The Buccaneers have now lost first-round picks in back-to-back weeks.

Bucs coach Bruce Arians just told reporters there that defensive tackle Vita Vea suffered a broken leg in last night’s loss to the Bears.

Arians called it a “big, big loss,” and said: “I don’t know if there was a better nose tackle out there.”

Without Vea, the Bucs will need Rakeem Nunez-Roches to play a bigger role, such that they can replace a player such as Vea.
