Ryan Jensen of the Buccaneers set off during training; The severity of the knee injury at the Pro Bowl is unknown

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Pro Bowl center Ryan Jensen was moved off the field during training camp Thursday. Buccaneers coach Todd Bowles revealed during his press conference that Jensen sustained a knee injury, but did not go into details. Jensen is currently undergoing tests on his left knee and the severity of the injury is not yet known.

Bulls did not have much information about the injury, say“All I know now is that he got down with a knee,” adding that when they know the severity of the injury, “they’ll go from there.”

CBS Sports’ Pete Briscoe reports that Jensen threw his helmet in frustration after falling.

If the injury was serious and Jensen wasted time, it would be a huge loss for midfielder Tom Brady’s offense.

The 31-year-old has signed a three-year, $39 million contract extension with the Buccaneers this off-season. He’s been with the Bucs since 2018 and in the 2020 season helped them win the Super Bowl in their home stadium.

He made his first Pro Bowl in 2021, which allowed him to have only two sacks throughout the regular season and helped the Bucs reach the playoffs, where they were knocked out by the eventual Super Bowl champion. rams.

Tampa Bay is the favorite in the NFC (+750, according to Caesars Sportsbook) to contend for another Super Bowl thanks to Brady’s return, after his very brief 40-day retirement from the NFL.

SportsLine’s Stephen Oh predicts that if Jensen misses the season, it will drop Tampa Bay’s Super Bowl aspirations from 11.8% to 8.7%.
