Buccaneers Announce Official Tristan Wirfs Injury Update

A scary moment unfolded at Buccaneers training camp this Tuesday morning when offensive lineman Tristan Wirfs was carted off the practice field. Fortunately, it's not a serious injury; or an injury at all, for that matter. 

Bucs head coach Todd Bowles said during an appearance on NFL Network that Wirfs "just cramped up" during practice and that he's okay. 

"#Bucs coach Todd Bowles says on @nflnetwork that OL Tristan Wirfs 'just cramped up' during practice and that he’s ok," wrote NFL insider Ian Rapoport. 

Rarely do you see players carted off the practice field for just a cramp. It must have been a bad one, to say the least. 

Losing Tristan Wirfs to an injury would have been a devastating setback for the Bucs. They already lost starting center Ryan Jensen to a serious injury in training camp. 

Fortunately, it sounds like Wirfs is just fine. He's expected to be back at practice this week.
