The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have observed misfortune with offensive linemen this season, the most recent involving left guardAaron Stinnie, who injured his knee in Saturday’s preseason loss contrary to the Tennessee Titans.

Head coach Todd Bowles confirmed Stinnie tore his ACL and MCL and has gone out for the growing season. Bowles says the Buccaneers have depth at guard but are always searching for more. Luke Goedeke is in line to start out instead of Stinnie, who was simply competing for the starting job at the positioning. Nick Leverett can be in competition for the work.

Stinnie is merely the most recent Buccaneers lineman to see a personal injury this preseason. Starting center Ryan Jensen suffered a knee injury and his return this season is unknown. Right tackle Tristan Wirfs left joint practice with the Tennessee Titans having an oblique injury, as the Buccaneers remain racking your brains on the shocking retirement of Ali Marpet and the free agent departure of Alex Cappa on the inside. The Buccaneers cleared the proper guard issue by acquiring Shaq Mason as he’s penciled in to the role.

Robert Hainsey may be the front-runner to start out at center. With the Stinnie injury, the Buccaneers could have three different starting linemen in Week 1 from this past year — another search for quarterback Tom Brady when he returns.

Bowles did involve some very good news on that front. Brady is expected back this week, even though there isn’t any specific date once the quarterback will go back to practice. The Buccaneers head coach hasn’t decided if Brady will play in the ultimate preseason game contrary to the Colts.
