Buccaneers: 3 most infuriating aspects of the loss to the Bears
3 of 3
1. Vita Vea is now gone for the season
The most infuriating aspect of this game is the fact that the Buccaneers are now going to be down a starter for the rest of the season as Vita Vea suffered a season-ending ankle injury.
Vea had developed into a Pro-Bowl level nose-tackle and was anchoring down the middle of the defense nicely but he’ll now be gone for the rest of the season.
This loss would be much easier to swallow if you at least came out of it healthy and were able to go without losing any more bodies, but instead Tampa came away with a huge loss at a position where there’s simply not a lot of depth to begin with.
It’s all infuriating, no doubt, and it will be interesting to see if the Bucs can get things together before it’s too late.
