Lawrence Tynes injury: Buccaneers place kicker on non-football injury list

New, comment

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are continuing their roster cuts, with this time, an injury move.

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE

Lawrence Tynes is not progressing all that well, it seems. The Buccaneers are giving up hope that he's going to be on the roster this year, per Mike Garafolo, placing him on the non-football injury list. This means Rian Lindell is the overwhelming favorite to be Tampa Bay's placekicker this season.

I'm not sure what the point is, here. We'll pay your salary so please don't try to sue us? We're not admitting liability but your situation sucks, here's some money? I wonder what Lawrence Tynes's wife has to say about this.

Regardless, this is the second roster move the Bucs have made to get closer to the roster limit, after releasing Danny Noble. They have 20 more players to cut before 6 PM today.
