Tampa Bay Buccaneers place-kicker Connor Barth suffered a torn Achilles' tendon playing in a charity basketball game on Friday that will sideline him for the 2013 season, the team announced Wednesday.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced on Wednesday that kicker Connor Barth will miss the 2013 season after suffering a torn Achilles tendon. According to the Buccaneers, Barth suffered the injury while playing in a charity basketball game with other NFL players last Friday night. Barth underwent surgery on Monday, but with a six-to-ninth month recovery time, he is not expected to return to the field at any point during the 2013 season. Barth, 27, joined the Buccaneers midway through the 2009 season after previous stints with the Kansas City Chiefs and Miami Dolphins. In 56 games over the last three-plus seasons in Tampa, Barth is 91-of-108 on field goal attempts, an 84.3 percent success rate that is highest in franchise history. The Buccaneers designated Barth their "franchise player" last offseason before signing him to a four-year, $13.2 million contract that included $4 million in guaranteed money. Barth is scheduled to earn $2.3 million in base salary this season, with $500,000 guaranteed. Since the injury happened off the field, the Buccaneers could place Barth on the "non-football injury" list and attempt to renegotiate his contract to include a "split" salary, which would pay him at a reduced rate while he is on the reserved list this season. In addition to the Barth injury, the Buccaneers announced the signing of veteran kicker Lawrence Tynes.

When Mr. Irrelevant, Justice Cunningham , had his name called Saturday, the fantasy football mock season officially got underway. To kick off Yahoo!'s festivities, we'll mock two rounds per day Tuesday-Friday (12-teams, PPR scoring) to help you get educated on which players will be valued/undervalued when the bulk of the draft season begins in August. Please declare a winner and/or express your general disdain for our 'stupidity' in the comments section below. ROUND 1 Adrian Peterson, RB, Minnesota Vikings (PK1, RB1) – Is there even an argument for anyone else? Only a lunatic contrarian would veer away from the game's best back, coming off an all-time season. – Behrens 1 Arian Foster, RB, Houston Texans (PK2, RB2) – There really shouldn't be much debate with the top two picks in 2013. Foster gave us over 1,600 scrimmage yards last season with 17 scores, and he was terrific in the playoffs. – Behrens 2 Doug Martin, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (PK3, RB3) – Lands No. 3 here after finishing behind only Peterson and Foster in terms of RB fantasy points as a rookie. And in PPR leagues, only Peterson was better out of the backfield. – Brandon 1 LeSean McCoy, RB, Philadelphia Eagles (PK4, RB4) – Every indication is that Chip Kelly will deploy a run-heavy system in Philly, so McCoy, with his versatility and elusiveness, should be put to good use. Plus, he's still only 24 years old – plenty of tread left on the tires. – Brandon 2 Ray Rice, RB, Baltimore Ravens (PK5, RB5) – Page me when he has a bad season (okay, Tweet me, or Facebook me, or text me, maybe). Even in an ordinary campaign for Rice, we saw double-digit touchdowns, 61 receptions, and one absolute clowning of the San Diego Chargers. Welcome to the huddle. – Pianow 1
