Tampa Bay Buccaneers lineman Vita Vea lost a tooth Sunday during a win over the Colts.
During the 38-31 victory, the Buccaneers defensive lineman was popped in the mouth by an Indy player’s helmet, and he had a tooth snapped in half in the process. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

That has to hurt like absolute hell. Imagine getting popped in the mouth and losing a tooth. If that doesn’t make you cringe, then you’re way tougher than I am.
Even thinking about it has my teeth hurting. Yet, it didn’t even look like it slowed down Vea. He took it like an absolute champ.

Imagine the type of guts you have to have to lose a tooth during a game and seemingly not even lose a step at all.
He just kept grinding it out like it was no big deal at all. That’s the kind of guy you want in your locker room.
That’s the kind of guy you want in your foxhole.

Props to him for being one hell of a tough player. That’s the kind of grit fans love to see.
