Report: Hand Surgery For Vita Vea

June 27th, 2020

What happened to Vita Vea?

Joe’s not sure, but whatever happened it was enough to send Vea under the knife.

That’s the word from the Twittering of beat writer Rick Stroud.

Bucs DT Vita Vea suffered an unspecified hand injury and underwent a minor surgical procedure a few weeks ago. He may miss some time early in camp but will not have any limitations once the regular season begins.

So, we are to believe this was minor surgery in early June and Vea will have to sit out camp seven weeks later? He can’t practice with a club covering on his hand nearly two months later? That’s seems odd to Joe.

Regardless, this Vea news comes as word flowed yesterday of Jason Pierre-Paul having “minor” knee surgery.

Joe has no reason to believe Vea’s injury came at a Tom Brady workout, which some believe is a threat to national security.

  2. El Buco Realisto Says:

  4. Chesapeake Bucco Says:

    Hey El Buco, has to be ol stale biscuit’s fault, right?

  5. Jimmy Says:

    El buço isn’t a true fan! He’s a troll account!

  6. james west Says:

    it’s always one thing or another, or another and one thing, with this damn team, what’s next?

  7. Allbuccedup Says:

    JPP now Vea next Gronk then Brady. With the 1st pick in 2021 draft the Tampa Bay Bucs pick Trevor Lawrence.

  8. Cobraboy Says:

    My guess: Gatekeeper’s Thumb. Without surgery a person loses a significant amount of grip, and a DL needs a ton of hand grip.

  9. Pryda...sec147 Says:

    Sounds like he broke his hand pretty bad!

  10. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Neither this nor JPP are anything to worry about.

  11. SOEbuc Says:

    We shall see. NO ONE IN THEIR G-D MIND WAS SAYING JPP WAS GOING TO GET 12.5 SACKS IN TEN GAMES COMING BACK FROM A BROKEN NECK. You gotta keep the faith every year around this team, especially this year. Now is the time to keep the faith in the GOAT the most true Bucs fans.


    GO BUCS!!!

  12. BigHog Says:

    This is football! Someone will have a chance to step up in camp….not that V’s spot is in trouble.but someone will have a chance to develope their game …which does nothing but help the team!!! NE12 has invaded and infected ….just how will this all work out?

  13. Topdoggie Says:

    As a beaten down Bucs fan I’ve come to expect non stop bad news. Believing in curses is for the sumple minded but dam I am getting there.

  14. adam from ny Says:

    staying home during quarantine and “brushing the otter” can injure hands

  15. adam from ny Says:

    vita’s a tough guy…

    he should be ok from the sounds of it…

    good it’s hand as opposed to a foot…dude weighs like 350

  16. BringBucsBack Says:

    Is the cause of injury completely unattainable?

    If so then, it makes me wonder if it wasn’t gotten through some stupid behavior like slipping on a coconut & falling, arm-wrestling an amped-up drunk, adam’s suggestion or playing basketball.


    In true “Bucs Life” fashion; It’s an injury he’s had dating back to middle school & he just decided to address it now, 12 years later; two months before the season opener with the GOAT as your QB!?

  17. Sarasota Garey Says:

    probably had to wait longer for these procedures because of Covid19

  18. Lamarcus Says:

    Officially injury prone

  19. Stanglassman Says:

    This is the time of year all vets get surgical procedures done for injuries they played through during the season. I always wonder why they don’t take care of them earlier but this year he at least had a good reason to wait. It could have happened recently but the press release doesn’t specify when only the it happened and where on the body.

  20. Mike Johnson Says:

    LMAO here. You guys ain’t seen nothin yet. Wait until our 50 million dollar man goes down and all world Gabbert has to replace him.

  21. Roy T. Buford Says:

    “Joe has no reason to believe Vea’s injury came at a Tom Brady workout, which some believe is a threat to national security.”

    Too funny! It does seem odd. My guess is maybe some nerves recovering so he just can’t be banging it around.

  22. El Buco Realisto Says:

    Wait until it gets closer to players reporting, and a rash of mysterious injuries start to occur in the old vets of this team!!!!!!!!!! Some like Suh will have to weigh if it’s even worth it and will contemplate retirement!!!!!!!!!!!! And none of the “real” fans will blame any of the players that walk away with money on the table!!!!!!!!!!!! And the sheep should not be upset with any player walking away, but with the regime that loaded up for a One Year Window!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    go bucs!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. Joe in Michigan Says:

    If you think off season surgery for an NFL player makes you injury-prone, you really don’t have a clue.

  25. SOEbuc Says:

    Joe in Michigan… this year is so different. None of these guys are getting the physical rehab needed.

  26. Joe in Michigan Says:

    SOEbuc: Agreed. Someone posted above that Vea is “officially injury-prone”. NFL players having off season surgery is common, was my point.

  27. SOEbuc Says:

    And it is Vea were talking here. Biggest, strongest, athletic and possibly the best NT in the league.

  28. Youngbucs Says:

    Big Hog go see the wizard for a brain.

  29. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:

    JPP had his knee scoped. That’s not a big deal these days. They go in and clean it up. He will be fine for camp.

    Vea’s news concerns me more. Minor hand surgery doesnt keep you out 2 months.

  30. Allbuccedup Says:

    EL Buco Realisto predict in your great wisdom the Bucs record this year I predict 8-8.

  31. adam from ny Says:

    there is a 50/50 chance our record this year will be:


    #ZeroWinsZeroLosses #CricketsAtRayJay

  32. adam from ny Says:

    flo from progressive said:

    “don’t bring that mess around here brady”

    then she said:

    “i’m gonna need you to leave”

    and then tommy left the park

  33. DanBucsFan Says:

    @joe.. Get rid of el buco retardo.. PLEASE

  34. Better Plan??? Says:

    What is the better option? Tanking for Lawrence or Fields?
    Drafting a mid 1st round QB?
    Trading the farm to move up?

    Reality check Buc fans! The ownership went all in on a proven winner!
    Hello! Say it out loud. 6x Champ!! 43yr old, does he look like any of the 43yr old QB’s you can remember! Manning was 39 and a noodle arm.

    Relax… football is a vicious sport with no promise of tomorrow be thankful we have a legit shot! Was Crabby going to lead us to the promise land?

  35. Better Plan??? Says:

    Tired of the whining over being a legit contender!
    Some of these fans could screw up a free meal from Meals on Wheels!

  36. unbelievable Says:

    So right now we gave 1 starting D-lineman?

    ¿So that’s what happens when you put hands on the GOAT?
