Vernon Hargreaves III, will be placed on IR with a serious shoulder injury. He suffered the injury late in the fourth quarter on Sunday after he broke up a pass inside the red zone.

This is rough news for Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers really couldn’t afford any long term injuries at cornerback, especially with Grimes already nursing a groin injury. Rookies Carlton Davis and M.J. Stewart will now be forced to play even bigger roles.

Hargreaves looked different so far this year and was primed to have a breakout year. Hello Bashaud Breeland?
