Davin Joseph Injury: Bucs Guard Out 3 Months, According To Report

According to Bucs Nation, Tampa Bay Buccaneers guard Davin Joseph was expected to miss the entire season with a right knee injury suffered in Friday night's 30-28 victory over the New England Patriots in the Tampa's final preseason tune-up at Raymond James Stadium. But there is good news as it appears that Joseph will instead miss just three months after being diagnosed with a broken kneecap.

The two-time Pro Bowler was carted off in the second quarter when Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones was blocked into his leg.

The 38-year-old Joseph was expected to pair with Carl Nicks to bolster the running game and form one of the NFL's top duos at the offensive guard position. Ted Larsen is expected to fill-in for Joseph. The three-year veteran has started 14 games over the past two seasons.
