CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will not go through with a changing of the guard after all.
The Bucs were forced this week to contemplate a change at right guard after starter Jamon Meredith went down on Wednesday with an ankle injury but Meredith with start today’s game against the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium.
A change, which would have likely involved moving third-year pro Roger Allen into the lineup, would have been the fourth the Bucs have made at right guard since the start of the preseason.
The run of injuries at that spot began when Pro Bowler Davin Joseph went down with a season-ending knee injury during the preseason and continued when the Bucs moved Meredith into the starting lineup as a replacement for Ted Larsen.
The Bucs will have at least one other lineup change today, that at strongside linebacker, where Adam Hayward steps in for Quincy Black, who was lost for the season after suffering a neck/shoulder injury last Sunday.
The Bucs inactives for today’s game are running back Michael Smith, cornerback Danny Gorrer, safety Keith Tandy, linebacker Najee Goode, wide receiver Chris Owusu, and defensive tackles Corey Irvin and Matthew Masifilo.
Masifilo was just signed to the Bucs 53-man roster on Saturday. He was signed off the 49ers practice squad. To make room for Masifilo the Bucs released defensive end Markus White.
