Hamstring Injury Emerges For Ryan Jensen

November 15th, 2018

No, this has nothing to do with center Ryan Jensen rolling a snap back to Ryan Fitzpatrick to quash a second-half drive against the Redskins.

Yesterday, Jensen did not appear on the Buccaneers’ official injury report. But today he was listed with a hamstring injury and was “limited” in practice.

That timing usually means something happened in practice.  There’s always a chance it was a hot-tub/champagne injury, but Joe doubts that. Jensen isn’t former Bucs running back Derrick Ward, king of the South Tampa pool party scene.

Man, Joe’s got fingers crossed that Jensen stays healthy. A 40-degree day at the Meadowlands on Sunday isn’t the best tonic for a bad hammy. Jensen hasn’t had a great year, but the alternative is a scary thought.

    Waste of money. We haven’t had a good center in a long time

  2. Wombat Says:

    Is Jeff Faine still under contract? If not I think he owes us one or tow games after all the money HE stole!!!!

    Highest paid center is another Licht bust

    Jenson is a selfish players cant hold hi emotions in check

  5. cmurda Says:

    I don’t know. Jensen may not be the best center in the NFL as he is being paid to be but he’s been okay. There are far bigger issues on this team like, um, QB.

  6. FortMyersDave Says:

    Does it really matter if Manning just dumps off to Barkley and he breaks what other teams would limit to a short 3 or 4 yard play to an explosive one of 20 plus yards to set up TD passes to O’Dell Beckham if the RB does not get the TD himself???????? Bucs are in such a free fall right now that it seems like whatever can go wrong will! I am amazed that a few of the Vegas books still have this game as a pickem or the Giants only favored by 1. I want the Bucs to win but this is like the late 80s all over again with Perkins. Bad coach, poor drafts, bad free agent signings equal teams that are lucky to go 6 and 10 (just enough wins to miss out on the top shelf gems in the April draft). This team has a better chance of going Rah and dropping 10 straight…….

    Mankins needs to tell these guys where the secret BBQ joints are.

  8. LakeLand Says:

    OBJ needs a ‘highlight reel’ game

    This maybe it against the Bucs secondary

  9. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    Fitz is gonna be running for his like out there (like usual).

  10. AleteredEgo Says:

    We should be able to get a center with our 2nd round pick next year 😉

    Watching this franchise is like watching a bad car wreck where there are fatalities and its hard to look.

  12. Bucs Fan #7423 Says:

    The buccaneers are full of beta male simps, especially big fat softie Gerald McCoy and “make the worse decision” Jamies Winston

  13. jjbucfan Says:

    Sweezy has a solo tackle tonight- pretty sure that is one more than Vea for the year, just sayin’😜

  14. Rod Munch Says:

    If he can’t play I’m sure the coaches will have the brilliant idea of moving Marpet back over to center (I like Marpet but he’s not a center, he’s a guard) and putting Cappa in at guard (who looked like he didn’t even belong in the NFL all preseason), that way you can make two positions weaker instead of one!

  15. tnew Says:

    jj… Sweezy looks good so far. I’ve been isolating on him. Coaching?? Scheme??? IDK.

  16. Bucs Fan #7423 Says:

    Pretty sure Sweezy knew Bucs organization was crap so he did whatever he needed to collect his money and leave. Now he’s starting on another team!!!

  17. Bucs Fan #7423 Says:

    I swear the true problem is our ownership. The glazers spoiled brats do not know how to run an NFL business (except for collecting paychecks!!!!)

  18. Bucs Fan #7423 Says:

    Glazers eating lobster tonight, they don’t care about Bucs fans problems

  19. Bucs Fan #7423 Says:

    Glazers are beta males running a beta male team

  20. tnew Says:

    Sweezy looks good. Better than any play that the Bucs have had at right guard at any point. Must be Winston..

  21. Buccfan37 Says:

    I don’t know what to think about the Bucs overall any longer. Nothing changes much like winning. Eagerly awaiting the change to competing once again. The Bucs have become a soap opera of losing, each episode uglier than the last in a downward spiral of man I must be a glutton for punishment.

  22. Rod Munch Says:

    If you lived through the Cloverhouse era you wouldn’t be complaining about the Glazers. It can be much, much, worse.

  23. TiredBucFan Says:

    It is much much worse because it’s now, not 30 yrs ago.

  24. DBS' Says:

    It is worse. It is now. And same kind of garbage product being put not the field for the fans.

  25. LakeLand Says:

    JR Sweezy is garbage

    One of the lowest rated guards at PFF
    44.8 | 70th ranked
    He’s tied with Caleb Benenoch
    He looks bad every time I watched the Seahawks

  26. tnew Says:

    Agree, and I have seen the PFF rating. But watching him tonight, he looks good especially in the running game. Anything that ties he and Benenoch, I do have to question. No way are they in the same ball park. Just on raw effort, I’d rather have Sweezy. Remember, PFF are the same group that rated OJ80 as the worst draft pick of 2016.

  27. tnew Says:

    PFF is very unkind to Ryan Jensen.

  28. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I believe Koetter covered this in his press conference. I think he said it was a minor thing and Jenson might still play, but that they have three options for center if he cannot: Evan Smith, Ali Marpet, and Alex Cappa.

    Yeah, that last one surprised me too. Apparently, they’ve been having Cappa practice at center. Koetter said he’s the least ready though.

    My first thought on hearing this?

    None of the other rookies were ready either, but injuries put them in the fire.

  29. Lamarcus Says:

    Hey. Jensen been alright. Early on he was the ground alot been he has been solid. I don’t see what other ppl see. Yeah he missed a few blocks but this is not a constistent team Jensen is lined up next to Benenoch so there you have it

  30. Fire Light Says:

    Jenson got a lot of credit to begin the season. Maybe Licht got this one right. Since he got sick the Bucs have only won one game.

  31. El Buco Realisto Says:

    Ali Marpet was a better center!!!!!!!!

    Go Bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!

  32. LakeLand Says:

    OJ Howard deserved the low grade from PFF last season

    He played more than 600 snaps. He ran a route on about 40 percent of those snaps. What happened on the other 60 percent?

    His run-blocking grade rated 47th out of 54 qualifying tight ends. His pass-blocking grade rated 69th out of 74 qualifying tight ends.

    This season he’s running more routes than blocking
    He has the highest grade at PFF among TE
    His grade is 86.9

    “If you lived through the Cloverhouse era you wouldn’t be complaining about the Glazers. It can be much, much, worse.”


    Absolutely 100% true, Rod. — At that time, ownership was completely hopeless. I do NOT feel like the Glazers are not trying. They just may need to go back to the drawing board unfortunately.

  34. Rod Munch Says:

    Incompetence isn’t the same thing as not trying. Plus the Glazers got this team a SB, that counts for a lot, and if you don’t believe me talk to any Vikings fan, or if you can find one, any Falcons fan.
