Bucs lose Talib, Faine for the season

The Bucs lost more than just a crucial divisional game against the Falcons Sunday. Cornerback Aqib Talib and center Jeff Faine are both done for the season.

Talib tore a tendon from the bone near his hip flexor early in the contest (he spent the rest of the afternoon jawing with Roddy White from the sideline). The injury, obviously painful, will not require surgery. Faine, who missed a chunk of time earlier this season with a quad injury, is out with a torn triceps.

Talib will be replaced by E.J. Biggers, who is coming off his best game of the year. Faine was replaced by Jeremy Zuttah during his quad injury, but Zuttah has since replaced injured right guard Davin Joseph (also done for the season). On Sunday, Zuttah filled in at center again, and rookie Derek Hardman stepped in at guard.

Sorry to hear about the injuries, Bucs fans :( I know the NFC South fans like to jaw back and forth with each other, but nobody likes to see players get hurt. Your team is up and coming and I feel the South is just going to get more and more interesting as time goes on. You guys are going places....and that place is up. Good luck to you all!

They don't make football players like they used to....Remember the days when Jack Lambert played on a broken leg?  Now these guys drop out for the year two at a time every week?  sad.

Talib will hurt more than Faine, but it's a good way to get all the young CBs some experience. Who knows how much longer Barber will play and teams need 3 good CBs with the way a lot of teams are spreading out the formations. Good luck to the Bucs, who can hopefully still go 3-1 or 2-2 to finish the year.

That sounds slightly painful.

This team has accomplished some remarkable things, but the law of averages seems to be catching up with them.  Last week it was Grimm and Joseph for the season, now Talib and Faine.  We have quite a bright future...now is the time to see what we have in Lynch, Larsen, Zuttah, Biggers and some other young talent.  Keep playing hard and get ready for a sick powerful NFC South next season!
