This is a big blow for the Bucs. Nicks was a huge free agent acquisition for them in 2012. Hopefully he’ll be back soon.

Week 3 of the preseason will begin with Darrelle Revis, Carl Nicks, Davin Joseph and Lawrence Tynes still on the “proceed with caution” list.

Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis has continued to fully practice without any setbacks.
It continues to looks like Revis’ knee is doing great and he’ll be ready for week one. The Bucs also remain open to letting him play in a preseason game.
CB Darrelle Revis also practiced fully today and had another good day, no setbacks.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reporter on the NFL Insiders yesterday that the foot infection that Carl Nicks is dealing with could force him to miss a month of football, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Times.
With Nicks out, Cody Wallace or Jamon Meredith will likely step in for Nicks.

Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis is a full participant in practice and is on schedule play in Week 1 against his former teammates, the Jets.Fantasy Spin:Revis tore his ACL a little less than a year ago. Assuming he hasn't lost a step, Revis should be one of the most feared corners in the game and make the Bucs' pass defense, which gave up a league-worst 4,758 yards last...

Two sources told FOX Sports that the Bucs are bringing in veterans for tryouts on Thursday. One of them is former Dallas Cowboys kicker David Buehler.
