Earlier this week it was announced that Buccaneers safety Chris Conte, who left Monday Night Football’s game against the Steelers with a knee injury, would be placed on IR due to that injury.
Today we learned that that wasn’t a new injury, and that Conte tried to play that game on a torn PCL.
There are plenty of questions here, but the main one is how Conte was cleared to play with a torn PCL, if the report by Schefter is true. We’ve seen players play through injuries when they “can’t injure it any worse.” But, according to Koetter, he said that Conte’s injury was worse after the game than what it was before.
So what happened?
Though that question has yet to be answered, the answer to Conte’s playing time now is that he’ll be sidelined for at least six weeks.
