The Tampa Bay Buccaneers suffered two more injuries to their offensive line on Saturday. 

Both Robert Hainsey and Nick Leverett, who play center, got hurt during the Bucs' final preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts. 

Head coach Todd Bowles didn't have an update on their respective injuries when he spoke to reporters on Monday since both are undergoing further testing. 

Hainsey has been starting in place of Ryan Jensen, who tore his ACL during training camp. He's expected to be out for the entire season. 

Bowles also confirmed that they'll wait to see the results of the tests before they decide on adding an offensive lineman or two. 

The Buccaneers finished 0-3 in the preseason, but that all goes out the window when the regular season starts on Sept. 11.
