NFL Media's Jeff Darlington reported Tuesday that Tampa Bay's second-year tight end is expected to miss four to six weeks with the strained shoulder he suffered in Sunday's win over the New Orleans Saints, per a source aware of injury.
The 6-foot-5, 262-pound target lit up the Titans for 110 yards off five catches in the season-opener. Seferian-Jenkins had just two grabs for 29 yards in the win over New Orleans, but continued to show the traits that made him a "Making the Leap" candidate over the summer.
It's a rough situation for Seferian-Jenkins, who was showing promise after a quiet rookie season. He was already shaping up as a favorite target for rookie passer Jameis Winston, who will miss his playmaking tight end.
Here are some other injuries we are monitoring Tuesday:
