Bucs guard Joseph carted off with left knee injury

Bucs right guard Davin Joseph was carted off the field in the second quarter of Friday night’s preseason game against the Patriots.

Although we didn’t catch the injury on our NFL.com Preseason Live Console, Stephen Holder of the Tampa Bay Times suggested Joseph may be seriously hurt. Ted Larsen replaced Joseph with the first-team offense.

Bucs defensive tackle Gerald McCoy hopped off the field earlier with an apparent lower-leg injury, as well, although it’s believed McCoy is fine.

Joseph might not be so lucky. A key cog in Tampa’s power-running offense, Joseph signed a $52.5 million contract two offseasons ago.

    Really terrible injury. The Bucs starters are playing well, but injuries are making this just a terrible game for the Bucs.

    By the way, when you guys are doing your weekly writeup about how terrible the replacement refs are, be sure to include the fact that the replacement refs in the Buccaneers – Patriots game messed up the COIN TOSS.

    The Buccaneers won the toss and the refs allowed the Patriots to select whether they wished to kick or receive.

    this isnt good…..though i dont think its going to turn out as bad a predicted. We need him and the whole o-line to step up(esp jermey trueblood). On a lighter note, im loving the new offense and defense is looking a lot better for what its worth…only 1 TD scored against the starters…… On another note…….why is preston parker still returning punts? wish that extension went to somebody worthy…

    I hope he is OK. He is the key to that offensive line! Larsen is not a good backup. GO BUCS

    Please don’t be season ending. Him and Nicks would have led a monster running attack.

    Josh freeman needs a strong running game. Hopefully its not too serious

    Go look at 2010 stats. Offense played great when he missed last 5 games.

    New traing schedule for NFL teams equals more injuries to players?
