear is the Pro Bowl position. Ryan Jensen He sustained a knee injury at the end of the season.
Todd Bowles, coach of the Buccaneers later told reporters that Jensen will be out for at least several months with a serious knee injury, but the team still doesn’t know how severe the injury is, in the athlete.
“I don’t know how serious that is, per se, but I know he’s going to miss some important time, up to two months,” Bowles said. “Whether he comes back later in the season, November, December, depends on what they found in the knee. But he won’t be available any time soon.”
On Thursday, it was Jensen I got out of the field of practice After tangling during exercise. The footballer Pro Bowler threw his helmet while lying on the grass, indicating the severity of the injury.
If he had already finished this season, it would be a huge blow to him Tom Brady and Bucs. Jensen signed Three-year contract worth $39 million In March to return as the Brady hub, hoping to cement an internal offensive line that lost both goalkeepers from last season.
Now the Bucs are preparing to break down three new internal barriers. Robert Hennessy, who was drafted in the third round last year, is the lead in-house candidate to replace Jensen at the center.
Tampa could also look to add a veteran, with free agent options including JC Tretter, Matt Paradis and Billy Priceamong other things.
Jensen’s loss, and the toughness he brings home, throughout the entire season, is a tough way to start their quest to return to the Super Bowl. But we’ve seen Brady win inexperienced positions in the past.
