Banks, McDonald Among Official Inactive Bucs

October 23rd, 2016
Trade protection?

Trade protection?

When was the last time Johnthan Banks was deactivated for a game?

Sheesh, how far the Bucs’ 2013 second-round pick has fallen.

Here are today’s Bucs inactives, per team reporter Scott Smith.

QB Ryan Griffin
RB Doug Martin
CB Johnthan Banks
T Leonard Wester
G Caleb Benenoch
DE Robert Ayers
DT Clinton McDonald

No big surprises there. McDonald’s hamstring is ready.

Joe wonders whether Banks is being protected by the Bucs, with the trade deadline looming on Nov. 1. Perhaps there’s a team or two out there bidding on Banks, the Bucs’ interception leader in 2014.

    So does this mean Murphy is playing? And is IR Sweezy still on the pup list?

    You lot are the most negative “Fans” I think I’ve ever seen. Good lord.

  7. ElioT Says:

    Murphy can practice but isn’t counting against the 53 until they activate him.

  8. ElioT Says:

    Jesus what’s wrong with banks?

    It’d be nice to have one CB over 6 feet tall. Lol

  9. No_bucs_given Says:

    The Banks move is probably for more depth elsewhere. Like DT substitutions vs chip.

    I feel you sir.

    Most of the “fans” on this page are toxic fools.

    They are also probably secretly racist, overweight, donald trump/vladmir putin loving, ugly, porn watching LOSERS that have no compassion in their hearts for their fellow humans.

    I, on the other hand, am a MLK loving, Bob Marley listening, Warrick Dunn supporting, peace-loving, free thinking, POSITIVE fan who LOVES his Buccaneer BROTHERS.

    I love this team.

    Anyone who hates Dirk Koetter or GMC or Chris Conte or any other of the hardworking WARRIORS that puts on a hard hat every day and goes to work everyday to PROVIDE for his family AND FOLLOW HIS DREAMS,

    should walk the freaking PLANK and stop watching the Bucs!!

    As Jay-Z says, “Love me or leave me alone.”

    The same goes for the Bucs.

    Love them or leave them alone!!!
