Guard Mankins among six out with injury for Bucs
Left guard Logan Mankins is inactive for today's Bucs game against the Jaguars, with backup tackle Kevin Pamphile pressed into his starting role as injuries continue to impact Tampa Bay's offensive line.
Five other Bucs are inactive due to injuries -- CB Johnthan Banks (knee), TE Luke Stocker and WR Russell Shepard for a second straight week, C Evan Smith (ankle) and TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) for a third straight week. No. 3 QB Ryan Griffin is the final inactive and only healthy scratch this week.
Mike Jenkins is expected to start again for Banks at cornerback, with Joe Hawley expect to step in for Smith at center. The only two healthy offensive line starters for the Bucs are rookie Donovan Smith (left tackle) and Ali Marpet (right guard), with Pamphile making just his third career NFL start and his first as a guard, and Gosder Cherilus filling in at right tackle while Demar Dotson remains out with a knee injury.
