Calijah Kancey, who the Bucs' selected with their first-round pick, suffered a strained calf and is expected to miss four weeks, per Adam Schefter. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

The Bucs selected Kancey with the 19th pick in this year's draft and the Northwestern DT may be forced to miss some time in his rookie season. Still, a four-week diagnosis does give the youngster a chance to suit up in Week 1 when the Bucs take on the Vikings. Kancey is an athletic DT who should fit well in the Bucs' pass rush. Kancey boasts impressive speed for a big man, clocking in a 4.67 40-yard dash. Hopefully, he recovers quickly as the Bucs look to stay afloat, post-Brady.
