Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Connor Barth Will Miss 2013-2014 NFL Season Due to Achilles Tendon Tear

Connor Barth, kicker for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, has suffered a devastating injury for his position: an Achilles tendon tear in his kicking foot.

Apparently, the injury occurred during a charity basketball tournament, which some NFL players were competing in last week.

Barth underwent surgery on the tendon earlier this week and seems to be doing well and staying positive.

An Achilles tendon tear is a serious injury and Barth is expected to be out for quite a while. He has said he hopes to be back to kicking in six months, but recovery for this type of injury can take nine months to a year.

The Buccaneers have signed Lawrence Tynes, a veteran kicker, to replace Barth while he is out recovering.

Achilles tendon tears are common sports injuries. You can help to avoid these injuries by stretching properly, wearing the proper footwear, and playing on appropriate surfaces.
