Bucs lose Bidwell for the season

The new look Tampa Bay Buccaneers have lost one of the few players on their roster that has ever made a Pro Bowl.

The team placed punter Josh Bidwell on injured reserve Monday, confirming the team’s worst fears about his hip injury. Bucs G.M. Mark Dominik says the injury isn’t career-threatening.

Dirk Johnson will get the first crack at filling Bidwell’s shoes. Despite Bidwell’s Pro Bowl status, his loss probably doesn’t warrant more than the PFT-mandated minimum three paragraphs.
