Just when things looked their bleakest for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a new beacon of hope has revealed itself. It is just what the Buccaneers need.

While many are sleeping, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times dropped a bombshell that no doubt woke at least a good amount of people out of their slumber. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have initiated the 21-day practice window of stud center Ryan Jensen, meaning he could return to the Buccaneers as soon as this Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers.

Yes, you read that correctly. Please take moment to take this all in.

Crazy right?

It’s true though. Ryan Jensen could be back in the Bucs starting lineup as soon as this Sunday when they take on the Panthers with first place in the NFC South on the line. That is a sentence put in writing that is still beyond belief, but here we are. Of course, the thought of Jensen returning to action was also considered unheard of, but once again, we’re here.

Come to think of it, it seemed almost impossible to find any updates not the training camp injury that forced the Buccaneers to place the center Tom Brady championed for on injured reserve on the first day of September.

Nevertheless, Jensen looks like he could be back for a potential playoff run. Of course, the Bucs have to steer the ship out of the rough waters in order to get their first. However, with this news, anything is possible.

It’s no secret that the offense of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has been struggling, but this could be the shot in the arm the unit has been waiting for. Of course, it will take Ryan Jensen a bit of time to get back into football shape, but make no mistake about it, this news is one that should have fans all the way back in, as suddenly the darkness looks to be turning to the dawn.

Next. Now for another third of the game that needs fixing. dark
