TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers suffered an injury in the first quarter of their first game of the season against the Dallas Cowboys.
While he was attempting to cover Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb, Buccaneers cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting was hurt on the play. He tried to punch the ball out of Lamb’s hands and, after watching the replay, it appears Murphy-Bunting’s right arm got caught between Lamb and his teammate, Antoine Winfield Jr.
The trainers attended to Murphy-Bunting on the field. He was then helped from the field to the tunnel and was holding that arm.
The Buccaneers later announced on Twitter Murphy-Bunting was out for the rest of the game with an elbow injury.
