Cam Gill Had Surgery

August 16th, 2022


Joe had a hunch something was up. But not this.

Apparently Bucs outside linebacker Cam Gill had surgery on his lisfranc injury after suffering the injury Saturday night against Miami. A lisfranc injury is a foot issue , and Joe understands it to be very painful.

Now we know why the Bucs jumped so quickly to almost immediately sign former backup Carl Nassib..

This also explains why Bucs coach Todd Bowles said he hoped to have Gill back this year. That seemed awfully extreme to suggest at the time. But now we know.

Gill is in his third season with Tampa Bay and is best known for his half-sack of Patrick Mahomes in the Super Bowl.

    Oh yeah Joe… it can be really a bad deal. I’m no doctor, but this is what I leaned when it happened to me. Correct me Doctors, if I’m wrong about any of it.

    Most of the bones aren’t really huge in the foot. You have a crack or a small break, if you are lucky, they stay in line and mend like most broken bones. I was lucky. You break them and they shift out of place, and it is screw and plate time to line up and hold. And sometimes ligament damage. Without that surgery, the foot is never stable again.

    Welcome back Carl Nicks!!

    I personally don’t think either Lisfranc fracture or turf toes are funny to anyone that has ever been an athlete. Or anyone else that has had them. And especially when they happen to Bucs players. But clowns must try to create their Yucks, I guess.

    Hopefully he has a full recovery and can play next year.
    Jensen is the one I am worried about.
    If he tries to play in a few months and then has to have off-season surgery that would not be good for this time next year

    I’d rather welcome back JPP,… i’m not sure why everyone is happy with this signing, but Nassib is not very good. Stats are not impressive and the Raiders dumped him.

    Oh and, SUH.

  7. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    That was quick with the surgery…….I guess the sooner the better for Gill.

    I’m OK with Nassib replacing Cam Gill….I still think we will end up bringing in another FA Edge Rusher…..

    B4dever. Can you imagine working in your office as an Office Manager. Your company says, we have a new Office Manager. We would love to have you stay at half your salary, and reside in that smaller desk in the corner of the office? And if the Office Manager is sick, we might let you use his/her desk.

    Well, most would say, no thanks. You moved on. And I’m not going to come to the job and look the same people in the eye that were my subordinates, and now I am barely even their equal. Rarely would happen.

    And I don’t think Suh and JPP will come back here.

    TTTF. It is the kind of injury where waiting and second opinions won’t accomplish much. Better to get it done and start the healing process. And if ligaments are completely torn, time would probably be of the essence. Here again… medical professionals… I await any corrections.

  10. BucsfanFred Says:

    It seems the Raiders are always in turmoil.
    His contract averaged 8.3 mil. New regime. New scheme.
    I doubt Carl’s deal is guaranteed so if he sux we spit him out.

  11. BucsfanFred Says:

    Final cuts next week. A decent cap cut or two could come available. If they’re vets no need to clear waivers. With luck

    Lisfranc Fracture
    A Lisfranc fracture is a type of broken foot. Like all fractures, the treatments you’ll need and your recovery time will depend on the severity of your original injury. You might need surgery. Most people need to wear a cast or boot for six to 12 weeks, and it can take a year or more to return to intense exercise like running.”

  13. SlyPirate Says:

    Carl was voted by the players as a Team Captain during his last season with the Bucs. He is well respected and a great addition to the team.

  14. PassingThru Says:

    Lisfranc injuries are very slow to heal due to the both the stress endured and the relatively low blood flow to that region of the foot.

  15. Goatfarmer Says:

    Darn, did I put the KoD on Gill by naming him my unexpected breakout player?

    I suck.

  16. HC Grover Says:

    Good grief another one bites the duts. Fill up the practice squad. At this rate they will all be starting in December.

  17. Woodenman Says:

    Probably so goat.

  18. Thadeus Says:

    Nassib was signed because he’s one of “those” people. And the Bucs feel they have to be “progressive”.

  19. Capt.Tim Says:

    Terrible news for Gill.
    Get well soon young man!
    Welcome back Carl Nassib!
    Hated to see him leave, glad to have him back. He was a very goid player here, and well respected by his team mates.
    He’ll gelp our pass rush!

  20. mark2001 Says:

    Thadeus… have to call out BS on that one. The Bucs don’t need to sell tickets. They signed him because he knows the system and played well here. And we need a good backup.

  21. Irishmist Says:

    Thadeus- I guarantee he is not the only one of “those people” playing in the NFL. At least he had the guts to be open about who he is, unlike a certain drama queen we could mention. I respect him for that.

  22. David Says:

    Here’s to Gil getting healthy. He seemed to be getting better each year.


    As for JPP, how do you not realize that he’s not healthy? His body is equivalent to a 45 year old now It ain’t happening anymore for him. He’s a half the player he was and he probably wants a ton of money, if he can even play. No thanks, it was good while it lasted

  23. DoooshLaRue Says:

    JPP was great, but I do believe he’s done.
    Welcome back Carl.
