Tom Brady 'Heartbroken' Over Buccaneers' Pro Bowl Center Ryan Jensen's Knee Injury

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady will be missing one of his key protectors after center Ryan Jensen was carted off the field with a left knee injury during Thursday's practice.

While Brady is confident in second-year center Robert Hainsey, he admitted that the team is feeling the effects of Jensen's absence.

"He’s worked really hard," Brady said of Hainsey, per Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. "Obviously, everyone is heartbroken with what happened to Ryan, so it will take a little time. But [Hainsey] has got to step into the job and do a great job.
