The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could be without an essential piece to their secondary as injuries continue to hit the defensive backfield
Hargreaves is scheduled to meet with Dr. James Andrews to get a second opinion on the injury on Wednesday.
It was a strong start to the season for Hargreaves, who needed to prove himself after Tampa Bay invested two top draft picks in defensive backs. He had a pass defense and seven total tackles on the day.
Losing Hargreaves is the last thing the Bucs need. The defense is still an issue, and with veteran corner Brent Grimes already dealing with injuries, Tampa Bay needs a find answers as soon as possible.
The trio needs to find a way to hold down the fort until Grimes returns. A repeat of last week’s performance would almost guarantee defeat. Unless the offense manages to match the franchises single-game scoring record again.
The former first-round pick may have to go under the knife to surgically repair the damage. Which could end most, if not all, of Hargreaves’ season.
With Hargreaves likely out for an extended period, the Buccaneers added some depth at cornerback by signing Marcus Williams. The former New York Jet and Houston Texan will slide into the back of the depth chart and provide depth and potentially some special teams production.
