"The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were suddenly confronted Tuesday with something far more pressing than the potential loss of cornerback Eric Wright for four games.
Already dealing with the loss of Pro Bowl right guard Davin Joseph, the team announced that fellow Pro Bowl guard Carl Nicks has also been lost for the season due to a left toe injury.
The team also announced that it has lost tight end prospect Danny Noble to a season-ending hamstring injury. Both Nicks and Noble were placed on injured reserve.
