Tom Brady loses yet another weapon as his $82.5 million Pro Bowl WR suffers an injury

Tom Brady makes sure his team is always in contention for a Super Bowl, season after season. This offseason has already claimed two starters.

Tom Brady is known for leading a team that still has Super Bowl aspirations. The GOAT has 7 Super Bowl rings and numerous passing records. He also holds the highest win-loss ratio in NFL history.

Two seasons ago, Brady was able to win his last title with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In his first season as a Buccaneer, after some early ups and downs, the team came together. They hit their stride and looked dominant the rest of the way.

Within 3 interceptions on 3 consecutive second-half drives against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game, the Buccaneers emerged victorious. They then followed that up with a dominating victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in the big game.

In their Super Bowl win and all season, Ryan Jensen and Mike Evans were key. Jensen has been a key cog in the offensive line while Evans has 7 consecutive 1,000 yard seasons. Evans is an offensive weapon that has led the league in touchdowns since arriving.

Jensen and Mike Evans are both struggling with injuries in camp, putting Tom Brady in a world of injuries

Ryan Jensen injured his left knee during offseason training last week. The Buccaneers haven’t fully explained Jensen’s injury but it’s clear he’s going to miss a lot of time.

Head coach Todd Bowles said Jensen will be out for a long time, likely a few months. It is not sure that he will be able to play again this season. It will be determined based on the extent of the injury.

Meanwhile, Mike Evans fell in practice today with an apparent leg injury. He wasn’t taken like Jensen. Evans reportedly suffered a hamstring sprain. The extent of the injury is still unknown. The Bucs WR is on a five-year, $82.5 million contract he signed in 2018

This is nothing new for Evans as he has played with an injured hamstring for many games in previous seasons.

With a Pro Bowler already long injured, the Buccaneers can’t afford Mike Evans to run out of time as well. It could seriously hurt their Super Bowl aspirations.
