Ryan Jensen carted off the field with knee injury

USA TODAY Sports

The Buccaneers may have a significant injury concern along their offensive line early in training camp.

According to multiple reporters on the Bucs beat, center Ryan Jensen went down with an apparent lower left leg injury. He was down for a while as teammates took a knee when the cart came out. Jensen did not put much weight on his left leg as he was helped into the cart and driven off.

After practice, head coach Todd Bowles said Jensen had suffered a knee injury. But he did not have any further details.

Jensen re-signed with the Buccaneers this offseason on a three-year, $39 million deal. He has been with Tampa Bay since 2018, playing nearly every offensive snap since he arrived.

Jensen started his career with Baltimore and became the Ravens starting center in 2017.

Robert Hainsey came in to replace Jensen at center after the injury. He was a third-round pick last year and appeared in nine games. He played 31 offensive snaps and 35 special teams snaps.

  1. It could be a big loss but at least it happened early enough in camp they can hopefully get his replacement up to speed.

  2. With the off season drama about going to Miami with Sean Payton but then having to back off of the back room negotiations because of the Flores situation and going back to Tampa, but getting the coach to “resign”, Tommy may have brought on the dreaded “Snake-bit Karma.” Just sayin’.

  3. Maybe the should tell Leonard to put BACK ON those 30 pounds and convert him to the offensive line.

  4. hope he is ok. he’s tough as nails. perhaps this would not have occured if he signed with Cincy.

  5. Jensen was a developmental player with Ravens and when he finally turned the corner as a Center they didn’t want to pay him top dollar at the position. He came from nothing to get two big contracts. If he’s out for a bit he still has some good years left and has made life changing money. Best wishes to Ryan and family.

  6. Lookout, Brady may retire again until they get a new offensive lineman, and then un-retire again

    Maybe TB can talk Alex Mack out of retirement

    **************

    SF still has his rights; he only played 1 year of a three year deal.

  8. Looks pretty bad Im in Tampa and no word yet. This is a HUGE loss for the Bucs if he’s out for the year. Lets hope he’s okay for TB12 s sake.

  9. He is a very good player with a nasty streak and plays after the whistle a lot and gets no calls against him because he is blocking for Tommy Boy. I hope he recovers completely after the 2022 season and is ready for training camp next year. He is the type of player you don’t like if he is playing for the other team, but you like a lot if he is playing for your team.

  10. He’s Tommy’s boy – should have stayed retired Brady. Injuries will ruin your comeback.
