The Buccaneers struggled in their matchup with the Browns and the end result was another disappointing loss.

This loss looks it came with an additional loss, however,  All-Pro tackle Tristan Wirfs.

Wirfs was carted off the field after a Browns defender was thrown into his leg.

Veteran Josh Wells has stepped in to fill the massive shoes left in Wirfs’ absence.

It was just about a year ago that Wirfs got hurt against the Philadelphia Eagles in the postseason and it opened the flood gates, which ultimately spelled the Buccaneers’ doom in their hopes to repeat as Super Bowl champions.

Hopefully, Wirfs comes out of this OK. Because the Buccaneers season is guaranteed to get much, much harder if he doesn’t.
