Buccaneers must be wary of Detroit’s Kerby Joseph on Sunday

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will certainly have a challenge waiting for them when they take the field on Sunday in Detroit to face the Lions in the NFL divisional round.  

Between the Lions’ physical offensive line, strong play from Jared Goff, excellent skill position players, and tough front seven, there’s plenty to be concerned with going into the game.  

Unfortunately, there’s one particular additional worry that should be going through the heads of Buccaneer pass catchers as they go out on their routes: their knees and what unfortunate things Detroit safety Kerby Joseph might do to them. 

Over the last month, Joseph has earned attention – or notoriety – for what he has done to two opponents’ tight ends.  On Christmas Day against the Minnesota Vikings, Joseph went low and hit the knee of Vikings TE TJ Hockenson, who suffered a torn ACL and MCL as a result.
