Bruce Arians Has Incredible Response To Vita Vea Losing A Tooth During Colts Game

This is big boy football. Shame on you if you're a reporter who thought Bruce Arians would be concerned about his nose tackle losing a tooth after being popped by a Colts lineman.

"I don't care. He's got 30 other ones," Arians said Sunday after his Buccaneers beat Indianapolis 38-31 and Vita Vea left one of his teeth on the carpet at Lucas Oil Stadium.

"That ain't nothin'," Bruce added when the reporter pressed him on Vea continuing to play with his 30 teeth. Yes, the adult mouth typically has 32 teeth. Maybe Vita and Bruce have had a conversation on this before and Bruce knew how many teeth were in his nose tackle's mouth.

Vita laughed off the missing tooth by taking to Instagram Story where he asked Colgate if they could spare some special toothpaste and asked fans if he should replace the tooth with a gold tooth "like every other Tongan."
