Michael Adams Injury: Buccaneers have three healthy cornerbacks

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have cornerback problems with Michael Adams' injury.

Michael Adams was signed this offseason to ostensibly be a solid backup and possible slot cornerback. It seems Michael Adams had surgery today, which likely means that he's out for quite some time.

We don't know the severity of the injury or surgery yet, but we do know he suffered a knee injury against the New York Jets. I expect that Greg Schiano will update us on his status later today.

Of course, this leaves the Buccaneers with just three healthy cornerbacks in Darrelle Revis, Leonard Johnson and Johnthan Banks. Undrafted rookie cornerback Rashaan Melvin might get healthy for the upcoming game against the New Orleans Saints, but relying on undrafted rookie cornerbacks tends to backfire. As we saw last year.

And with that, we're back to a common refrain: the Buccaneers lack depth at cornerback. How long has it been since the Bucs had any cornerbacks? For as long as I can remember the Bucs were perpetually adding cornerbacks (and failing to find good ones). It's getting slightly ridiculous at this point.
