As if things couldn’t get as bad as the scoreboard was, the Buccaneers had to watch their starting defensive end William Gholston go down with a neck injury midway through the third quarter during the Saints game.
Gholston appeared to get hit in the head by one of the Saints offensive tackles, not maliciously, though. He then went down to the ground with he hands near his neck.
Gholston was attended by trainers, wrapped pretty heavily to stabilize his whole body, then was carted off. It was later announced that he had a neck injury. We can report that Gholston was moving his limbs while on the ground before being carted off.
