Jermaine Phillips Out for Season; Jeff Garcia Still Questionable

Only returning recently from a broken left arm, safety Jermaine Phillips is now out for the season after suffering a broken right arm in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Heading into the final two games of the season, this is horrible news as the Bucs could definitely use Phillips experience. Sabby Piscitelli looks like he can be a good player in this league, but is still raw at times.

It appears as if quarterback Jeff Garcia will be back on the field against the San Diego Chargers, but there still is some question. Garcia is being evaluated daily and the Bucs should know within the next couple of days if he's ready to go.

Derrick Brooks and Gaines Adams were also hurt against the Falcons, but there isn't definitive information regarding either missing time just yet.
