Buccaneers’ Jensen Returns To Practice, Sort Of


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers started their seventh OTA Tuesday ahead of the 2023 NFL season. As reported by Fox 13’s Kevin O’Donnell, Jensen is present wearing a knee brace but not practicing.

Jensen would miss the entire regular season but returned for the team’s playoff game. His knee injury was severe, some thought career ending. So what exactly were his injuries?

Dan Pompei of The Athletic posted an article detailing Jensen’s injuries.

“We can’t really tell about your ACL.” Jensen was informed when the first MRI results came back. “It’s torn, but we’re not sure if it’s totally torn. Your PCL is torn., your MCL is torn all the way through. Your lateral meniscus has a bucket handle tear, and it’s flipped into the back nodule of your joint. You have a tibial head fracture and a cartilage fracture in your knee. So there are six major injuries.”

Jensen was activated January 16th ahead of the team’s playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. This after sustaining a brutal knee injury on the second day of training camp in 2022.
