TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) - Demar Dotson will miss the Bucs' offseason program as he recovers from a knee injury he experienced last year, NFL.com reports.
According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, Dotson underwent surgery late last week to repair his torn meniscus.
The right tackle was sidelined for five games last year after he ruptured a posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
According to Rapoport, Dotson will be missing organized team activities (OTAs) and minicap, but there is hope he will be ready for training camp.
It's unclear if the injury will impact any potential picks for the Bucs, given that we're 10 days away from the NFL Draft.
Dotson was signed by the Buccaneers in 2009 as a college free agent. Since then, he's played in 89 career games with 65 starts.
