It’s Official. Ryan Jensen Placed On Injured Reserve.

September 1st, 2022

Pro Bowl center Ryan Jensen might not play this season, but he certainly won’t be on the field in September.

Jensen got the official “injured reserve” designation today, as expected because of his bad knee injured five weeks ago.

Jensen is now off the 53-man roster and is eligible to return in four weeks. It seems the Bucs would be lucky to get him back in 14 weeks. The team still has not released the specifics of Jensen’s injury.

    It is a long season. So even if Jensen only was able to play a handful of games it would help.

  2. MonkeyMan Says:

    We’ll take anything he can give us at the end of the season. The road to us wining the Super Bowl this year will be bumpy. But that’s okay, putting that ring on will feel so much sweeter at the end of the year.

    We’re winning it this year boys and girls. Start planning your Super Bowl parties now. Start having some confidence and walk with a little swag.

    Joe we don’t know if, or when he’ll return, because the Bucs won’t tell us what’s wrong with I’m assuming his knee? I’m certainly not buying the knee is still to swollen to tell the extent of the injury. We knew Stinnie blew out his MCL, ACL 5 minutes after it happened, yet going on five weeks don’t know about Jensen’s? Nope, that’s B.S.. Don’t know why Bucs are even playing this won’t tell what the injury is game. They aren’t gaining any competitive edge. I doubt our week 14 opponent is worrying about Jensen perhaps being ready for that game. If Todd won’t admit he knows what it is when asked, at least follow up with what do the doctors believe it is? Really be hard to believe they don’t have any clue at all.

    Why the Romulan cloaking device?

    Everyone knows Jensen has a major knee injury.

  5. Bird Says:

    Yah. I agree. Whats the advantage of not saying its
    A partial tear to acl ? What is the advantage

    Cause if he can plat at some point with hainsey at left
    Guard…unless goedeke deserves it at some point…its a huge confidence booster

  6. Sean Says:

    It was expected. It frees up the spot for Logan Ryan.

  7. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    We should definitely know the extent of Jensen’s injury by now..

  8. Lt. Dan Says:

    Nary a word about resigning Logan Ryan to fill Jensen’s spot. Joesph – did you have a morning Bro-mosa?

  9. tampabayallday Says:

    Don’t care if they don’t release more details on his injury, keep the other teams guessing.

  10. BucitForever Says:

    Nice one Biff

  11. SB~LV Says:

    What comes after IR in 4 weeks? If he can’t play? Stay on the list?

  12. Maniac Buc Says:

    Nice enough good. I hope he recovers. From a football standpoint, I hope we never see him in a Bucs uniform again. The future is here. In Hainsey we trust!!!

    Maybe we can get a 5th round pick for him before the draft next year!

  13. Geno711 Says:

    Yes SB-LV.

    Jensen is allowed to stay on 4 weeks or 19 weeks. If Bucs wanted to only bring him back for the Super Bowl game they could.

    They are allowed to bring back up to 8 players from IR.

  14. Goatfarmer Says:

    Logan Ryan. How are you feeling, dude? Bucs obviously think real highly of you, cutting you after calling you the smartest player to have strap on a helmet.

    I wouldn’t blame him if he said “eff off.” Cut Darden to enable that space you needed, no one would have claimed him. No. One.

    Naw let’s piss off the best offseason signing the Bucs made.

    JL doesn’t do that without Todd’s approval.

    Todd? C’mon, man.

  15. Coran Says:

    Goat farmer, calm down. They’re pros. He’s not throwing a tantrum. The leader of the team is taking like 25m less than he could, many others have taken pay cuts and restructured etc. He sees this is a team that does what it needs to to win. Him agreeing to be the one cut is just him doing his part. There’s a report he’s already re-signed. We’re good.

  16. Lt. Dan Says:

    @GFarmer – cutting Logan Ryan was an obvious choice as he is a vested veteran and no subjected to waivers. There was an agreement (gentlemen’s handshake) I suppose, that he would be resigned by the Bucs the next day.

  17. lambeau Says:

    Be nice to know if Jensen had surgery–if no, an ACL tear is likely to be mild.

  18. Goatfarmer Says:

    All the machinations are understood. You could have done the same with Dard-on and gotten the same result. No one would have touched him, and then we wouldn’t have had to play a stupid, foolish game with one of the Bucs best defensive players.

    Todd’s ship is taking on water and we still have 10 days until the opener against Jerry’s Kids.

  19. Eddie Marz Says:

    Big loss, but at least we’ve had time to prepare. All teams have injuries, this is ours. GOBUCS!

  20. Richard Dickson Says:

    Do you cut someone you KNOW can’t be waiver claimed or someone you’re PRETTY SURE might not be?

  21. A Bucs Fan Says:

    @Goat Farmer Logan Ryan has already re-signed with the Bucs….

  22. Scurvy Dogs Says:

    Crazy how people are complaining about Ryan when a little bit of research will tell you he’s already re-signed.

  23. Goatfarmer Says:

    Glad he’s re-signed. He’s the only one that was unclaimable from waivers on the roster? Hard to believe. No one would suggest you waive Brady for a couple days while you horse around with your stupid Ryan Jensen magic show. Why not do that with some other vested veteran that isn’t going to be a starter and key leader? No one else has the kind of contract Logan Ryan has?

    The Todd Way.

    Cooper Kupp.

    Cee Dee Lamb, coming up.

  24. 74 Bucs Fan Says:

    Come on goatfarmer – we’ve all heard your reasoning. This was a smart move and the execs know what they are doing. You don’t release info on Jensen’s injury until he goes on IR – so now they can address. Relax a bit, all is well.

  25. geno711 Says:

    Goatfarmer is happy in his own world.

    The Bucs are happy in their decisions.

    All good.

  26. DungyDance Says:

    Now that he’s on I.R., I wonder if Jensen’s swelling will suddenly have come down enough for us to finally get the true scoop about the extent of his injury.

  27. Goatfarmer Says:

    Hey geno I’m in my world but not happy! And you’re right , the Bucs are happy with their decisions. Thinking about Cee Dee Lamb gives me Cooper Kupp PTSD.

  28. B.D Says:

    Maybe letting everybody know would hurt negotiations for trading for a starting center? If they k own bucs are desperate, their price goes way up?

  29. steele Says:

    I agree, Goatfarmer. It’s not just the Ryan/Ryan wink-wink but this entire camp and preseason. Yes, they could have tossed someone else instead of LR, and there are many deserve to be waived and sent packing (and replaced). But they just love their in-house guys here, even when they aren’t showing much.

    The common theme, which all of this sideways activity and noise obscures for many is that…the roster hasn’t been upgraded significantly in a way that is all-in/win-now for Tom Brady. It’s worse than last season’s. Next Scrub Up, rookies, Nassib…
