Bucs' Jeremy Trueblood inactive due to 'lack of versatility'

Now that Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive lineman Jeremy Trueblood is coming off the bench, it's been more difficult for the team to justify a spot for him on the active roster. He was inactive in Week 4, as head coach Greg Schiano explained to reporters that he decided to give Trueblood's spot to Jamon Meredith.

"We felt like Jamon gave us more position flexibility," Schiano said. "It was a tough one. I love Trueblood. I think he's everything we want: Hard-working, (pays) attention to detail, tough. But it's just when you're not the starter, when you're a backup and you dress seven offensive linemen, it's (about) position flexibility at that point."

Trueblood has started one game for the Bucs in 2012 and started 15 games for the team in 2011. Over the course of his 6+ year career with Tampa Bay, he has made 84 starts and appeared in a total of 94 games.
