The Buccaneers may have bigger problems than being 1-2.

Defensive end Adrian Clayborn left the loss at Dallas with what appeared to be a serious right leg injury. According to Stephen Holder of the Tampa Bay Times, several players suggested the injury was season-ending.

Clayborn was emotional as he left the locker room wearing a brace from thigh to ankle, and his teammates were clearly upset.

“He’s the beast on our defense,” defensive tackle Gerald McCoy said. “You can always expect a big hit from him or a dynamic play of some sort. That’s what he means to our defense.”

Asked about Clayborn’s condition, coach Greg Schiano said only: “We’re going to have to wait and see until tomorrow.”

Clayborn had 7.5 sacks last year, and was the one consistent source of pass-rush for the Bucs.

    Over such a pointless game too. The offense could have at least gave these boys an effort for the hard work they put in. Polar opposites out there today.

    Too bad about that injury. Bucs D has been pretty good, like old Bucs D. As for the offense, Bucs coaches have transformed a big mobile QB into a statue. Freeman looks confused, refuses to scramble or run when that option is there.

    Karma really? I’m a Giants fan and invade any one has forgotten, this is football. It wasn’t a cheap shot at the end of the Bucs G-Men game. It was TB saying we are on a comeback and will hit you in the mouth, that’s it.
