Joseph, a two-time Pro Bowl selection, will be placed on injured reserve, meaning his 2012 season is over.

"It doesn't look good, but we'll get an evaluation (Saturday)," Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano said after the game, according to The Associated Press.

Schiano didn't elaborate on the injury, but Joseph tweeted that it could have been "worse."

Ted Larsen, a third-year veteran from North Carolina State, replaced Joseph after the injury.

Joseph sustained the injury when teammate Donald Penn blocked Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones into his leg.
