The Tampa Bay Buccaneers' beleaguered offensive line will get some aid for Monday night's wild-card showdown with the Dallas Cowboys.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Jensen received plenty of first-team practice reps last week and is expected to play against Dallas. The Bucs opened his practice window late last month.
Jensen's return is a big boon for a Bucs offense that has struggled without the veteran center. The Bucs averaged a league-low 76.9 rushing yards per game in 2022. Jensen playing should immediately help Tampa's rushing attack against a Cowboy defense susceptible to the ground game. He also brings stability for Tom Brady, who has had to get rid of the ball quickly behind a banged-up offensive line.
