Bucs' Vita Vea loses tooth, mouth bloodied in win vs. Colts

During the team’s road game against the Indianapolis Colts, Vea smashed his face into Colts offensive guard Mark Glowinski’s helmet.

Vea, a four-year pro, had his own helmet come loose, which left the bottom portion of his face exposed. His mouth filled with blood and he lost a tooth.
