Davin Joseph Carted Off

August 24th, 2012

No Bucs fan could claim to be stunned or horrified when Gerald McCoy went down with an apparent knee injury early in tonight’s game.

McCoy has been so injury-prone, that it just couldn’t have been a shock.

But late in the second quarter when Davin Joseph was carted off with an apparent serious knee injury, well, Joe and Bucs fans everywhere had to take poise to ponder the serious impact this could have on the Bucs’ season.

Yeah, the Bucs had no problem in 2010 when Joseph was out and Derek Hardman came out of nowhere to fill in admirably and help lead LeGarrette Blount to a 1,000-yard season, but it’s just unrealistic to expect a reserve performance like that again. Joseph is a Pro Bowler and paid a king’s ransom for a reason.

Ted Larsen came in to fill-in for Joseph tonight. Larsen had told Joe last week that he was busting his butt to become “that sixth man,” after getting high praise from Greg Schiano last night.

There’s no official word on Joseph yet, but it seems like Larsen will have to be the fifth-man for a while.

    This guy appears to be nothing but “show” come on! Tired of the “ACT” cut him ===give someone that shows up every week (injuries happen-understandable ) and isn’t such a “sissy-wussy” boy!

    And in comes Dotson. Rotate him and Larsen. Or try Trueblood at that position and rotate him and Larsen.
