Tampa Bay defensive end Adrian Clayborn will miss the rest of the season because of a right knee injury that will require surgery.
Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano made the announcement Monday, a day after Clayborn was hurt during the second half of a 16-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
Clayborn was the 20th overall pick in the 2011 draft. As a rookie, he started all 16 games and led the Bucs with 7 1/2 sacks.
The second-year pro had two tackles and no sacks in three games this season.
Clayborn was placed on injured reserve, and Schiano said the Bucs are weighing options for replacing him. Daniel Te'o-Nesheim and George Johnson are the team's backup defensive ends.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano said he would call a blitz again on an opponents "victory formation", which he did Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.
The Bucs, down 16-10 to the Cowboys, went after the ball three straight times at the end of the game. Dallas was ready for it.
Schiano showed Sunday that he will do it his way no matter what the public or other...
The Buccaneers play in a very difficult division, and they're still busy picking up the pieces from the short-lived Raheem Morris era. The man the team chose to re-build with is Greg Schiano, but he shouldn't get too comfortable. He could be gone at the end of the year.
As a general rule, I don't like to let my personal biases into my writing, especially on...
With defensive end Adrian Clayborn done for the season, Da’Quan Bowers is hoping to help the Buccaneers out once he comes off the PUP list after week six.
“There is still a long ways to go, I’m still about four weeks away,” said Bowers, who was placed on the physically unable to perform list a month ago. “Right now, I’m just taking it day by day. It’s up to coach (Greg...
NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp has always had a big mouth. When he played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders, he could back up his talking with his play on the field. But as an analyst, Sapp’s talking is starting to get him into trouble. Between other off the field incidents, Sapp was already on thin ice in terms of his job security with the NFL Network.
The Dallas Cowboys beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a score of 16-10. However, the score could have been one less touchdown for the Bucs as their offense could not get anything going.
Tampa Bay started off quick when Aqib Talib stepped in front of Cowboys’ wide receiver Miles Austin to intercept the pass from Tony Romo. Josh Freeman would go on to throw a one yard touchdown pass...
In the latest example of his inability to think before he speaks, Warren Sapp has called Brandon Marshall a retard in a very public forum. As an analyst, Sapp is paid to have opinions and his employers likely encourage him to be a bit outrageous/controversial, however, he has shown on a number of occasions that [...]
It’s been a tough season so far for the replacement officials in the NFL. It seems to be obvious to almost every NFL player, coach and fan, who’s name isn’t Roger Goodell, that the replacement reps aren’t up to par with the currently locked out officials. We all know that the old officials made mistakes, but the amount of mistakes seemed miniscule compared to what we’ve...
