The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are winning 20-7, but they can't be happy about the results of this game so far. Through the first half, the Bucs have lost three important starters to different injuries. Right guard Davin Joseph's injury appears to be the most serious, as he was carted off the field after a lower leg injury. Joseph's leg got trapped, and judging by his reaction and the players' reactions, it appeared to be a very serious injury and he could miss significant time this year.

Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, who ended both his first two seasons on injured reserve with biceps injuries, was the first player to go down. McCoy was hit in the left knee on a cut block early in the game, but returned for one play some while later. After that, though, the defensive tackle went to the locker room to have his knee examined. It's not clear what or how serious his injury is exactly.

Adrian Clayborn suffered a left arm injury on an attempted fumble recovery. As with the other injuries, we don't know what the injury is exactly, but Clayborn has not returned to the game and went to the locker room for examination.
