Jamon Meredith injury: Buccaneers guard rolls his ankle

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

The severity of the offensive lineman's injury is unknown.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive guard Jamon Meredith is coping with an ankle injury that limited him in practice Wednesday. Meredith was spotted leaving the locker room on crutches, and the severity of the injury is uncertain at this point.

Meredith has appeared in seven games for the Bucs this season, five of them as the starter. Tampa Bay is dealing with multiple injuries to its offensive line, and Meredith initially was a reserve who had been called upon to step in when the team lost Davin Joseph. Roger Allen, who began the season on the Bucs' practice squad, is listed as Meredith's backup.

Meredith is in his fourth NFL season; the South Carolina product has appeared in 24 games as a professional and made nine starts, including the games he's played for the Buccaneers this season. Prior to 2012, he hadn't started a game since 2009.

Tampa Bay returns to the field this Sunday to play the Carolina Panthers.
