Kevin Pamphile Among Key Bucs Sitting

August 26th, 2016

PamphileUPDATE: 7:49 p.m. America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, better watch his back tonight.

Bucs sitting out tonight’s game against the Browns include guards Ali Marpet (ankle) and Kevin Pamphile, linebackers Daryl Smith and Devante Bond, plus Luke Stocker, Evan Spencer and Clinton McDonald.

Marpet and Pamphile are pegged as this season’s starting guards, as $9 million man J.R. Sweezy has yet to practice since arriving in March.

Joe assumes Evan Smith will play right guard tonight, and who knows what the Bucs will do at left guard. The Pamphile absence is a mystery. Joe talked to Pamphile after practice on Wednesday and he was happy and bubbly.

UPDATE: 7:44 p.m.: Per Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times, Pamphile has an excused absence and it is not injury-related.

    I think I just saw George Warhop on Dale Mabry looking for someone to play O-line.

  8. Destro44 Says:

    So I don’t like the idea of playing Winston behind this tattered o line. I figure we got to practice against the 3-4 this week, why not play all three backups this week and then when guys are healthy play a tune up game with starters next week when other teams are fielding teams of FedEx drivers to get some rhythm and confidence.

    I would pull Winston early. Showcase Glennon.
