Buccaneers’ Donald Penn out for a few weeks with a calf strain

Buccaneers’ left tackle Donald Penn has a calf strain and will miss “several weeks” of Training Camp, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Donald Penn is not an elite left tackle, but he’s a solid one and the Buccaneers can’t afford to be without him once games start for real. Right tackle Jeremy Trueblood led the league in pressures allowed in the regular season last year and he would be even more lost if he had to move to the left side. Meanwhile, top backups Jamon Meredith and Demar Dotson are inexperienced. Fortunately, it doesn’t appear as if he’ll miss any real games.
