The Bucs announced Wednesday that Barth was injured last week in his hometown of Wilmington, N.C., and underwent successful surgery on Monday. He will be placed on the non-football injury list.

Tynes is a ninth-year pro who spent the past six seasons with the New York Giants, helping them win NFL titles in 2007 and 2011. He was a Pro Bowl alternate last season.

Barth signed a four-year, $13.2 million contract extension in 2012, when he was designated as the club's franchise player. Over the past four seasons, he converted a team-record 84.3 percent of his field goal attempts.

Led by quarterback Josh Freeman (pictured), the Bucs are currently 50/1 to win the 2014 Super Bowl according to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv.
