Injured Groin Pulls Mankins Out Of Practice

October 8th, 2015


Nothing like news of a bad groin to make a man count his blessings.

Logan Mankins has an injured groin, Lovie Smith revealed this afternoon. Apparently, it happened yesterday and Mankins missed practice today.

Various reports claim the remaining Milk Carton, tackle Kevin Pamphile, was seen playing left guard at today’s session.

Lovie wouldn’t talk about Pamphile playing guard at his post-practice news conference. Lovie said he doesn’t discuss a player playing a position he hasn’t played before for the team. Um, ok. That was an interesting explanation Joe hadn’t heard previously.

With a bye week coming after the Bucs-Jaguars game, Joe sincerely hopes the Bucs rest Mankins on Sunday if his groin is dicey. They can’t afford to lose him for the season.

However, Sunday is such a huge game for the state of the franchise, and Mankins is earning $7 million per year, Joe suspects Mankins will be out there if he can play.

    Literally just finished reading how Mankins is a positive influence on Donovan Smith, and 3…2…1…. He’s injured lol

    Get well soon, Mr Mankins

    Nothing a little spit and elbow grease can’t cure.

    Mankins is gone when Dotson returns.

    Instead of the motto being “Siege the Day” they should have named it ” The Groin Pull”!!!!!

    Congratulations for making the dumbest comment of the year on Joe do you have an award yet?

    Now watch me whip whip…

    Watch me nae nae…

    Hopefully it’s not too serious. He’s far too important to the growth of our rookies to miss extended time. I’m with you Joe. If it’s questionable they gotta sit him and let him get plenty of rest during the bye week. Rest up Mankins!

    I guess @passthebuc doesn’t know that Dotson and Mankins play different positions… Man I don’t understand why they drafted Jameis when they already had Gerald McCoy! Hahahahahaha… 🙂

    Tape an aspirin on it.

  10. Buc1987 Says:

    I don’t get it what did passthebuc say? I mean right now I am a loopy from some meds I have to take, but I don’t it.

    He was just stating a fact that sucks. I’m sure he means we lose one starter on the o-line when another one returns and that sucks.

    Least that’s the way I took it. Not the dumbest thing said on these boards. Hell we ought to start a HOF of dumb comments in the Message Boards. No I’m not exempt, I can be moronic too.

    Yeah, big pharma has something to make the pain go away and replace it with side effects.

  12. Buc1987 Says:

    Buccfan37…I’m only 45 and these doctors have me on more damn meds than a 70 year old man. I think I take 9 different meds a day. Lots of side effects.

  13. DB55 Says:


    Go to break com and check out the vid of the little kids whipping on the field. Lol, good times.

  14. Buc1987 Says: the coaches must have been losing their minds..

  15. DB55 Says:

    Gotta have fun man! All work and no play….and what not.

  16. rayjay1122 Says:

    The Lightning are back in season, just send Mankins to see their doctor and he will be just fine since Hockey players play through much worse. Go Bolts!!! Finally a winning team to watch!!

  17. Buc1987 Says:

    rayjay1122…just curious what’s the 1122 stand for? Was 1111 already taken up?lol

    When I finally go to a doctor for Buccaneer fan depression, I will likely catch up with you on the medications. Maybe the Bucs games will be tolerable. I mean, I want the good stuff. I want to have difficulty telling our jerseys from the opponents. I can then root blindly for whoever makes good plays. Wait a sec…. This actually doesn’t sound like too bad of an idea.

    Ever since we went to these new uniforms last year, things have been going down, down. 7-9, then 4-12 and last year 2-14. Can we bring back the pre-2014 uniforms? We gotta try something. A 7-9 season would be wonderful (how bad is that).

  20. bucsbedabest Says:

    Now is the perfect opportunity to move Donovan Smith to LG and Kevin Pamphile to LT? Who is the one player who never seems to get hurt (knock on wood), always gives his all and does not have any penalties? Yea.. that guy from the tiny Division 3 college who could not handle the speed and the scheme in the NFL? Mongo good.

  21. Buccfan37 Says:

    87… stop taking the meds, they are only making you sicker. If you have high cholesterol statins are likely prescribed, the latest studies outside the established medical system indicate statins cause more damage than help to the body. These type of drugs rake in tens of billions of dollars yearly in America alone. Another falsehood pushed publicly is that drinking milk is essential to strong bones. Recent studies have found milk consumption actually causes osteoporosis. I’m no doctor but I realize western medicine is mostly BS. Think guinea pigs who are only worth extreme profit. At least cannabis is natural with known medicinal benefits that are widely varied.

    The 1122 is my wife and my wedding date. November 22nd. Rayjay is just because her name is Rachael and my name is Jason, so I just put the first syllables of our names together as a play on the stadium’s name and followed with wedding date. That way I can remember my user name. LOL

  23. rayjay1122 Says:

    ^^^^Actually that way I will remember my anniversary!!!LOL

  24. DB55 Says:

    That’s actually brilliant ray jay.

  25. DB55 Says:

    I hope Jaboo is watching this game. #checkdownwhennecessary

  26. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Check downs are for sailors.

    This is the perfect opportunity to get Marpet to left guard and D. Smith away from left tackle. Start Marpet in place of Mankins and put D. Smith at I think a natural position for him at right guard. Pamphile needs one more shot at Left tackle and I think we have something special. Pamphile played great in a preseason win before he was injured and hehas looked to be another qquality steal fron Lovie and Licht first draft. I think they should let him show what he can do. Im feeling Pamphile can be good if he can stay healthy.
