Training camp continues to haunt the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
During the early stages of training camp, Pro Bowl center Ryan Jensen suffered a season-ending knee injury. Unfortunately, the hits just keep coming for the Buccaneers.
Wide receiver Tyler Johnson suffered a lower-body injury during individual drills this morning. Moments later, Buccaneers cornerback Zyon McCollum tweaked his hamstring.
To make matters worse, All-Pro offensive tackle Tristan Wirfs left Thursday’s practice with a left hamstring injury. This injury occurred during a passing drill.
Buccaneers fans are understandably frustrated by all these injuries.
“Jesus Christ,” said one fan. “This is getting ridiculous. Finish the practice now!”
“My expectations for this season, based on just training camp and all the injuries, are getting lower every day,” tweeted a second Bucs fan.
“This just keeps getting worse,” another fan wrote. “I hope it’s not serious.”
Johnson, McCollum and Wirfs may have avoided long-term injuries. Regardless, this is a horrible start to Thursday’s practice for the Buccaneers.
Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles should provide updates on those injuries after practice.
