TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Bay Pro Bowl center Ryan Jensen injured his left knee and was carted off the field near the end of practice on Thursday.

Neither coach Todd Bowles nor general manager Jason Licht would speculate on the severity of the injury, which occurred with players wearing shorts, shirts and helmets during a non-contact two-minute drill on the second day of training camp workouts.

“It’s unfortunate right now because there was nothing fancy going on in there,” Bowles said. “We’ve got to look at the tape and see what happened. It didn’t look like anything.”

Licht said it could be a few days before the Buccaneers learn how long Jensen might be sidelined.

Second-year pro Robert Hainsey replaced Jensen for the remainder of the drill. Another backup offensive lineman, Nick Leverett, will also take some snaps in practice while the starter is out.

“Right now, we feel terrible for Jensen. Don’t have any update on that. We won’t for some time,” Licht said. “We have some tests you have to wait a couple of days before you can get them. You have to wait for swelling and things like that to go down.”

Jensen, a ninth-year pro beginning his fifth season with Tampa Bay, was a first-time Pro Bowl selection in 2021.

He was the first player the Bucs re-signed after Tom Brady ended a brief retirement in March, with the 31-year-old center agreeing to a three-year, $39 million contract rather than relocating in free agency.

Mariota, Ridder dominating QB snaps at Falcons training camp

There’s no shortage of snaps for Marcus Mariota and rookie Desmond Ridder at the Atlanta Falcons’ training camp. Ridder and Mariota are taking almost every snap. The only other quarterback in camp, Feleipe Franks, is spending most of his time at tight end. Second-year coach Arthur Smith wants to give Mariota, who opened camp as the starter, and Ridder, a possible long-term option, as much time as possible. Ridder says he's grateful for all the work. Ridder made a strong early impression as a quick learner at the rookie camp and minicamp. Even so, Mariota opened camp as the starter.

AP source: Jets' Wilson out 2-4 weeks with knee injury

A person with knowledge of the injury says New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson is expected to miss two to four weeks with a bone bruise and meniscus tear in his right knee. The person told The Associated Press the timeline for how long Wilson is sidelined will be determined by an arthroscopic procedure to repair the meniscus, pending a second medical opinion. Tests after the game indicated the ACL was intact and an MRI on Saturday morning revealed the exact nature of the injury. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the team hadn’t announced details. The New York Post first reported details of the diagnosis.

Saints preseason opener features 1st-rounders Olave, Penning

New Orleans Saints first-round draft choices Chris Olave and Trevor Penning are looking to parlay standout performances in their first NFL training camp into promising preseason debuts. Olave was taken 11th overall out of Ohio State. Penning was selected 19th overall out of Northern Iowa. Their first live action against another team comes Saturday night in Houston. Olave says he senses the combination of speed and sudden change of direction that served him well in college will translate at the pro level. Penning says he loves the idea that fans may be inclined to zero in on the way he plays against the Texans instead of merely following the ball.

Ridder leads Falcons to late victory over Lions 27-23

Rookie quarterback Desmond Ridder threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to Jared Bernhardt with 1:30 left to give the Atlanta Falcons a 27-23 win over the Detroit Lions on Friday. The Lions took a 23-20 lead on Riley Patterson’s 28-yard field goal with 5:57 to play, then forced Atlanta into a three-and-out. Detroit quarterback David Blough, though, fumbled at his 33 with 2:00 left. Facing fourth-and-9 from the 21 with 1:37 left, Atlanta coach Arthur Smith decided to avoid preseason overtime. Ridder dodged two pass rushers and Bernhardt fought off Cedric Boswell’s coverage attempt to make the catch just inside the end zone.

Watson is facing a potential year-long suspension. He spoke before Cleveland’s exhibition opener in Jacksonville, his first game since Jan. 3, 2021, with the Houston Texans. Watson was suspended six games by independent arbiter Sue L. Robinson, who concluded he violated the league’s personal conduct policy and lacked remorse. Watson acknowledged he's made mistakes and that there are decisions he would like to have back.

Pickett's game-winning drive helps Steelers beat Seahawks

Kenny Pickett threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Vaughns with 3 seconds to play and the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Seattle Seahawks 32-25 on Saturday night in the preseason opener for both teams. Pickett, Pittsburgh’s first-round pick in 2022, is competing with Mitch Trubisky and Mason Rudolph to replace retired two-time Super Bowl winner Ben Roethlisberger as the Steelers starting quarterback.

Browns return specialist Jakeem Grant Sr. was placed on injured reserve after tests confirmed he tore his left Achilles tendon during practice. Grant will miss the season, forcing Cleveland to find another option to fix its lackluster return game. The 5-foot-6 Grant signed a three-year contract worth up to $13.8 million in March. Grant got hurt at the end of a pass route in one-on-one drills while battling cornerback A.J. Green for the ball. Grant suffered a similar tear in 2018 with Miami.

Titans have competition for backup QB job thanks to Willis

The Tennessee Titans have a competition for the job backing up Ryan Tannehill. They also want to see rookie Malik Willis throwing more. Coach Mike Vrabel pulled Willis two plays into their first drive of the third quarter after the quarterback scrambled instead of throwing in a 23-10 loss Thursday night to Baltimore. Willis showed off his legs running for a touchdown. He also had a 48-yard pass play. Vrabel said Friday they wanted Willis to throw and the rookie didn't. Vrabel says he's sure Willis will rip it the next time he has a chance.
