Tampa Bay Buccaneers Pro Bowl center Ryan Jensen was carted off the field during Thursday’s training camp practice. Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles revealed during his press conference that Jensen has a knee injury, but did not go into detail. Jensen is still undergoing tests to determine the severity of the injury, but NFL Network Reports that it is feared that he has sustained a significant injury. Meanwhile, a source said ESPN That it “doesn’t look good.”

Bowles didn’t have much information about the injury. “All I know right now is that he went down with the knee” before they “go from there” once they know the severity of the injury.

Pete Prisco of CBS Sports reported that Jensen threw his helmet in frustration after going down.

If the injury is as serious as is reportedly feared and Jensen misses time, it will be a major loss for quarterback Tom Brady’s offense.

The 31-year-old signed a three-year, $39 million contract extension with the Buccaneers this offseason. He has been with the Bucs since 2018 and helped them win the Super Bowl in their home stadium in the 2020 season.

He made his first Pro Bowl in 2021, allowing just two sacks during the regular season and helping the Bucs reach the playoffs, where they were knocked out by the eventual Super Bowl champion Rams.

Tampa Bay leads the NFC (+750, according to Caesars Sportsbook) thanks to Brady’s return to challenge for another Super Bowl title, following a brief 40-day retirement from the NFL.

SportsLine’s Stephen Oh projects that if Jensen misses the season, it will drop Tampa Bay’s Super Bowl hopes from 11.8% to 8.7%.
