Buccaneers have placed defensive

Panthers cornerback Ross Cockrell broke his left tibia and fibula during practice Monday at the team’s training camp at Wofford College.

The team said Cockrell will need surgery Cowboys Authentic Jerseys , but has not said if he is expected to miss the remainder of the season.

It is the second severe injury in three days for the Panthers, a team that went 11-5 last season and earned a wild-card spot.

Carolina lost starting right tackle Daryl Williams on Saturday to a dislocated patella and torn medial collateral ligament in his right knee. The Panthers have not said if Williams will have surgery or if he will try to recover without it.

Cockrell was injured when he collided with wide receiver Torrey Smith in the end zone while trying to break up a pass.

Several teammates openly grimaced and quickly looked away after checking on Cockrell, clearly distraught at the sight of his leg. Several players began helping him onto the cart and tapped him on the shoulder pads while others took a knee and prayed before he left on a cart.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera ended the practice session immediately after Cockrell’s injury.

”Ross was doing some really good things,” Rivera said after practice, before it was announced the leg was broken.

”He’s a wily veteran and a guy that has really done some really good things since he’s been here. It’s one of those things you have a guy who is going to contribute. It’s a tough one because he’s such a good person, too.”

Cockrell signed a two-year, $6.8 million free agent contract this offseason and was expected to compete for a starting spot opposite James Bradberry. Now the Panthers are expected to turn to either rookie Donte Jackson or Kevon Seymour.

Cockrell could be heard screaming ”leg is broke” after the collision.

”To hear a grown man scream Viktor Arvidsson Jersey , you know it’s not good,” Jackson said.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have placed defensive tackle Mitch Unrein on injured reserve and signed long snapper Garrison Sanborn.

Unrein, slowed during training camp and preseason by a concussion, is eligible to be designated for return from injured reserve. Sanborn re-joins the team two days after being released when the roster was trimmed to the season-opening limit of 53 players.

The Bucs also announced Monday the signing of 11 players to the practice squad, including linebacker Eric Nzeocha, who's part of the International Player Pathway program and not eligible to be activated during the season.

Others signed to the practice squad include offensive lineman Cole Boozer, cornerback Javien Elliott Brandon Saad Jersey , defensive ends Demone Harris and Patrick O'Connor, tight end Tanner Hudson, safety Godwin Igwebuike, defensive lineman Jeremiah Ledbetter, running back Dare Ogunbowale, linebacker Azeem Victor and wide receiver Bobo Wilson.
