Buccaneers S Jermaine Phillips broke his arm against Dallas Cowboys

Tampa Bay Buccaneers S Jermaine Phillips may have broke his arm in Sunday's demoralizing loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He left the game in the first half. Sabby Piscitelli will have to carry the load in Phillips absence. There hasnt been an official word on Phillips status, but Defensive Coordinator Monte Kiffin pretty much said it all:

"We're going to miss him," Kiffin said. "But that's why we have Sabby Piscitelli. He'll do good. He's got to come through for us. And we've got Will Allen. He's got to be ready to rotate now" - from Stephen Holder of the St. Pete Times

That's a huge blow to this defense. Jermaine Phillips was easily having his best season in a Bucs jersey. He has an interception, several huge hits, and a fumble return for a touchdown thus far into the season. Sabby Piscitelli has played very well when called upon this season whether it be on Special Teams or on defense by contributing a forced fumble, an interception, and several hard hits of his own. He and Tanard Jackson really have to up their game in order for this defense to shoulder the loss of Jermaine Phillips.
