As the Buccaneers address one of their biggest questions on offense, a major question is swirling regarding the man who runs it.

Via JoeBucsFan.com, offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford is absent from the team after undergoing an undisclosed medical procedure.

The procedure went well,” coach Lovie Smith said. “He’s fine, alert, up.  Our staff will pull up the slack and we’ll go from there.”

Tedford won’t coach in the preseason finale.  For now, there’s no reason to think he won’t be available for Week One.

Whatever the condition, we extend our best wishes to Tedford as he recovers.
