The Tampa Bay Buccaneers pulled off a huge upset on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. But, according to The Sports Capitol’s Ben Standig, the Buccaneers have lost a defensive player for the season.
Corner back Vernon Hargreaves III will miss the rest of the season. He is dealing with a shoulder injury.
He was injured in the fourth quarter against the Saints. The former No. 11 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft will miss more games in his career, as he already missed seven games last season with a hamstring injury.
Hargreaves III, who has been a bust in the first few years of his career, is the second corner, who is injured with the Bucs. Brent Grimes is also dinged up, but may give it a go on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Buccaneers brought in free agent corner Bashaud Breeland on Tuesday. They could use a veteran presence for the season if they decide to make a move.
Hargreaves III, who is a 23-year-old, and was born in Tampa, Florida, has spent the past three seasons with the team. He has made 26 appearances, including 24 starts. He has 111 tackles, one interception, two forced fumbles, and 16 pass deflections.
After starting all 16 games during his rookie season in 2016, Hargreaves III has made just eight starts in 10 games over the past two seasons. In those two seasons, he has 43 tackles, one forced fumble, and six pass deflections.
