RB Doug Martin not practicing; LT Donovan Smith back
Just as one key offensive starter returns to practice for the Bucs on Thursday, another is suddenly sidelined.
Rookie left tackle Donovan Smith, held out with a knee injury Wednesday, was back participating on a limited basis Thursday afternoon, but running back Doug Martin was sidelined, with coach Lovie Smith explaining that he "hit his knee" in practice Wednesday and was held out. "Should be OK," the coach said.
Cornerback Johnthan Banks (knee) remains sidelined, as do center Evan Smith (ankle) and tight ends Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) and Luke Stocker (hip).
