The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Pro Bowl center Ryan Jensen to a new, three-year, $39 million deal back in March. The hope was to keep the Buccaneers’ impressive offensive line together for as long as possible.
But, as of Thursday, that could very well be in jeopardy.
Per Pewter Report, Jensen injured his leg in a collision with a teammate during practice. The extent of the injury is currently unknown, but it’s bad enough to where the Buccaneers carted Jensen off the field.
Second-year player and third round pick Robert Hainsey has taken over for Jensen and is currently playing with the 1s.

Per CBS Sports‘ Pete Prisco, Jensen threw his helmet in frustration, which is clearly not a good sign.

Todd Bowles should provide an update once practice is over.
Per Pewter Report, Bowles said after practice that Jensen’s injury is a knee injury. The extent of the injury is unknown.
