Reports from the four Monday press conferences by NFC South coaches are starting to come in and the early news out of Tampa isn’t good.

Center Jeff Faine has a triceps injury and will miss several weeks, Raheem Morris said. The Bucs could just insert backup center Jonathan Compass into the starting lineup, but that might not be their best option. Guard Jeremy Zuttah also can play center. The Bucs also could consider bringing back Sean Mahan, who they cut in the preseason.

On a positive note, receiver Antonio Bryant’s knee injury doesn’t appear to be serious and he should be able to play Sunday at Buffalo.
