Bucs RG Davin Joseph suffered a broken kneecap in Friday night's preseason game against the Patriots. He's expected to be sidelined about 3 months but could end up being placed on IR. Joseph graded out just 48th in Pro Football Focus' 2011 OG rankings, but he was expected to be a key part of Tampa's power run-blocking line this season. His loss is bad news for RB Doug Martin, although Ted Larsen is a capable replacement. The Bucs' offensive line still projects as an above-average unit.
Update: Further testing revealed a torn petallar tendon. Joseph is done for the year.
